50m Aluminium (hybrid)

Silence & comfort

Home is all about fuel efficiency and comfort. Her lightweight aluminium hull form offers superlative performance and efficiency in a luxurious design package of under 500GT. Add a striking superstructure, vertical bow and spacious aft platform with a wide staircase leading to the main deck and we believe this yacht is a cut above others in her class.

First impressions

The exterior of Home is designed by Omega Architects and it’s our first yacht with hybrid propulsion. In this case ‘Hybrid’ means that the yacht can draw on two sources of power for propulsion: diesel mechanical and diesel electrical. Either or both sources can be used at the same time. This provides less noise and vibration, a more flexible power management which means better efficiency.

Step aboard

The brief to Cristiano Gatto with regard to the interior styling was to provide a relaxed and welcoming beach club ambience with ample connection to the outside environment. To achieve this objective, Cristiano and his team have drawn on natural materials with minimal artificial treatments and taken full advantage of the full-height glass windows.
