Floating Life Unveils New Line of Explorer Yachts
During a celebration held for its clients at the company’s Vacallo headquarters, Floating Life unveiled a new line of superyachts that feature new solutions for experiencing the sea and life on the water.
The Floating Life Night, held for Floating Life yacht owners, charter clients and other industry representatives, celebrated a year of success during a difficult period. The boutique company, founded by Andrea Pezzini and Barbara Tambani to provide holistic yachting services globally, welcomed its guests with cocktails at the Villa in Vacallo, Switzerland. The event was a testimony to a flourishing year for Floating Life, renowned for professionalism in welcoming and fulfilling the requests and needs of its Owners.
“We are very satisfied with the success of this event,” said Andrea Pezzini, CEO of Floating Life. “The evening strengthened the relationship with our clients. We are pleased but also surprised at the number of clients who came and who enthusiastically joined our event in such a difficult historical moment given the ongoing pandemic. This has given us so much energy that we transform into just as much enthusiasm.
“It was a very pleasant evening, a moment of celebration, a gathering of people who share the same interest: Floating Life and for what it has to offer with so much passion.”
The night also saw the presentation of the FL42 and FL Series (including the 42m together with the FL38 and FL47 models). The FL line offers Owners fully customisable yachts based on a technical platform designed by Andrea Pezzini in collaboration with Satura Studio. The yachts are characterised by the addition of an extra deck: the under lower deck. This space is designed to fit the engine room, and allows for more space in the guest area on the lower deck, creating a corridor that puts the space in direct contact with the beach area.
Moving the engine room to the under lower deck has the additional benefit of bringing all the weights lower, improving the stability of the yacht and equipping the engine room with technical space to be used for storage.
All the models in are designed to have a range of 5,000 nautical miles capable of making Atlantic crossings. The FL42 is designed to be used as a Fractional Ownership or Timesharing, two types of timeshares designed by Floating Life.
“The FL line has similarities to what we proposed on the K42 Audace, but at the same time has something new to offer,” explains the founder of Floating Life. “First of all, the hull has been redesigned by reworking the calculations and hydrodynamic resistance factors of the hull. The corridor that we managed to obtain in the lower deck, by moving the engine room to a different level, is a convenient access to the sea from all the cabins. On each deck there is also a day head, a rarity on board 40m yachts, especially on the sun deck.
“The 42m is certainly an ideal yacht for those who want to experience the sea to the fullest, well-structured and with a very high level of safety. It is a transversal yacht suitable for a wide audience of owners. The ease of access to the sea and the agile environments, with a simple but very refined style, make it a perfect yacht for those who love to experience the yacht in total freedom.
An appealing yacht, that has already captured the attention of some owners during the evening, has had clients interested in examining the designs that adhere to their personal requests and tastes.”
