Centouno Navi - The new all-Italian brand creates superyachts capable of 58+ knots

by Centouno Navi 6 May 01:09 PDT

Centouno Navi is a new Made-in-Italy superyacht brand set up by designer and entrepeneur Manuela Lucchesi that draws on Naval Architect Ing. Marco Arnaboldi's former experience as founder and director of AB Yachts, which he created in 1992 to apply cutting-edge waterjet technology and sandwich composite construction to fast planing yachts.

  • Two new superyacht models capable of 58+ knots
  • Hybrid carbon composite construction
  • Efficient MJP waterjet propulsion
  • Folding bulwarks for larger aft deck
  • Custom interior design and layout options

Based in Viareggio, the inspiration behind the new-generation line of Centouno Navi yachts is twofold: uncompromising performance and the "beauty of nature". The former is achieved by waterjet propulsion and both debut models are capable of speeds in excess of 58 knots; the latter is derived from studying the grace and efficiency of marine animals.

The advantages of waterjet propulsion over conventional drive shafts and props are well known: higher speed, faster acceleration, shallow water capability, greater manovrability, less noise and vibration, as well as lower maintenance and longer engine life.

To make the most of these advantages, the hull structure has to be rigid and robust, but also very light. So Centouno Navi will build its new superyacht models using carbon and glass fibre in a hybrid sandwich with vinylster resin and PVC foam core for optimal mechanical characteristics. Capable of speeds in excess of 58 knots, at high speed they are vibration-free and highly efficient. Both models will have custom interior design and layout options.

Centouno Forza

At 28m in length, the FORZA is fitted with triple MAN 12V 2000hp coupled to three MJP 450 waterjets for a top speed of 60 knots. With 7,000 litres of fuel in the tank, at a cruising speed of 50 knots she has an exceptional range of 500nm.

The yacht's profile is dynamic and powerful with a low-slung superstructure, open transom and elongated bow. The terraced aft deck features a fixed swim platform, a large sunbed (with room for stowing a tender underneath) and fold-down bulwarks to increase the deck area and contact with the sea. There is another wide sunbed on the foredeck.

Centouno Eterea

The 39-metre Eterea is the big sister of the FORZA and a full tri-deck superyacht. Her hybrid carbon composite construction is identical, but she is fitted with four MTU engines of 2,600hp each coupled to MJP waterjets for a top speed of 58 knots and a cruising speed of 50 knots.

Like the FORZA, the Eterea has the same trademark fold-down bulwarks in the stern. There is also the option of sunbed arrangement in the bow with an integrated Jacuzzi and room underneath for a crew tender. The large open cockpit provides plenty of room for stowing a guest tender or chase boat on deck.

"Marco and I are people of the sea", says Manuela Lucchesi. "We've known each other since childhood and spent our whole lives in Viareggio. I can't really comprehend not being able to hear the sea outside my window. So along with Marco's 30 years in the yachtbuilding industry and my flair for design, the soul of the sea lies at the heart of CENTUNO."
