Zuccon presents the PY HERITAGE 45 M, a tribute to Gerhard Gilgenast by Picchiotti Yachts


– PY Heritage is a 45 m motor yacht with an exclusive design by Zuccon International Project for Picchiotti Yachts

– PY Heritage is the first project undertaken by Zuccon for Picchiotti Yachts

– PY Heritage is a 45 m dual function motoryacht, which can be used both as a classic expedition yacht and as a support vessel for Perini Navi superyachts

– PY Heritage pays tribute to the most important designer who has worked with Picchiotti, Gerhard Gilgenast, embracing his characteristic style, but interpreting it from a contemporary perspective

– PY Heritage can carry a 9-meter tender and a sailing boat of the same length in the bow area of the main deck, plus two jet skis. Launching the tenders frees up this space, which becomes a vast lounge area.

– PY Heritage has extremely generous interior volumes, with some unusual design features (e.g. three meters of height clearance throughout the main deck).

 – PY Heritage 45 M is a concept project that Picchiotti is presenting to its customers.

Seven new models under construction for Zuccon International Projects, plus two new projects


2016 promises to be an exciting year for Zuccon International Project: four new vessels designed by the Roman Study are currently being built by Ferretti Group : two by Ferretti Yachts, two by Custom Line and the other three by CRN shipyard in Ancona for which Zuccon’s architects have also developed two new projects for a 50-meter yacht.


    1. Ferretti 450
    2. Ferretti 850
    3. Custom Line Navetta 37
    4. Custom Line Navetta 42
    5. CRN 50 m Superconero
    6. CRN 74 m
    7. CRN 79 m
    8. CRN 50 m Expedition (new project)
    9. CRN 50 m Dislopen (new project)

Zuccon Study has been commissioned to redesign Ferretti Yachts’ entire range, over a period of 3 years. The first models presented cover a wide range: the first one will be the entry level, the Ferretti 450, while the second is the Ferretti 850, a 26-meter with sporty lines, available in two different versions; both currently under construction, they will be presented at the 2016 Yachting Cannes Festival.


An increase in size for the projects presented with Custom Line, the Ferretti Group brand dedicated to fiberglass semi-custom yachts. In the next few months will be officially presented the Navetta 37, a large displacement vessel, and the ‘older sister’ Navetta 42, the biggest yacht ever built by Custom Line, whose first renderings have just been presented at the Yachts Miami Beach 2016. The launch is expected in 2018; Navetta 42 will be organized on 4 decks, fully customizable, and will offer a wide range of solutions to maximize comfort and well-being of guests on board.


CRN shipyard as well is working on several new units, all steel, that will be launched by 2017. In the next months will be officially launched M/Y CRN 131, a 74-meter displacement yacht, while are currently under construction 2 other superyachts of 79 and 50 meters: M/Y CRN 135 and M/Y CRN Superconero. The latter, together with Expedition 50 and Dislopen 50, is part of a 3 models range developed by Zuccon to introduce a flexible design proposal based, however, on the same platform.


Moreover, in addition to the collaboration with the shipyards, it also continues the research activity carried on by Zuccon Superyacht Design division. Back in January 2016 has been unveiled the latest concept, 94m Teti: a new experimental project that transforms the way external spaces are conceived and lived on board large vessels.


The projects’ eclecticism and variety well represent Zuccon International Project’ ability to innovate, always coming up with new proposals that can answer to several requirements and differ in size, construction materials, types, shapes and functions. A rare ability, if not unique, in the yacht design industry.
