Fiart, the shipyard born from the genius of Ruggiero di Luggo, brought its nautical jewels to the Cannes Yachting Festival and the 61st Genoa Boat Show. On stage we saw its beautiful, brand-new Seawalker 35 and Seawalker 39, plus talk of the Seawalker 43. The great opportunity then was undoubtedly the sea trials for owners. At the same time Fiart, in the VIP club in Cannes, introduced to the press the launch of its new project: the P54.
In Cannes, we also saw the Cetera 60, a 19-meter multispace yacht designed by Francesco Guida and created by Fiart’s young parallel brand, Cetera. The Cetera 60 returned to the boat shows after her premiere at the Genoa Boat Show last year, when she was launched in an unfortunately very difficult climate due to the pandemic. This motor yacht is equipped with an openable flybridge housing the galley and the helm station. She boasts a total of 146 square metres of liveability on board. Three cabins include the owner’s cabin with room service, as well as the VIP room. There’s also a cabin with twin beds for guests. The crew below deck can take advantage of a further room with toilet. On the main deck, the space is internally divided into salon overlooking the sea thanks to the transparency of the vertical glazing that characterizes the yacht, giving it a light reflection even on the opaque surfaces. The boat extends from the bow, equipped at the tip of a bow fitting from which to drop the anchor. The boat connects to the stern cockpit through generous side-decks secured by high stainless steel handrails. The Cetera 60 has a top speed of 28 knots.
Fiart Seawalker 39
The Seawalker 39 is “an object of desire”, perhaps because its sinuous lines make it so appealing. Or because its design is so modern than even sounds futuristic. The Seawalker 39 is the worthy heir to a successful range launched in 2013 with the Seawalker 33, which was then followed by to other models exhibited at the Cannes and Genoa boat shows: the Seawalker 35 and 43. The designer of the Seawalker 39, Massimo Simeone, has undoubtedly created a safe and sturdy boat, equipped with ultra-modern stern drives and stainless steel thrusters. A boat that does not cavitate and has a bow high enough to prevent water splashing even in the most demanding turns.
The Seawalker 39 (12.60 m) is a walkaround with a sporty character outlined by the dark moustache that marks the two sides of the hull. With the deckhouse flattened out at the bow, where two people can comfortable sit on the sundeck, Seawalker 39 hides a combination of open, full, single-volume spaces below deck that are no more than two metres high, and that’s a lot. Sleeping area in the bow: the dinette is under the bridge, which in turn has two armchairs topped by a transparent but darkened T-top. The head is large and comfortable, and the shower cubicle extends into its exclusive location. The Fiart dream becomes reality for 310 thousand euro, VAT excluded.
Launched on July 26th with the honours (and rightly so) of an almost Hollywood-style celebratory event, the Seawalker 39 flaunts a vacuum-infused sandwich structure on the outside. With a beam of 3.86 meters, the boat can be configured inside with two or four berths.
An outboard version is expected to be launched, which will also be more affordable “for everyone”. But for now, the boat is propelled by inboard petrol engines. Altenatively, Fiart also offers 5 diesel options, all Volvo Penta, ranging from 270 to 440HP.
Seawalker 35: Fiart’s highly anticipated model
With an overall length of 11.52 meters, the Seawalker 35 was the walkaround that was eagerly awaited at the boat shows and aroused a great deal of curiosity. Designer Massimo Simeone assures that this is a boat “capable of offering emotions”, describing the qualities of a craft that is about to become “a worthy, fast and funny companion for adventures” and, above all, for sea trips and “great escapes“, all safely tackled. Only the renderings of the Fiart 35 have been unveiled to the public, representing the absolute premiere for the Baia-based shipyard. Seawalker 35 is be fitted with outboard engines capable of delivering up to 35/40 knots. Livability is for a weekend mini-cruise. The Seawalker has an open-plan cabin with a double bed in the bow. Below deck, in line with the helm station, there are two more single beds.
Fiart Seawalker 43: always beautiful
If the Mediterranean demands a boat for itself, this is the Seawalker 43. A walkaround deck, almost 14 metes in length and a beam of 4 represent a marvel of nautical beauty that draws the owner to the sea as much as a lighthouse to the land. Launched in 2020, the Seawalker 43 expresses herself on the water with the sharp shapes of the large beach area at the stern where the craft rises up into a cockpit free of physical obstacles. Generous space up to the bridge with three seats looking forward, protected by a border windscreen over the instruments. T-top optional but equipped with a curtain pulled up to the stern.
Below deck, the sleeping area consists of two comfortable cabins with headroom up to 1.80 meters, twin beds, shared head and separate shower. The Volvo Penta engines deliver between 36 and 42 knots. The hear a new Seawalker 43 roar on the water, you need EUR 450,000, value-added tax excluded.
