CBI Navi has recently launched two new motoryachts, the 33-metre "Baloo" and the 51-metre "Alibi", the latter the largest built to date by this Viareggio- based boatyard. For the construction of "Alibi", CBI Navi turned to Luca Dini for design of the exteriors and Giorgio Radice for the interior décor. This collaboration has resulted in a four-deck motor yacht, with steel bottom and upperworks in aluminium. Plenty of space inside, where there are numerous rooms dedicated to leisure, four cabins for the crew and seven for guests. "Alibi" meets all the Lloyd's Register and MCA requisites. The more compact "Baloo" is a 33-metre motor yacht with four decks. Inside it has a full beam owner's suite and four guest cabins, plus another two for the crew.
