The new Santasevera brand of boats has been created by naval architect and yacht designer Francesco Guida.
So far, the brand consists of three models – 40ft, 46ft and 52ft – with two hulls sold off plan.
The Santasevera 52 measures 15.75m overall and has a 5.05m beam and incorporates a walk-around design in order to maximise the exterior space behind the shelter of the windscreen and hardtop with emphasis on the usability of the boat’s aft deck.
A carbon hardtop covers the cockpit and a U-shaped seating area with a low coffee table that can transform into a dining table.
Below deck, a flared, rounded bow gives maximum volume to the accommodation which consists of a full-beam master cabin with an island bed and ensuite access to a heads and shower room, which is also shared by a twin cabin aft, via a separate door.
A lounge area lies in between.
“Good looks and impeccable proportions are of course important in all design,” says Francesco. “But it’s not just an inspired swish of the draughting pen which makes a successful yacht.
“A wealth of small details can transform performance and elevate life aboard from pleasant to joyous. Features as unremarkable as a well-placed cupboard, a handhold or the ergonomic angle of a headrest can make all the difference. This blend of aesthetics and pragmatism is what distinguishes the Santasevera brand.”
The Santasevera 52 can be fitted with a choice of three different propulsion systems: shaft line or IPS system with inboard engines, or outboard motors and will be capable of speeds up to 30 knots at half load.
The first hull will be launched summer of 2024.
