About I NOVA
A dynamic and powerful expedition vessel 5 years in the making, I NOVA is a once-in-a-lifetime superyacht. Built to meet her experienced owner’s exacting standards, this intrepid 49.75m yacht was designed for uncompromising adventure.
Setting the standard for the new generation of expedition yachts, I NOVA’s robust exterior is more than matched by her sophisticated interior. Created by renowned designer Cristiano Gatto to match her owner’s vision of the ultimate explorer yacht, I NOVA has a wealth of onboard amenities.
Delivered in 2013, I NOVA was built by Cosmo Explorer in collaboration with Vripack Naval Architects and Van Oossanen Naval Architects. Her strong profile and clean lines are highlighted by a bespoke lighting system and she boasts many unique features for a yacht of her size.
Capable of exploring even the most remote regions, I NOVA is stable and reliable with remarkably low engine noise and vibration. Her compact size and huge volume enable her to comfortably explore shallow-water cruising grounds around the world.
An award-winning superyacht, I NOVA has been professionally maintained by her experienced owner and privately used since delivery. Fuel efficient with excellent autonomy, this mighty explorer yacht would also make an extremely welcome addition to the global charter market.
An ice-class explorer yacht, I NOVA is equipped with 2 powerful twin MTU 16V 2000 M70 engines. Developed by a Best-in-Class team of contractors, she is fitted with the very latest cutting-edge technology and her 5-year survey was completed in 2018.
Designed for hydrodynamic optimisation, her vertical bow and low centre of gravity ensure smooth sailing in all conditions. Built to go to the ends of the earth, I NOVA has a huge volume of 746GRT plus an impressive range of 5500 nautical miles when cruising.
A real powerhouse vessel, her tough steel hull is reinforced with extra-thick steel plates for polar expeditions. Additionally, her propeller, sea chest, rudder, steering gear and seawater cooling systems all meet ABS DO Ice Class requirements.
Spacious and modern, I NOVA has accommodation for up to 14 guests in 6 luxurious cabins including a stunning split-level owner’s suite.
Light and open with a feel of quiet sophistication, the staterooms pair wood panelling with neutral furnishings and custom-made leather accent pieces.
Accessed by a private lobby, the full-beam owner’s suite is located on the main deck of the yacht. Chic and contemporary, the vast cabin is filled with natural light and opens into a spa-style bathroom and adjoining dressing rooms. A private staircase leads to a large salon/study area on the upper deck with breathtaking views of the ocean.
The guest accommodation is made up of a VIP stateroom on the upper deck plus 2 double and 2 twin cabins on the lower deck. An optimised layout enhances the feeling of space in I NOVA’s private quarters and each of the staterooms has ensuite bathroom facilities.
I NOVA also has a staff lounge/dining room and accommodation for a 12-person crew on the lower deck.
Styled by innovative Italian designer Cristiano Gatto, I NOVA won the 2014 Showboats Design Awards for Best Interior. Subtly stylish with a comfortable modern aesthetic, the main living area is finished with a neutral colour palette. Oversized windows fill the space with natural light and accent the precious wood on display throughout the salon and dining room.
The large open-plan salon is the ideal space to kick back and spend time with the family. A cocktail area with a solid Kauri wood bar opens into the lounge which offers multiple seating areas grouped around a wide-screen TV. The salon leads into I NOVA’s elegant formal dining room which features a magnificent custom-made Karui wood dining table for 12.
On the upper deck, I NOVA has an intimate lounge which can also be used as an entertainment room. Finished in contrasting shades of teak, the upper lounge is equipped with a widescreen TV hidden behind sliding panels plus a large seating area.
The lower deck is set up for onboard relaxation with a large indoor beach club and sauna. Finished in teak, this lounge area offers easy access to the water and can be used as a launch pad for I NOVA’s huge collection of water toys.
Featuring a high freeboard combined with a vertical bow, I NOVA cuts a bold silhouette on the water. Designed by Cristiano Gatto, I NOVA’s exterior is deceptively simple with elegantly tapering decks broken up by striking diagonal elements amidship.
With 5 teak-clad decks plus a tank deck, I NOVA has an extremely functional layout. Spacious and open, she was created to offer the ultimate outdoor living experience in all environments with multiple areas for relaxing and socialising.
On the main deck, the covered cockpit is arranged as a lounge space with built-in seating and access to the beach club below. The upper deck haft houses I NOVA’s collection of toys and tenders. A versatile space, this area can also be turned into a vast dance floor when entertaining.
I NOVA’s bridge deck is home to the wheelhouse plus cabins for the captain and engineer. In addition, a large terrace is the perfect setting for a leisurely meal with friends. Up above, the observation deck boasts a covered outdoor gym with a magnificent view plus a fabulous spa pool overlooking the ocean.
Water Toys and Tenders
I NOVA’s toys and tenders are stored in the upper deck’s vast aft area and hauled by a 5 ton crane with a 9-metre outreach. She is sold with a Fabio Buzzi 34 semi-enclosed rib tender and a Scorpion 8.5 ST rib tender plus a full range of the latest water toys.
