One of the youngest established designers of the yacht world, Christian Grande has designed more than 70 yachts in just 20 years. His newest design, the 71ft Picchio Boat, is a modern floating island which can cruise for extended periods while taking advantage of the natural beauty of the sea and intimacy of sea travel. It reflects a new birth of yacht, channelling style and technical solutions dedicated to a more relaxed, recreational and contemplative lifestyle.
The main saloon/lounge area’s glass bottom floor or ‘submarine observatory’ incorporates innovative and impeccable design. The platform has been perfectly integrated and overlooks the sea between the hulls, brandishing views of the sea creatures below and showcases underwater spotlights at night. Boasting a lounging and dining area, as well as fully equipped bar, the spacious interiors are styled sumptuously with neutral tones to portray a homely feel, while still exuding a modern, clean look.
The yacht is able to accommodate up to 8 guests in two large en suite VIP cabins, children’s cabin with two pullman berths which can fold away and transform into a playroom and owner’s cabin on the main deck featuring a glass floor under the bed, spacious bathroom and office area. The Picchio takes to the seas with a max speed of 19kts and cruising speed 12kts, 31ft beam, 50 tons displacement and a range of 2500nm.
