The Italian shipyard Rossinavi has announced the delivery of EIV, a 48.80 meters superyacht commissioned by an American customer. Previously known as Project Vector 50, EIV is a fusion of Rossinavi’s expertise, the Italian interior and exterior design of the Venetian studio Team for Design – Enrico Gobbi, based in Venice, and technological and mechanical components from the United States.
“Project Vector is presented in a 50 meter version under the name of EIV, the “little sister” of Utopia IV. The success of this concept lies in its balance between a generous layout, which offers several features, and its sporty lines. Thanks to its fast displacement aluminum hull, EIV is able to cross oceans and navigate in shallow water areas. Performance, luxury and seaworthiness are the keywords that best describe this new Rossinavi,” said Federico Rossi, Chief Operating Officer of Rossinavi.
Inspired by elements of the automotive industry, EIV boasts a well-proportioned and slender silhouette enriched by continuous glass surfaces. The interior layout can accommodate up to 8 people in four double cabins, each with a private bathroom. The full-beam owner’s suite is located at the front of the main deck and includes a private terrace on the starboard side.
The interior design is characterized by bright and natural shades of wood and fabrics expertly combined with prestigious upholstery materials, such as onyx and leather, and sophisticated bronzed brass details. Most of the furniture has been personally designed by Enrico Gobbi and upholstered with high-end fabrics from leading international brands such as Hermès, Rubelli and Armani Casa.
