Antonini Navi UP40 Crossover takes shape

italian yacht crossover

megayacht italian brandAntonini Navi’s Utility Platform 40, the yacht with the modular hull that can be adapted for three different types of displacement boat (Motoryacht, Explorer or Crossover), features a major modification in this version that improves the liveability of the stern area.

This area has been redesigned to turn it into nothing less than a private beach at the water’s edge, one that is convenient to use and raises no barriers of any kind. It is a decision that reflects today’s market trend, driven by the desire to enjoy this area with an even greater sense of freedom.

UP40 yacht, living on the water’s edge

The entire UP40 project, including all three types of yacht, is the work of Fulvio De Simoni, one of the driving forces behind the project, together with the Antonini family and concept creator and partner Aldo Manna.

UP40 – Crossover, available as always in both Open Deck and Enclosed Bridge versions, is now even more closely aligned with the demands of owners who want an ever-closer connection with the marine environment, while maintaining absolute privacy.

yacht interior designOne of the main features of this one-of-a-kind Crossover unit, with an overall length of 43 metres, a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure, is that it “establishes a direct link between the stern platform and both a beach area and the cockpit proper, eliminating the changes of level that have an impact on everyday life on board,” stressed the Architect De Simoni.

Generally speaking, our intention with this design solution is to offer the owner and their guests the opportunity to enjoy life on board to the full and in direct contact with the sea, creating nothing less than a ‘fully equipped platform on the water’s edge’, obtained primarily by lowering the height of the hull sides

A key aspect of the solution is successfully giving this area the perception of seamless space and volume, while protecting the cockpit with a real transom that is essential for safe navigation even in rough sea”.
