Zuccon International Project present 50m superyacht Teseo

Zuccon International Project has revealed their latest 50 metre superyacht design. Named Teseo, the brand were appointed by the Italian CRN shipyard to design a new yacht on an existing platform for the Explorer category. The result is a semi-custom Expedition yacht available with three different layouts.

Reflecting on the principal challenge involved in the project, Bernardo Zuccon, head of design at Zuccon International Project, explains that maximum flexibility in the distribution of space is the key element characterising Teseo, expressed in different available layouts. He says, “One key theme was definition of a flexible functional character capable of offering a variety of different opportunities for life on board, dynamic spaces that change with the needs of the person using the boat.”

In addition to offering flexibility in layout dependent on the owner’s needs and requirements, just some other notable characteristics of the new superyacht include improved fuel consumption as well as a wide selection of water toys and tenders on board. For example, the main deck is set up to house two tenders measuring 8 and 5 metres plus a water scooter at the stern. Once the tenders are launched, this area can also be transformed into a large lounge area.

One of the possibilities in the design is the possibility of creating a ‘tender bay’ thanks to little patios that can be opened up in the two walls to create a living area opening onto the beach club at the stern. The same space can also be used as a storage and diving area.

The distribution of the cabins over four decks can also be varied considerably. In the first proposal, the owners’ suite covers the full width of the main deck at the stern, with the four guest cabins located on the lower deck. This leaves space on the top deck free for outdoor areas, including a big sundeck at the prow, a panoramic living area and an expansive open deck at the stern.

The second solution features the owners’ cabin located on the lower deck along with two of the guest cabins, while the two remaining guest cabins are on the main deck. The indoor living area on this deck is intended for use as a balcony over the sea, with four sliding doors that can be used to unite it with the outdoor cockpit.

The third and final solution offers the owners greater privacy, moving the owners’ suite from the lower deck to the upper deck, over a big outdoor patio to the stern and an alfresco panoramic dining area to the prow.

Speaking of the design of the new project, Zuccon adds, “The concept of the boat has been interpreted incorrectly in recent decades, only too often considered a mere ‘toy for grown-ups’, an expression of extreme luxury and wealth which is in some ways physiological but has totally lost sight of the boat’s traditional function, the purpose for which it was conceived and created. This is the idea inspiring the development of a project drawing on the historic features of a type of product ideally representing the conceptual ideal of ‘Go Anywhere’ which we have a ‘moral’ duty to associate with the image of a ship.” He continues, “Teseo was therefore created at a time of strategic importance for this type of vessel, the features of which not only satisfy our need to be ‘Green’ but also respond to the increasingly spasmodic use of all the water toys now available on the market.”
