Filippetti Yacht Shipyard is proud to announce the launch of a new unit of Filippetti Navetta 26, with the interior and exterior décor in collaboration with the Milan studio, Hot Lab yacht & design.

Every Filippetti yacht offers the owner the ability to customize the interior and exterior décor and layout. The result is an increasingly unique and tailor made yacht, where the stylistic choices of the owner combine with the innovative solutions of Filippetti to best meet their needs.

The customer had some very clear ideas about what characteristics he wanted in his boat,” said Giovanni Filippetti, CSO of Filippetti Yacht “together with Hot Lab, we worked closely with him to exceed all of his requests”.


In particular, the owner of the vessel wanted to be able to navigate throughout the year in the Northern Seas. Given that one of the hallmark features of the Filippetti Navetta Series is the abundance of natural light that illuminates the boat through large glass windows, it was critical that this design aspect be maintained. In order to achieve this and ensure comfort in the harshest of climates, special attention was given to the thermal insulation of the windows. This has been done through the use of double glazing, creating an insulated window formed by two separate pieces of glass combined with a gas filled space to reduce heat loss. Additional insulation with anti-vibration technology has also been used in the walls to ensure maximum comfort and quiet operation, even during night cruises. For comfort and additional convenience in consideration of the cold temperatures of Northern Europe, a KABOLA oil boiler system was installed to preheat the boat prior to boarding for increased comfort. This system allows the owner to remotely start the heating system through the use of a connected mobile device.

This experienced yachtsman wanted the ability to maneuver the boat without constant assistance of a professional crew. Filippetti has taken a series of measures to ensure that the boat can be handled independently, reducing operating costs and increasing on board privacy. Four remote command locations – two forward and two aft of the main deck, have been installed to facilitate anchorage maneuvers in addition to the main helm on the upper deck. Each station has been equipped with controls and displays required to have full control of the boat.

The long range cruising ability of the Navetta 26 allows it to travel over 3,000 nautical miles without refueling. Combining this with large volumes of available storage on the main deck and fly bridge, the Navetta 26 makes long cruises worry-free and more enjoyable than ever before.

This custom build has allowed us to introduce a new fly deck configuration that will now be available to all Filippetti customers.  New owners can choose between the “open” version of the fly deck, that features a wide terrace with a bar, sundeck and a dining area that can be covered by a canopy, or a ”convertible” version of the fly deck. The CONVERTIBLE version offers a spacious living room perfect for entertaining guests, complete with a kitchen, large bar, and adjustable dining table.  The new closed version features an aft sliding glass door, oversized windows, and a very large retractable sky light located in the center of the living room, making this cozy living room a bright airy space directly connected with the outside.


The layout of this Filippetti Navetta 26 has been completely customized in order to exceed the expectations and requests of the owner. Taking into account that this yacht will be sailing the Northern Seas with cooler temperatures, a number of design elements have been adjusted to make life on board comfortable so the owner can enjoy the pleasure of cruising, even from the inside.

The upper deck houses the full beam wheelhouse, where the captain can safely maneuver the boat with a sweeping view, while the aft features a spacious outdoor area furnished with large sun beds and a dining table. A closed fly deck has been chosen for the configuration of this vessel, outfitted with a sliding door system that allows the space to open up to the outside.

The main deck is the heart of the boat. Off the cockpit, a comfortable outdoor seating area is set up with a coffee table, comfortable chairs, and easy access into the living room that is perfect for watching TV and enjoying good company on the semi-circular sofa. Moving forward is the starboard kitchen and on the left, a convenient bathroom. At the extreme bow, you’ll find an area that is entirely new for boats of this length: the dining room. This area has a spectacular view of the open sea, where you can enjoy a 180-degree view while you dine, thanks to the large windows that wrap around the perimeter of the boat, letting the light stream in from every angle. At the bow is an outdoor area with sofa chairs and two small tables, a perfect oasis to enjoy the pleasure of sailing.

The two sleeping areas in this Navetta, which can be accessed through a staircase located midship on the main deck, and the lower deck have two spacious cabins (Master and VIP) designed to comfortably accommodate four guests. This arrangement has been commissioned by the owner of the boat who decided to decrease the number of cabins on board (configurations typically have been either a 4 or 5 cabin layouts) in favor of more spaces. The expansive full beam master cabin is the owner’s suite providing plenty of private space. In standard configurations of the Navetta, the master suite had been located on the upper mid deck, however, the owner of this vessel has chosen to move the master suite to the lower deck, in order to create a dining room with a panoramic view.  Covering 25 m2, the suite consists of a sleeping area, hallway, and a spacious wardrobe with the addition of a dedicated walk-in closet and en suite bathroom. The large bathroom with an oversized shower has taken the place of an entire guest cabin in the typical configurations. The custom configuration of this space has also allowed the owner room to build a private gym area in the front, complete with professional Technogym fitness equipment and an entertainment system. Completing the cabin area is the VIP cabin with a private bathroom and spacious wardrobe. Both cabins are equipped with large rectangular windows that illuminate the entire room and provide stunning views of the seascape.

Farther aft with access from the main deck and completely separate from the other rooms is crew quarters set up for two people with a bathroom, small kitchen, and direct access to the engine room.

The Filippetti Navetta 26 also has a large garage which can accommodate a jet ski, tender, or other water toys.

The décor on board is a perfect balance between classic and modern, harmoniously incorporating both elegant and contemporary styles, resulting in a stylish and friendly atmosphere. The striking interior uses carefully selected materials and exclusive furnishing. The leathers, lacquered surfaces, and original fabrics in neutral tones combine with the warm characteristics of American walnut, creating a striking color contrast. In the bathrooms, exquisite marble has been chosen, including Eramosa and Navona travertine.

This Navetta 26 is equipped with twin MAN R6 engines 730 hp and features a double stabilization system, a pair of AB TRACK fins and a SEAKEEPER gyroscopic stabilizer to ensure the best results and smooth cruising.
