FITTIPALDI YACHTS 125'

From F1 to superyachts. Wilson Fittipaldi Jr and his brother Emerson have always distinguished themselves for their racing temperament, going into the world of four wheel competition, both as drivers and team managers including F1. After his driving days were over, Wilson pursued a career in designing and building racing cars ranging from karts to formula 2 and 3 to then abandon the motor racing world turning his attentions full time to the family's true passion: large yachts. Rather than be satisfied with owning a few, the famous driver chose to buy shipyards and equipment in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil, to build yachts up to 200'. Fittipaldi Yachts was thus in business and has already designed and sold two 110'footers with the valuable collaboration of the notorious Luiz de Basto design studio who was also instrumental for the development of a 125 foot planing motor yacht complete with forward bulb. Built in aluminium with Roberto Schofield Naval Architect's advice, it distinguishes itself for modern and interesting design contrasting classical furnishings. The layout of the bridge provides net and clear cut divisions between guest areas and crew's quarters each enjoying totally independent access.The guests have two identical VIP suites with queen sized beds and en suite bathrooms at their disposal as well as two further cabins with twin beds and en suite bathrooms. The crew's quarters situated in the bow area of the bridge comprise three cabins with bunk beds,as many bathrooms and a large mess and galley area. The owner's suite is situated in the bows in the main deck area and stretches across the full beam of the boat. In addition to the full king size bed it also comprises a rest area, two walk-in wardrobes and large bathroom quarters fitted with shower and Jacuzzi. On the same deck going aft we find a generously sized main galley equipped with professional utensils, a large bathroom for day use, a dining area and a main saloon. The exterior is instead divided into two distinct relaxing and socializing areas at either end of the boat and the stern part may be reached from the top deck. Here we find the controls station, a small saloon and a double cabin for the Captain.Going aft we reach another saloon complete with bar. The outer extension of this deck, hosts yet another living area and the larger of four on board tenders complete with its own crane. The sun deck, as its very name will suggest, is there for sunbathing enjoyment and is thus equipped with a comfortable seating area, deck chairs and a circular Jacuzzi as well as the fore-ever present bar counter. The boat's outfit is completed with the very latest multi media equipment,a stablising system when at anchor, and a stern hangar large enough to host a 3.5m tender and two water crafts.
