The Italian yacht designer Federico Fiorentino (federicofiorentino.it) has introduced a 164-foot concept vessel called The Belafonte. The design features a streamlined, bronze-colored hull and superstructure that are made of aluminum. It calls for a fast-displacement hull that would enable a top speed of 18 to 24 knots, depending on the propulsion system. The yacht would accommodate 10 guests in five cabins, including a 904-square-foot main-deck owner’s suite with a fold-down balcony, two bathrooms, and two walk-in closets. The main deck’s design also includes a spacious saloon with a dining area, as well as a swimming pool. The partially enclosed upper deck would feature an outdoor dining area, a shaded bar, and a hot tub.
