Yacht A project by Nuvolari Lenard
With a three rotating mast structure, similar to the Maltese Falcon, Project Solar is expected to be delivered within the first quarter of this year.
A spa pool aft of the main deck and a large hot tub aft of the upper deck are amongst the key known features on the 106-meter yacht.
Two tenders are further located on the bow of the yacht with covers placed on top of them. Aft of the yacht is a fold-down platform that likely leads to a beach club.
Featuring a steel hull and alluminium superstructure, Project Solar boasts 6 cabins for a total of 12 guests across 2,700GT of interior volume.
The yacht will be powered by twin Caterpillar engines giving her a maximum speed of 17.5 knots. ■
