The Italian superyacht brand CENTOUNONAVI® has unveiled a new concept yacht that is sure to turn heads when cruising on the sea. The 40-meter (131-foot) ETEREA is a sleek and powerful vessel that is designed to provide guests with an unparalleled cruising experience that connects them with the sea more than ever before.
“In designing ETEREA, we set ourselves two precise objectives: to have a very clear-cut profile and to guarantee guests on board enjoy close contact with the sea,” says designer and entrepreneur Manuela Lucchesi.
ETEREA is powered by four MTU 16V2000 M96L engines that are connected to MJP 550 DRB water jets. This combination of power and propulsion systems gives the yacht a top speed of 58 knots and a cruising speed of 48 knots. ETEREA also has a range of over 500 nautical miles, making it the perfect yacht for long-range cruising.
In addition to its impressive performance, ETEREA is also a beautifully designed yacht. The exterior of the yacht was penned by naval architect Marco Arnaboldi, who has a long history of designing award-winning superyachts. The interior of the yacht was designed by the Milan-based studio Grandi Architetture & Partners, and it features a luxurious and contemporary style.
“So we thought of a large aft space almost at water level with foldable bulwarks,” continues Arnaboldi. “There is room here to store numerous toys, a tender up to 9 m in length but, as specifically requested by an American owner, there’s even space to set up a pickleball court! Particular care was then dedicated to making the fly and antennas be in harmony with the profile of the yacht.”
ETEREA is the first of a new line of superyachts from CENTOUNONAVI®. The company plans to build a limited number of these yachts, and each one will be custom-designed to meet the specific needs of its owner, even if that need is a pickleball court.
