The lovely Solleone Yacht Was Meant For Sailing The Mediterranean
The largest sailing yacht developed by the Finnish shipyard Nautor has been called Solleone, built on the new Swan 115 S platform and designed inside out by the Argentinian-based design studio German Frers. The dreamy 35.2-meter yacht was penned down with cruising in mind and it will even come in a racing version, the Swan 115 FD, that will feature an exterior with racing vibes.
Solleone requires 5 of the yacht’s 6 crew members to stand by on deck, due to the strictly functional and manual-only systems and winches used to operate the sails, which is just what every sailing enthusiast wants.
However, the open and uncluttered deck spaces will have guests enjoying every second of the trip, with uninterrupted all-round views, a large social U-shape area, lazy lunches and a dual-opening transom being part of the stylish offering.
The interior decor has been penned down by Florence-based designer Michele Bönan, who managed to create a sophisticated and functional sailing-friendly environment. The Italian style below deck will surely impress the future owners of his beauty and their guests, as will the comfortable headroom height and various large skylights.
White leather deckheads paired with a satin-finished teak flooring, alongside a clever use of natural and artificial lighting add to an overall luxurious and classic atmosphere.
A full beam master suite, located aft, comes with a surprisingly large en suite bathroom, while passengers will be able to enjoy two identical twin cabins, a raised saloon, a double cabin to starboard and an informal dining area. With a top speed of 25 knots, this beautiful vessel is more than meets the eye, while the eye is more than pleased.
