VERSILCRAFT - PLANET 110

The keenest admirers of the most recent Versilcraft production are to be found in the Far East. As a matter of fact, after the success of the Planet 105 presented last year, Hong Kong is where the request came from for the first Planet 110, the boatyard's new flagship, and which was followed by three more orders all coming from the Asiatic market. Launched in July - it will be presented at the forthcoming Boat Shows in Cannes and Genoa - this first model, on the wishes of the boat owner, has been furnished with the help of a Californian architecture firm. Italian marbles and extremely refined silks have been chosen for the furnishing, all in soft pastel shades. There is no lack of prestigious woods either, including ash, and finishing in the root of the same wood. The yacht, in plastic reinforced with fibreglass, has been built with the most up-to-date techniques and with top quality materials. Everything has been carried out according to the regulations and under the supervision of the Italian Classifying Body, RINA. The yacht, tested in the Vienna Model Basin, in order to maximise performance and stability, with a motorization composed of two MTÙs of 4,000 HP in total, ZF 4540 A reversing gears and 2 5-blade propellers in Nibral Class S, has a cruising speed of 23 knots and a range of 650 miles.
