Roberto Cavalli took part in the launch ceremony of his new 88-foot yacht Freedom at the CCN shipyard in Carrara, Italy, last week. He designed the entirely bespoke yacht, which is part of CCN’s Fuoriserie line, with his friend and designer Tommaso Spadolini.
Freedom features an aluminum hull and superstructure and reaches a maximum speed of 40 knots with its three water-jet engines. CCN followed Cavalli’s request to enhance maximum contact with the sea, while still ensuring privacy. In addition, the exterior and interior will reflect the fashion designer’s personality and design traits.
“Designing and building this yacht has been a real ‘challenge of style against style.’ The creativity and passion found in Freedom is the best possible mix and I can only thank the man who, with his visions, signed the future of elegance and taste,” says CCN’s CEO Diego Deprati.
Moving into the interior, the full-beam master stateroom is located behind the helm station. Making the most use of sunlight while on board, a central skylight allows a pop of natural light inside, with the option of concealing curtains across the cockpit to allow for shade and privacy when so desired. Down on the lower deck are two guest cabins and crew cabins. Further features include a private area with pilot seat, and space aft for the tender to be stowed.
CCN’s Fuoriserie line has created a number of one-off unique projects, meeting clients’ desires for personalized yachts. The team has confirmed that they are “currently building another 101-foot yacht designed by Guido de Groot and sold to a European owner.”
