The concept of this 25,60 mt “super open” is a blend of the desire of modern-classical motor yacht with simple and clear spaces with a minimalist elegant design. The chosen materials, light wood for the bulkheads and white pearled for the furniture, leather and light wood for the floors, contribute to a welcoming luminous environment.
A classic Mediterranean line with a modern feel, with no corners or projections. The Continental 80, buil by the Cantieri Navali del Mediterraneo (CNM) combines harmony and class with the acceleration of the best fast cruisers. Reaching safely 46 knots, the craft offers the comfort of a large yacht.
The exclusive floating floor system guarantees zero vibrations. The hard top fully opens electrically. The sitting room is separated from the cockpit by a crystal door. The aeronautical inspired command post provides excellent control. The sleeping area is refined and extremely discrete.
The american life style magazine 'Yacht Charter Magazine' said about this yacht: 'the Continental 80 is a boat designed for those who like to drive and to be distinguished from the crowd of mass-production boats in an understated way – the feel of a custom build of past eras with a modern twist.
The typical charterer – that the Continental will appeal to is a 'wealthy individual' who could probably afford, but does not want to own, a larger yacht and demands top quality and style – perhaps something to use in the summer in conjunction with a holiday home in the West Med.
