The new 28-meter yacht by Cerri Cantieri navali unleashes every bit of the personality of the Italian designer. Freedom is a true custom yacht, with interiors and exteriors designed and made to measure and a super-performing hull as desired by the owner.
CCN’s (Cerri Cantieri Navali) Freedom is the third unit of their Fuoriserie collection: 100% custom made yachts made to measure for the demanding owners.
The design of Freedom is by Tommaso Spadolini, who developed her along with Roberto Cavalli himself like they did for the previous yacht “RC”.
We are used to Cavalli’s eccentric style, on and off the catwalks. RC was a perfect example: 42 meters painted with an iridescent livery whose color changes according to the direction of the sun rays. A yacht also famous for the lascivous parties, enjoyed by celebrities, which took place on board in the most exclusive places.
This time he wanted a “small” yacht: only 28 meters. It is not made for parties, but for the relaxed holidays of a couple. As radical as Roberto Cavalli is, he initially wanted Freedom to have just one cabin. Then he decided to have a second one for the guests (in addition to the crew space). Let’s discover this unique boat then…
Outside the look is total black. Refined yet aggressive, it is inspired partly by classic motorboats and partly by Batman-like crafts. At the stern, two arches connect the fly and the main deck, as well as framing the cockpit, and become a visual element that characterizes the yacht.
The cockpit is extremely low on water. It is how Roberto Cavalli wanted it. It becomes one with the living area, which features three glazed and fully opening sides. But once closed, the room turns into a comfy and protected space with air conditioning.
Roberto Cavalli loves piloting and he loves speed (he often takes the helm himself). Along with the for a close contact with the sea, he also wanted a very performing means.
Freedom reaches a top speed north of 42 knots. She is powered by three MAN engines with water jets
The sunbathing area with a sofa for two hides the garage for the tender: the three jets left no space fo an aft garage. The tender is 4 meters long.
Freedom’s internal layout is definitely unusual. They clearly state how the boat is a 100% one-off. The focal point of the yacht is the full-beam master cabin on the main deck.
Freedom’s master cabin is like a control room: from here you can directly access both the living-cockpit area and the staircase leading to the flybridge. Through the bow door, on the other hand, a few steps lead to the wheelhouse, which is also connected to the crew quarters.
Room with a sea- and sky- view. The round skylight above the bed is decorated with the Roberto Cavalli crest, while on the sides there’s four large windows.
The galley on the lower deck is huge: there’s an informal corner for the owner’s breakfasts and snacks, but much more. Roberto Cavalli loves to cook and he definitely doesn’t want to feel tight.
Throughout the boat there’s a series of backlit panels with blow-up photos from all over the world. They are shots made by Cavalli, who has traveled the world far and wide.
The decor is all by Roberto Cavalli, who has selected fabrics and finishes, as well as furniture and accessories. His signature is unmistakable: statues, golden details and animalier patterns.
As soon as she’s been introduced in Cannes, Freedom has been awarded as the most avant-garde yacht of the year. Definitely an appropriate prize.
