Italian boatbuilder presents the concept design for a new 15m motoryacht. Fiart 52 is scheduled to touch water by the end of July and will make her debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2016

Italy’s Fiart Mare has announced the launch of Fiart 52, a new model in the sports cruiser segment.

The Bacoli, Naples-based boatbuilder, says the intention behind Fiart 52 is to give the market an authentic “world boat”. “We’ve poured a wealth of knowledge built up over six decades of nautical construction into creating a model optimised to meet the tastes and demands of a fast-evolving consumer base,” the company says in a statement.

The Fiart 52 is scheduled to make its world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival in early September 2016. She is a yacht that although retains quite a typical Mediterranean layout and plenty of signature Fiart Mare styling cues, introduces substantial design and thus architectural and functional innovations.

This new model is the product of meticulous design that draws on Fiart Mare’s vast experience in the fast cruiser sector. The result is a sleek take on the concept that mirrors changing times and evolving demands by affording much broader scope for customisation of both the fit-out and deck plan.

The new Fiart 52 has been designed to provide exceptional performance of an all-new hull with both superior reliability and guest well-being to the extent that it sets a new benchmark for its competitors worldwide.

The yacht is equipped with Volvo Penta engine and IPS set-up for reduced vibration and noise levels.

In addition, she is the first Fiart Mare yacht to feature a deck dinette which is sheltered by the top and can be enclosed aft, creating a bright, external space that can be climate-controlled to provide complete protection both from cold, wet weather in winter and excessive summer heat.

Fiart Mare says it will unveil more details of the new design in due course and in time for its launch by the end of July.

Headquartered in Bacoli, Fiart Mare produces motoryachts ranging from 10m-18m. The company also provides winter storage at its 50,000 square meters shipyard, including a 20,000sq m area under cover. Other yacht services include washing, repainting and fixing. The site is guarded 24 hours a day.
