Fincantieri reveals Griffin series


Famous Italian yard Fincantieri, reputed in the superyacht industry for having built iconic 100m+ superyachts like OCEAN VICTORY (140m) or SERENE (134m), revealed during the last 2018 Singapore Yacht Show the first details of a new collection of motor yachts, the GRIFFIN series, which will be available in 66-metre, 77-metre, 88-metre and 99-metre versions. The smallest of the range, the Griffin 66 was developed in collaboration with Christopher Seymour Designs, Castleman International and Guido De Groot Design. This 66m concept briefly revealed with renderings will feature flowing exterior lines, a trio of superyacht spa pools and a foredeck helipad. Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split across six cabins, while the crew quarters accommodate up to 15 people on-board. Vital statistics include a 12.3-metre beam, a maximum draught of 3.8 metres and a total interior volume of 1,575GT. The engine installation has yet to be disclosed, but the hull has been designed around a top speed of 17 knots and the tender garage is large enough to house an eight-metre RIB. Fincantieri added that the GRIFFIN range is being developed by a dedicated in-house team with the aim of demonstrating that the yard, while being Italy's largest shipbuilder, is not exclusively focused on yachts over 100 metres when it comes to building superyachts. Further details are being kept under wraps until the full reveal during the Versilia Yachting Rendezvous (10–13 May).
