Rossinavi introduces Polaris at the Monaco Yacht Show 2014
On the occasion of the Monaco Yacht Show 2014, Rossinavi unveiled the latest boat delivered by the shipyard: the “Prince Shark” planning yacht 48m Polaris. The super yacht Polaris has been exclusively designed for Rossinavi Shipyard in Viareggio by Enrico Gobbi of Team For Design, who developed the complete design of both exteriors and interiors, whilst its naval architecture is signed by Arrabito Naval Architects.
To create an elegant architecture, both sporty and aggressive, Enrico Gobbi designed this stylish megayacht with neat and dynamic exterior lines. With its well proportioned volume, Polaris guarantees extremely comfortable and spacious interior areas.
As a matter of fact, the sleekness of the yacht’ s exterior lines combined with the unique design of the superstructure’ s long and continuous windows make this yacht appear even longer.
Polaris’ special appeal is conferred by the clever design of some sporty and dynamic details, recalling a military style, such as front windshields inclined 45° degrees backwards. To convey some aggressiveness to the yacht, some characteristic element were specially designed for the superyacht Polaris, such as the side pillars in steel and glass, the window shapes of the hull and of the superstructure etc.
From the meticulous study of lines and shapes, proportions and ergonomics, Enrico Gobbi along with his Team created a megayacht that with three decks plus a fly deck maintains an extraordinary sleek volume.
The most important exterior area is certainly the fly deck. This outstanding area features a 3.5 meters long scenic pool that boasts a front transparent glass partition and a waterfall system. Finally, this area is also characterized by luxurious details in teak wood and stainless steel inserts, whilst the inside of the pool has been decorated with Italian made glass mosaic tiles.
Polaris‘ interior style is characterized by a balanced compromise of modern and contemporary influences, with an eclectic hint inspired by the client’s personal tastes.
To convey a timeless elegance and a luxurious feeling to Polaris, Enrico Gobbi mainly used natural materials such as glossy dark Ebony wood, mainly used for custom designed furniture, ivory Maple wood and precious ivory white coloured leathers.
The choice of natural elements creates a play of light and dark enhanced by prestigious marbles that infuse the vessel with its own well defined personality. A particular touch of modernity is given by some details on furniture and walls in polished stainless steel garnished with decorative studs.
To convey a warm and welcoming atmosphere, Enrico Gobbi and his team placed much attention on details. Cottons, silks and velvets have been selected by Enrico Gobbi among the exclusive Armani Casa textile collection. Artworks coming from Venice, made in Murano glass, have been placed in important focal-areas of Polaris, always emphasized by a clever lighting scheme.
To top it all, a selection of artistic paintings including two rare examples dating back to 18th Century enhance the important lobbies.
The most important interior area is probably the main lobby which guarantees a “wow” effect. Indeed, the contrast between light and dark materials, along with the stunning lighting scene, surround the centrally placed custom made Swaroski crystal cascade chandelier running from the upper deck down to lower deck guest area.
Althought Polaris features an outstanding design, be it inside or outside, this superyacht also boasts outstanding performances. Indeed, the all-aluminum luxury yacht Polaris can reach a top speed of 24 knots.
According to Rossinavi, Polaris could establish a new level of “top efficiency hull on the market”.
