VESPRO 55: CENTOUNONAVI & MJP Propel Luxury Yachting into the Future


Marine Jet Power (MJP), a leader in the waterjet propulsion market, has entered an exclusive collaboration with CENTOUNONAVI, an emerging luxury yacht builder in Italy, to unveil the VESPRO 55. This groundbreaking day yacht was recently showcased at the Cannes Yachting Festival, setting new standards in high-speed luxury travel.


Focus on Weight Reduction

Featuring MJP 350 X waterjets, the VESPRO 55 is the height of CENTOUNONAVI’s commitment to excellence. Crafted with precision and lightweight engineering, the
vessel’s hull boasts a remarkable 30 percent weight reduction, showcasing the
shipyards commitment to sustainable solutions. This emphasis on weight reduction
has enabled several design choices leading to smaller, lighter weight engines and
waterjets resulting in fuel efficiency.

Sustainability, speed and serenity

CENTOUNONAVI’s strategic partnership with Marine Jet Power highlights an
industry-wide trend, with more high-speed vessel designers and shipyards
integrating waterjets into their designs for not only speed but comfort onboard.
“The VESPRO 55’s design prioritizes both speed and serenity, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience for passengers, even at high speeds. The waterjet propulsion system, a key player in this equation, eliminates vibrations and noise, underscoring CENTOUNONAVI’s commitment to luxury yachting.
