Pininfarina and Ficantieri unveil ‘Ottantacinque’ mega yacht

The result of a collaboration between design studio Pininfarina and ship-builder Ficantieri, the Ottantacinque mega-yacht unveiled this week at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show is 85 meters long, weighs 2460 tons, boasts 5 decks and 2 swimming pools.

For Pininfarina, the project was all about the technology of beauty and distilling its understanding of the super rich in a way where simplicity and cleanliness always trumps complication and obvious design.

“The result is a sculptural floating home with elegant and dynamic areas, where style meets function, aerodynamics, on-board comfort, ergonomics. Every detail is designed to harmonize with the aesthetic theme of the yacht,” said Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of the Pininfarina Group.
