Viva RoMa

  • Michael Verdon

RoMa, a recent launch from Viareggio Superyachts, allows 12 fortunate guests to roam in comfort across the 62-meter (203-ft.) quad-deck hull. Based on Espen Oeino’s design, the Italian shipyard created a handsome, exterior, with layered banks of windows that rise with each deck, providing a panoramic view of the bow. The yacht is an ocean crosser, with a range of 6,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. It reaches a top speed of 17 knots.

Given its vast size, virtually everything on RoMa is oversized, from the enormous Jacuzzi on the foredeck to the cinema/game room to the hotel-size salon and dining area to the fully equipped gymnasium and spacious sky lounge. Interior designer Newcruise also created a palatial but refined owner’s suite on the main deck. The full-beam suite offers a forward panoramic view as well as a separate lounge area and, of course, his-and-hers bathrooms. The VIP stateroom on the bridge deck is no slouch, either, with generous floor space and plentiful natural light. There are three additional staterooms on the main deck, each designed with an Italian sensibility—light colored, tasteful, and minimalist. RoMA is also the first superyacht to gain the American Bureau of Standards environmental safety rating. (561.655.2121, www.cnconnect.com)
