Fincantieri’s 394-foot Y910 project lets you cruise in lavish style – Robb Report
A new yacht is good, but your own personalized explorer is better. And that’s exactly what’s on offer this fall.
Boathouse Auctions and Concierge Auctions with Eric Althaus of Althaus Luxury Yachting and Guy Marchal of Symphony Marine offer sailors the option of purchasing a 394ft and fitting it to the nth degree.
The expedition yacht in question, known as Project Y910, was outfitted by venerable shipbuilder Fincantieri and features naval architecture by Robert McFarlane. Considered one of the largest superyachts currently under construction, she sports an ice-class hull reused from the passenger ship of the 90s Vladimir Shivilikhin which has been lengthened and fitted with a new aluminum superstructure.
With the basic components almost complete, the conversion project will take much less time to complete than a traditional build, and it can also be customized to your particular specifications. This means that the lavish interior, outdoor decks and amenities will be exactly to your liking.
Current plans call for accommodation for up to 36 people in a large owner’s suite, two VIP cabins and 15 double cabins. There is also space for up to 50 crew members. In addition to large indoor / outdoor living spaces, the Y910 project can be equipped with two swimming pools, two helipads, a helicopter hangar and no less than six garages with annexes for the shuttles.
You can also add a research lab, beach club, cinema, and more, depending on the vibe you’re looking for. An experienced team of architects, engineers and designers will also be on hand to help you make your dream ship a reality.
Equipped with hybrid propulsion, the explorer should have a maximum speed of 9 knots with the electric motor and 16 knots with the diesel engines. It will also be able to cover approximately 10,000 nautical miles, sailing at 14 knots.
As you might expect, fine-tuning this behemoth will cost you dearly. Project Y910 is currently listed at 25 million euros (or approximately $ 28.98 million at current exchange rates) and will be offered online without reservation from November 11 to 23. Hey, no one said a custom explorer would be cheap.
