Fort Lauderdale, FL, October 31st 2019 – On the occasion of the 60th edition of Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Italian shipyard Rossinavi once again joins forces with leading global design firm Pininfarina to present Super Sport 65, a new super yacht concept.
Taking inspiration from high performance sports cars and integrated tell-tale fluidity of Pininfarina’s iconic style, Super Sport 65 is a nod to Aurea, the brand’s first collaboration with Rossinavi introduced in 2017, and will focus on a project that connects the bow to the stern with a single line, dressing it with incredibly captivating and sporting features.
Made entirely in aluminium, Super Sport 65 has an overall length of 65.50m, a maximum beam of 11m and a draft of 2.20m for easy access to those bays and ports that otherwise would not be able to accommodate a boat of such stature. Super Sport 65’s design is characterized by wide open spaces and includes six cabins to host at least twelve guests in addition to the seven cabins reserved to the captain and crew members.
The automotive reference to Pininfarina's world-famous Gran Turismo is evident in the upper-deck which echoes the design and proportion of such sports cars while still guaranteeing large spaces for outdoor entertainment featuring several lounge areas. These are all bespoke and arranged over various decks but also including two Jacuzzis, one at each edge of the boat.
The sinuous design of the main staircase is inspired by the air intakes of the most performing road vehicles and merges organically into the floor to ceiling windows. A hot tub and a custom made spacious sofa at the stern warmly welcome the guest on board this majestic jewel of the sea.
"The only limit in the design of sports boat is the impact on the general floorplan. For this reason, creating a nice balance between interior architecture and exterior design is always challenging. With Super Sport 65 we have overcome this limit. We enter a new design dimension with the lower deck’s layout to the large areas dedicated to the crew and to the captain’s cockpit and engine room. The elegant and spacious design of the common areas including the main saloon and a larger owner’s cabin at bow all the way to the salon of the upper deck are the result of this new design direction which culminates in the flying bridge with Pininfarina's signature super car design". Federico Rossi, COO of Rossinavi.
"Pininfarina and Rossinavi speak the same language and share the same passion and values. Leveraging on this common background and vision, Pininfarina is in the best position to express its creativity, taking inspiration from our sports cars and translating their sleek and fast lines into the design of a super yacht. The result is innovative, a pure synthesis of elegance and sportiness.” explains Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of the Group.
Pininfarina’s deep knowledge of elegance and innovation in both interior and exterior design allows the new Super Sport 65 to offer a highly enjoyable and voluminous environment, combining at the same time a dynamic and sleek style with all the essential comforts for an exclusive navigation experience.

Rossinavi's journey to becoming one of the world’s foremost custom superyacht builders started in the Tuscan town of Viareggio in the 1970s. Founded by brothers Claudio and Paride Rossi, they began their careers as metalworkers, expertly forming the hulls of fishing boats in steel and aluminum. Under the banner of Cantiere Navale Rossi, they quickly cemented their reputations within the industry as capable of producing at the highest level of quality and professionalism. Throughout the 1990s the family-run company worked as a supplier to the luxury yacht sector, building up their knowledge and mastery of their craft until 2007 when the Rossinavi brand was officially born. Finally building superyachts under their own name, Rossinavi quickly excelled. Today, after launching numerous luxury yachts from 40-70 metres in length, and with several currently in production, the shipyard enjoys its ongoing position as the only family-owned-and-operated superyacht company in Italy. Working with Tuscany’s finest materials and artisans, all of Rossinavi’s construction is completed in-house and more than half of the craftsmanship that goes into making our custom yachts is done exclusively by hand. An unrivalled level of quality is the defining characteristic of a Rossinavi yacht — and so it will remain for generations to come.
