VSY (Viareggio Superyachts) launched its new 64m Espen Oeino-designed motoryacht in Livorno, Italy this week.

M/Y Atomic is the third unit in a design series by the acclaimed Norwegian architect, and is an evolution of the initial project seen in VSY’s first two yachts – Sealyon (ex-Candyscape II) and RoMa.

The project, which was sold and overseen by Jean-Claude Carme of Thompson, Westwood & White Yachts, incorporates the elements of design, engineering and functionality that the new owner required.

With an elegant interior by French designer Darnet Design, the new VSY 64M features six suites including a panoramic owner’s suite with exterior/interior terraces, a diving centre for all 12 guests, and a sundeck with a large infinity pool aft and fire pit forward.

The yacht also integrates environmental systems and programmes to reduce environmental impact and allow navigation in protected marine areas. A dynamic positioning system respects seabeds when anchoring, special filters purify exhaust fumes, and 4 x 200 kW generators power the diesel electric thrusters, allowing navigation under electric propulsion without starting the main engine.

This approach allows the yacht’s owner to cruise in remote areas of the world in a spirit of respect for the environment and marine life.

M/Y Atomic, which arrived in Livorno on a flatboat just for the launch, will now sail back to Viareggio for completion and final delivery.
