The Kifaru Baby Yacht Is a Fighter Plane Without Wings

  • Luca Dini, the designer of the Italian-built Kifaru Baby, describes the open-class 43-foot yacht as “a fighter plane without wings.”

Luca Dini, the designer of the Italian-built Kifaru Baby (kifaruyacht.com), describes the open-class 43-foot yacht as “a fighter plane without wings.” Presumably he’s referring to the vessel’s lightweight construction (all aluminum), high performance (45-knot top speed), and streamlined design. This last element is enhanced by several retractable features, including a six-place teak table on the foredeck that’s covered by a sun pad when it’s stowed away. The yacht also features a gangway that expands hydraulically to nearly 4 feet long, and the swim platform is equipped with a full-height shower on a retractable pole. The Baby, priced at $650,000, debuted in September, two months after Cantiere Navale Italia acquired the Kifaru brand.
