“Innovative design, lots of open-air space, close contact with the water, light-filled and airy interiors, flexible layout and furniture solutions… These were the ‘must have’ features requested by the owner that drove the exterior styling, general arrangement and interior design,” says Mario Pedol, co-founder of Nauta Yachts in Milan.

Developed for an experienced owner, the design contract for 70m IMAGINE was signed at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show. The naval architecture and engineering is at an advanced stage and tank testing is due to begin shortly. The yacht will be built in Italy for delivery in 2021/2022 and shipyard tenders are being evaluated with metal cutting due to start before the end of the year.

The exterior styling reflects Nauta’s trademark preference for clean, uncluttered design devoid of fussy or superfluous detailing. Visual lightness, seamless outdoor/indoor connection and opening to the surrounding environment, predominantly horizontal lines, long overhangs and the extensive use of glass gently inclined from the vertical, highlight the balanced, low-rise proportions, while the chamfered sheer line amidships adds a dynamic aspect to the displacement hull. The end result is a graceful yet powerful profile that belies a volume of 1,450GT distributed over 5 deck levels (plus an under-lower deck).

The expansive Beach Club is a very spectacular area, where Nauta’s design philosophy is mostly visible. Its full-beam lounge with fire pit is put in direct connection with the surrounding environment through the glazed transom door and the side (port and starboard) opening terraces, also enriched by a large bar and a ‘Nemo’ window, provided with a glass that descends below the waterline. Furthermore the indoor and the outdoor parts of the Beach Club are directly interconnected: guests can walk to the outdoor area of the Beach Club through the glazed door or through the side terraces which opens to port and starboard to form a walkway which runs all around the stern.

A real innovation is the patent-pending system for part of the above mentioned walkway and the fold-down bulwarks, which can transform the sea level aft deck into 117 sq. m., 270° view spectacular terrace. Integrated into the stern platform is a sea-water swimming pool that is ideal for children or guests who seek sheltered alternatives to open-water bathing. The pool design features a hydraulic mechanism for raising the teak bottom that closes flush with the deck when the pool is not in use. Adjacent to the indoor Beach Club area, and just forward of it, a Spa and wellness area features hamman, sauna, emotional shower and changing room.

The upper deck is dedicated to the owner’s accommodation. With direct access from the helipad and private foredeck (including a protected ‘infinity nest’ in the extreme bow), the 87-sqm master suite is wrapped in full-height glass windows on three sides and features a large skylight in the deck head to admit even more natural light.

An owner/guest lounge overlooks the open aft deck with freestanding deck furniture and is directly, almost seamlessly connected to an outdoor dining table for a full complement of 12 guests, profiting of a striking aerial/overhead view.

A further key feature is the spectacular circular staircase wrapping the central lift which connects all decks from lower deck to sun deck. Propulsion is diesel-electric with fixed drive shafts. The package offers reduced noise and vibration along with the added flexibility and redundancy of multiple generators. Two electric motors (1500kW @1800rpm) are mounted on the drive shafts that can be powered by a combination of 5 diesel generators (3 x 1000 kWe and 2 x 500 kWe), providing a top speed of 16 knots and a range at economical speed in excess of 6,000nm.
