The concepts of vertical repositioning and multi-space arrangement provide more usable areas, maximised living and cost-efficiency

The upcoming Cetera 60 assigns new spaces for guest, crew and technical areas and is designed to enhance comfort and efficiency.

With its revolutionary “vertical repositioning” of the general arrangement and a generous beam of 5.48m, the Cetera 60 offers 146 sqm of usable floor space, affording approximately an extra 30 sqm compared to other flybridge designs of similar size. The result is an innovative layout that maximises interior and exterior spaces, offering a radically different lifestyle experience as well as providing cost-efficient production.

The new multi-space arrangement of the cabins has expanded up to the maximum beam on one easily accessible level on the main deck, leaving the lower deck space available for different functions and also gaining more deck space for the interior lounge and exterior living areas, which include both a forward cockpit and an aft cockpit.

The extremely efficient interior layout provides premium positioning amidships for three comfortable, airy and light-filled guest cabins with three bathrooms, maximising privacy and comfort. Large windows throughout enhance the airy ambience and interaction between interiors and exteriors, a feature of land-based architecture.

The vertical repositioning process also leaves space for a dedicated deck for the crew and technical areas, which Cetera refers to as the “technical deck” – a common enough solution on megayachts, but unheard of on a 60-footer.

The assignment of decks to specific functions in order to optimise the use of each space provides an incredible result in terms of space efficiency and quality of life on board. This radical reorganisation of available space from bow to stern results in what Cetera refers to as “stretched liveability”. Moreover, as all the guests areas aboard the Cetera 60 are as far removed from the engine room as possible, noise and vibration levels are minimised.

Whereas other yachts in her category typically offer a choice between crew cabins or laundry or tender garage on the lower deck, Cetera 60 has all three. The technical deck covers the entire length of the vessel. The forward portion, where ceiling height reaches 2m in height, has been entirely assigned to the crew accommodation offering a total area of 14 sqm. When compared to other flybridge designs of similar size, Cetera has an extra 17.5 sqm of technical space and an extra 8 sqm of crew accommodation.

The space dedicated to the technical areas aboard the Cetera 60 is roughly equivalent to the cabin space, which is unusual on a yacht of this size. More technical space provides easier access for maintenance and means the generator can be installed as far away from guest areas as possible. Achieving these results without sacrificing the guest cabins is possible due to the fact that the Cetera 60 has an enclosed upper deck fully equipped with galley and dining area instead of an open flybridge.

By combining the advantages of a traditional navetta, a long-range trawler and a flybridge cruiser, the Cetera 60 targets owners with young families and children as well as older owners and others that value comfort.

The first Cetera 60 is in build and soon to be transferred to the Fiart facility in Baia, Italy, for assembly and outfitting. She will make her international debut in September during the 2019 boat show season.
