During the Monaco Yacht Show 2018 started on Wednesday in Montecarlo, Fincantieri Yachts, one of the main players in the field, introduces “Mirage”, its latest 106 meters-mega yacht concept.
The idea behind “Mirage” is a translation of city landscapes, sky scrapers cladded with reflective surfaces, which merge into the environment, creating a big effect of lightness and elegance. “Mirage” is the fruitful collaboration by design and engineering between Fincantieri Yachts and Van Geest Design of Pieter van Geest and Tracey-Jayne Canavaggio, who have a combined 35 years of experience in the design field. With their extensive knowledge of shipyard production, project management and understanding of the owner’s needs, they maintain not only an artistic, but also a practical hands-on approach to design. “Mirage” is the product of an extensive research on glass specifications and capabilities, combined with the shape of the yacht to lead to this unexpected and unique result.
Tracey-Jayne Canavaggio – Van Geests Design studio – stated: “Mirage was designed to bind seemingly opposite and contrary forces being complementary, interconnected, and interdependent. One is to anchor its presence in the landscape, the other is to disappear by reflecting its surroundings”.
Daniele Fanara, Senior Vice President Newbuilding Mega Yacht, commented: “Fincantieri yachts are outstanding quality products: the result of a special synergy between advanced technical, design and construction capabilities. The challenge at the heart of every new project is creating something unique as to concept and execution. We believe that Mirage perfectly fits this goal”.
Fincantieri Yachts established itself on the market as a top player in the designing and building of +70m full custom yachts. Since the company came to the business, it has delivered 134m “Serene” (2011) and 140m “Ocean Victory” (2014), which are clear evidence that the highest quality is the target and a fundamental value of the product independently form the size.
Fincantieri Yachts is able to offer unprecedented levels of design, style and quality. The 230 years of experience gained by Fincantieri in all kind of product, the leadership acquired and the constant transfer of know-how between the different products and markets, allow Fincantieri Yachts to stand out not only for design, but also for reliability and excellence in technology.
