The staggering Aslec 4 by Rossi Navi

Updated on

The staggering Aslec 4 was launched back in 2012 by Italian shipyard Rossi Navi as a symbol of cruising perfection, opulence, eccentrics and luxury. Measuring 45 meters from bow to stern, this emperor of the seas has a story of its own.

Designed by Studio Spadolini in close collaboration with Rossi Navi, the Aslec 4 comes as a following project realised by the two brands, after the previously unveiled Numptia. The works of the design studio, based in Florence, span from 15 meter vessels to state of the art, grand superyachts, and from classic styles to contemporary designs. Under the experienced leading hand of Tomasso Spadolini, the studio boasts in excess of 30 years of expertise and has worked on more than a whopping 200 vessels since it was founded. No wonder the Aslec 4 looks so damn brilliant.

In fact, this partly owes to a different reason – Spadolini designed the Aslec 4 especially for one of his close friends. The works on the ship started as some initial sketches, completed back in 2009, and have been completed during March 2012, after 3 years of extensive building process. The idea behind it was to put together a brand new, innovative design, in close collaboration between the designer, the future owner and the shipyard. The hull of the Aslec 4 was fully crafted from steel, while the superstructure was built from marine grade aluminium. The exterior appearance is, in the end, streamlined and fully contemporary. A superbly interesting fact is that the sleek lines and curved shapes respect Italian designs, through both elegance and boldness.

Fully environmentally friendly and fuel efficient, the Aslec 4 is, according to the standards of today, a green cruiser. Upon boarding we’re welcomed by a large, 70-square-meter aft deck, which boasts a lounging arrangement that allows for pristine, breathtaking panoramas. It is minimalistic, exquisite and extremely pleasurable. There are two long sofas alongside a set of 4 directors chairs and two low cabinets, all symmetrically placed to ensure the most of space and the best of design. The contemporary feel is enhanced by the wide aft staircase which paves the way to the swimming platform.

The interior is modern, luminous and fresh, bearing the signature of the famous Rémi Tessier Design. Based on oak and ebony, alongside touches of carbon, gold leaf and black chrome, upon a sparkling background, this place is as modern as it is cozy. It encompasses the main saloon, with custom Tessier furniture, as it is divided between a light, grand central lounging space and an intimate bar area aft. The lounge boasts off-white, comfortable, large sofas and armchairs, alongside plush carpeting, reminders of the overall smoothness and friendly aesthetics of the Aslec 4. Apart from the obvious quality of the furniture and fittings, there are also loads of modern artworks to be discovered inside the Aslec 4. The integrated amenities are here to back this gorgeous atmosphere up, like the large flatscreen TV.

The central lobby serves as a link between the main saloon and the owner’s quarters, located fore. Put shortly, it mirrors the design of the main saloon, following the general theme of this stunning superyacht. The backlit staircases here are crafted from marble, while the walls boast with gold leaf décors. In terms of accommodation, the Aslec 4 features 5 luxury suites, which can provide shelter to 10+2 guests, the master suite being the cherry on the cake. There’s also a private office that leads towards the full beam stateroom. This area comprises his and hers walk-in wardrobes and a large master en-suite with big tub and separate shower area. A few contemporary features and touches ensure a friendly atmosphere like the mirror wall and integrated TV screen.

Heading belowdecks we stumble upon two twins and two double suites, each of the twins being further fitted with Pullmans. The guest cabins are equally lavish and soft, luxurious and comfortable, boasting ample storage spaces and en suites. The en-suites have been garnished with large entries, while the wide windows provide ample amounts of natural sunlight. Finally, upstairs, there’s the airy upper saloon, also used as the vessel’s main dining spot. It boasts a central round table and curvy dining chairs surrounded by large windows and ensuring breathtaking panoramas while enjoying a tasty meal. The aft deck further comprises a secondary large exterior space with a huge, round al fresco table and a U-shaped sofa. The fore deck, on the other hand, encompasses sun pads and a large panoramic cockpit. And there’s the sundeck, which is the most pleasurable place aboard the Aslec 4 – it comes with a large Jacuzzi and massive deck space.
