Shanghai Blunauta Yacht

Shangai Blunauta Yacht is a company found in 2004 by an Italian Chinese joint venture aiming at designing and building either sailing or motor superyachts over 40 metres in length, using above all steel, aluminium and fibreglass. "Cecilia" is the first newcomer from this new partnership: she is steel 52 - metre ketch designed by Roberto Greco in collaboration with Simone Morris featuring a classic and elegant design with a deckhouse well fitted in the whole.

A huge sailing area over a 40 metre main mast and a 35 metre mizzen mast, fine matching waterlines and the great wetted surface, guaranties high performance under sail in - line with that provided by the powerful 1.401 HP C32 Caterpillar. "Cecilia", according to what stated by the shipyard, can reach a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 13,5kn, at which she is capable of covering 7.000 miles without stopping. RINA 100 A1.1 "Y" and Charter Class (CCL) classifications proves her building quality and safety; in order to better comply with the rules required, she is completely equipped for.

Concerning layouts this yacht offers a fractioned below deck that features guests and owner's area consisting of three double and two twin beds cabins for ten people, six bathrooms, a liveable galley, a dinning area and service spaces. The fore end houses the crew's quarter for eight people divided into four cabins each with its private bathroom. The deck distinguishes itself by an impressive balance between internal and external living areas: inside the deckhouse there are huge spaces fitted up for relax and entertaining, a dinning area and the inner wheel - house, as well.

The cockpit features a dinette with seatings and tables and the external wheel - house. The transom area nestles one of the two tenders, the other being hoisted in a garage recessed in the fore extension of the superstructure: both tenders are by Castoldi, an Italian firm that suggests RIB with waterjet propulsion usually founded on board such yachts.
