Mariotti Yachts Project "GEO"

Italian shipyard Mariotti Yachts, has combined its heritage, knowledge and skills to create the GEO project, a 55m (180ft) expedition style Superyacht with strong muscular lines that are combined with a modern Italian style to give us this modern day explorer. President of Mariotti Yachts Marco Bisango was quoted saying that,

“GEO is a world first, breaking new boundaries in every respect. With the unrivalled build quality of an ocean-going cruise ship capable of carrying 12 guests at a cruising speed of 14 knots, and a design that beautifully captures the spirit of an explorer vessel, GEO is the ultimate fusion of form and function.”

The interior and exterior was designed by Luca Dini, with the interior having a contemporary style using high-quality, traditional materials. Oak and light-lacquered wood creates fine detailing on the walls, while sumptuous floorings and a luxurious blend of wengé furniture transforms the saloon into a modern sanctuary.

One of the yachts main features is the innovative design of the indoor- outdoor area on the upper deck that has never been seen before on a Superyacht. The 22-metre long flybridge is generously covered with a high-performance aluminium roof and features electric sliding windows to create a seamless transformation.

GEO will be able to accommodate 12 guests that include 3 double cabins and 2 twin cabins forward on the main deck and then the owners suite which is located aft of the bridge. She will have a crew of 13 and a maximum speed of 16kts with a range of 5,000nm while at a cruising speed of 14kts.
