Fiart Mare claims first for new 60-footer with hull number one now in construction
Thanks to what it calls ‘vertical repositioning’, new yacht brand Cetera claims to have come up with a new concept in boat design, creating a ’multispace’ yacht through the redistribution of the interior and exterior spaces. Cetera’s new 60-footer - the first hull of which is now under construction, was displayed for the first time at Boot Dusseldorf at the end of January.
“The main characteristics of the yacht may be summed up in the adjective ‘easy’: easy to live on board, easy to maintain, and also easy to build,” says Ernesto de Bartolomeis, general manager of Fiart Mare, where the first Cetera 60 is currently under construction. “When I first set eyes on the design, I immediately realised it was very different from what we typically produce at Fiart Mare, so we decided to set up a dedicated company to develop the product line. We really believe it represents something completely new for the market with features that will appeal to a wide range of international clients.”
Her main salon and three en-suite cabins are uniquely located on main deck. Placing the cabins on the main deck means they are further away from the engines and generators and away from water lapping for more acoustic comfort. Head height is 2m throughout with panoramic windows; the salon/dinette is placed forward for 180° sea views on three sides.

A central corridor connects the entire length of the yacht from bow to stern for safe and easy access, also for young children. A retractable swim platform with easy access from beach club-style cockpit.
A convertible-style upper deck, accessible by interior staircase, offers generous living/dining space for 8 guests with large open-plan galley.
“The MULTISPACE YACHT offers “stretching on board liveability” providing approximately 30sq m more living space on the Cetera 60 than other yacht in her size category with traditional layouts,” says Francesco Guida. “Moreover, the clear division between the technical and living areas means the yacht can be built more quickly and efficiently, which is a cost saving that is meant to be passed on to the client.”
Powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS 600 units, the Cetera 60 will have a top speed of 23 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots. The first Cetera 60 will make her international debut in the spring/summer of 2019.
