Created by an impressive all Italian team for an exacting owner

The elegant and fully custom 70m motor yacht Numptia has now been delivered from the Rossinavi Shipyard in Italy to an experienced owner who specified a yacht to an exacting brief with top levels of workmanship from all those involved in the project.  The team for the build and engineering, Rossinavi Shipyard, Viareggio; naval architecture by Axis Group Yacht Design; exterior design by Design Studio Spadolini, Florence; interior design by Salvagni Architetti, Rome – an all Italian line up.

The skills, talent, flair and uniqueness of this Italian team is evident throughout Numptia and in particular in the unconventional layout of the spaces spanning five decks, which ultimately translates into the full experience of delivering a spectacular home on the water for the owner and a rare vehicle for those lucky enough to charter her.

The yacht echoes timeless elegance from several eras with some deliciously eccentric twists and a unique take on deck spaces.

Throughout the yacht woods have been used to achieve an attractive contrast between dark and light elements, from deep ebony to subtly bleached teak, the use of marble, stone, bronze and natural fabrics all contribute to create a welcoming atmosphere where the natural provenance of the materials is foremost.

Numptia is designed over five decks with four guest cabins on the lower deck which is served by an amidships circular glass elevator to all decks, apart from the sundeck. 

On the main deck forward, approached via a study, is the owner’s full beam suite which is divided into three areas: a reading area, central bedroom and a comfortable dedicated television area. Forward is a stunning central bath and shower complex with his-and-hers dressing rooms and heads. On the main deck aft, the main saloon offers a sublime experience surrounded by floor to ceiling windows giving uninterrupted views out to sea and is separated from the dining room with its stunning alpaca metal table by a fabulous snaking central bar area. A fully kitted out professional galley is located immediately forward of the dining room to port.

Up on the bridge deck is a well executed walkaround bridge with an excellent radio room to starboard and a guest sitting area to port. Aft of the radio room is a good sized VIP guest cabin. The aft area is filled with huge lounging beds for watching television and movies ­with a 103 inch cinema-style Panasonic TV. There is a library area with fireplace and tables for playing cards or computer games, with a comfortable outdoor area aft for relaxing and al fresco dining.

The aptly named spa deck is a unique feature of Numptia. Here guests can take advantage of the sauna, steam room or fully equipped gym with doors leading out to five double-sized custom made sunbeds. Those who prefer to take life a bit easier may prefer the calm atmosphere of the massage room or opt for some pampering in the beauty room. The owner placed extremely high priority on where meals are enjoyed and the practical aspects of food service. With a large fully equipped pantry on each deck, good service is facilitated. A unique outdoor area forward on the spa deck conceived for taking breakfast or light lunches and barbecues is equipped with a glass-topped bar area and two raised circular tables with views overlooking the bow.

The sundeck is totally dedicated to open-air enjoyment. A 4m central infinity pool with hydromassage water fountains is set to pamper you. Up a few steps and away from the fun area is a touch and go helicopter pad with landing lights built in. It can also be turned into an additional sundeck with sun loungers or a party deck with disco lights already fitted and all the electrics installed for a band to play.
