Referencing a classic cruiser from the 1960s, Cantieri di Pisa’s new 72-foot Kitalpha 22 pairs the sophisticated stylings of that bygone era with innovative design and contemporary comforts to present the perfect gentleman’s yacht for today. Adding to its allure is a choice of two hull constructions and layout configurations considerate to the owner’s needs.
Designed by Luca Dini, the yacht maximizes useable space while maintaining a minimalist refinement. The light-alloy-hulled version features a multipurpose lower deck that can accommodate a beach club, gym, or spa. On the same level, a sliding glass partition separates the air-conditioned interior from the transom door which, when extended, opens to form a bathing platform for additional lounge space. The main deck displays the tender (detailed in the same color tones and trim as the yacht) at the stern along with a furnished dining area. And a hydraulic, telescoping ladder provides access to the lower deck or water. The steel-hull selection favors the tender tucked away at the stern of the lower deck while the main deck is dedicated to dining and reclining. At the bow, symmetrically arcing teak provides the base for a sundeck. Guests are accommodated in four cabins while one is dedicated to the crew.
Powering the suave seafarer are either two Volvo D16 MH engines (for a maximum speed of 14 knots and a nautical range of 1,500 nautical miles) or two MAN R6-800 engines (for a maximum speed of 19 knots and a range of 2,000 nautical miles) for the steel and alloy options, respectively.
