Nauta Design chose the 70-metre platform, a size that after the experience of Light 80 and Light 90, respectively 80 and 90 metres, and the largest yacht in the world mega yacht Project Azzam, 180 metres, recently launched at Lürssen, could be considered “medium-small”. Actually it is a size large enough to develop all the concepts that were instilled in the two slightly larger Light projects: extraordinary outdoor spaces, breath-taking views from both inside and out, balance and cleanliness of lines, seamless inside/outside connection and harmony. The blending of these key elements combines elegance and visual lightness that is the essence of the Nauta design style.

The opening transom has folding stairs for easy access to the water, and two side-opening terraces further enhance the contact with the sea and the environment.

This huge and comfortable use of the vast aft area has made possible thanks to the movement of the garage amid ship, where are located two 30’ footer tenders, which can be launched through two gull wing doors, with the help of a sliding crane.

Two convenient boarding lobbies are positioned amidships to port and starboard, just forward the garage door, where guests and crew can board tenders without disturbing the guest bathing area aft.

On the upper deck of the 72m Benetti – Nauta EDGE 72 yacht there is the ample owner’s suite of 102 sq. m., that forward of the sleeping room has an observation lounge, sweeping 270º forward view through no less than 20 sq. m. of glass. The suite opens directly to the private 105 sq. m. terrace with a flush pool on the fore deck, the very private wellness area reserved to the owner, well protected by the bulwark and in a secluded part of the yacht.

Aft on the upper deck, panoramic outdoor and indoor lounges allow breath-taking views over the seascape and offer more intimate spaces for meetings and conversation.

One deck above, the pilothouse guarantees that the Captain has the best visibility.

All paths of work on board of 72m Nauta EDGE 72 superyacht concept and their ergonomics are carefully studied so that guests and crew have reciprocal privacy, with separate and independent areas that respect the differences in use that they will make of spaces aboard. Also boarding from tenders, the crew can use the efficient boarding lobby located on port side of the staircase trunk on the lower deck.

The effort of Nauta Design has been to match its own conception of a megayacht with the enlightened relationship between exterior and interior,and its “light” philosophy in the double meaning of lightness and brightness, with some Benetti elements, in order to reinterpret in a Nauta key the extraordinary 140-year history of the Viareggio yard.

The architectural element we found is the central leaned forward sort of fashion plate, dividing the wide-bodied volume of the front half hull from the aft half. This element is continuing on the upper deck edge, forming the wing dashboard for the helm station, and underlining this inclined line that cut into two ideal parts the yacht, once again making “lighter” the view of a four-decker yacht.

Benetti Nauta luxury yacht Edge 72 is a yacht that meets and exceeds the expectations for beauty, comfort and efficiency of today’s superyacht owner not by imposing itself of the surrounding environment, but by blending into it and enveloping owners and guests in the beauty and serenity that they have sought out.

The Benetti Nauta Edge 72 yacht’s interior styling has been developed in co-operation with Standby/MarijanaRadovic studio that has interpreted the spirit and the “light” philosophy of Nauta Design by creating a space which is open to light and outside environment. Marijana’s aim was to design an elegant and sophisticated interior,but maintaining at the same time the elements of simplicity.

The interior has been segmented by an innovative use of sliding panels to create flexible spaces, which are easily adaptable to different needs and moods. These divisions are designed and structured to give a feeling of intimacy without excessively fragmenting the space and sacrificing the luxury of space.

The light comes into the interior from all sides by using reflective materials and their combinations and prisms, making natural light a dominant element of the interior. The light is then moderated by special delicate textile roller blinds, fitted to all windows.

The choice of materials is focused on natural, untreated wood and pleasant fabrics with leather details. The primary colours are neutral beige and brown with teal blue accenting, which acts as a reminder of the outside environment and further reinforces the connection between interior and exterior spaces. The decoration is further accented with custom paintwork on moving panels, which create a feel of sophistication. Nature is moreover invited into the interior by using enclosed plants in a sort of “indoor garden” with prisms on top, which channel natural light to them.
