The Filippetti Navetta 35 is the project that has aroused the greatest interest from our audience. This boat has been designed by the Italian Studio Hot Lab Yacht & Design. Antonio Romano, one of the founders of Hot Lab, tells us about the creation of this project, its remarkable features, and how he expects this project to be welcomed to the market.


What was the inspiration for the Filippetti Navetta 35?

In recent years, the market has changed a lot. There are now many more requests for large boats with low consumption that are also able to guarantee eco-consciousness. These principals inspired the design of the Filippetti Navetta 35, big sister of Filippetti Navetta 36 and Filippetti Navetta 30 that were already built by the shipyard.


How did you meet Fausto and Giovanni Filippetti?

I met both with Giovanni and Fausto in 2009, when we brought the yacht, “Biscuit”, to the shipyard in Mondolfo for completion. We quickly developed a strong friendship and mutual respect – Giovanni and I are the same age and we both believe in a bright future for our companies. The Filippetti Navetta 35 is the first yacht we have designed together, but it certainly will not be the last.


What are the basic features of this boat?

The Filippetti Navetta 35 is characterized by timeless external lines that portray classicism typical of boats of this type, while at the same time incorporating all the desires of the modern market, such as the ability to have a sizeable Beach Club at the stern, large windows, and of course a garage for tenders and toys.  The interior space is open and spacious, with the master suite on the main deck being one of the largest in its category.  Below deck, up to 5 comfortable cabins can be accommodated, or part of the space can be dedicated to a spa area.  The Sky Lounge on the upper deck is wide and crates a unique space with the outdoor stern area. The interior can be completely customized in style and in the layout. All of these features alone are incredible, but when combined into a single yacht, they create a true thing of beauty.


How do you think will be received by the market?

Compared to its direct competitors, the Filippetti Navetta 35 has wider interior spaces and has better exploited the ability to build a totally customized yacht that only a shipyard delivering high quality craftsmanship as Filippetti can guarantee. The elegant exterior lines will win over the the hearts of many fans –  the timeless look is reminiscent of the classic Mediterranean Navetta, with the addition of modern design elements to meet the current demands of the market. The superior build quality, voluminous custom interiors, and elegant design are all elements that the market will certainly appreciate.
