This elegant catamaran passed before my eyes, which clearly reflects the influence of that great genius that was Sergio Pininfarina. A boat designed for free time in the utmost luxury, while also providing discreet spaces to stay on the sidelines.
This blog is published in 10 different languages, but I know that whatever language you read it in, Pininfarina will be a name you have already heard. The Italian design house Pininfarina is known for pushing the limits of creativity and innovation in a variety of fields, first and foremost the automotive one. The dream does not live on cars alone, however, and therefore the Turin-based company has achieved its fair share of yacht design.
Today the automotive designer Samuele Errico Piccarini and the design studio C-Yacht have joined forces to offer a Pininfarina-branded yacht to influential and demanding customers. In this specific case, the client is the 45-year-old Ryu Cardoso, founder of a textile company in Japan. The goal, as mentioned, was very clear: to design a boat that would satisfy the needs of worldliness and even solitary yoga of the client tycoon.

The result of the creative efforts is Capitolo, a Pininfarina catamaran inspired by the SEVENTY 7 catamaran and the Sunreef 80 leisure sailing yacht. Chapter takes the best of both these incredible boats to astound with its radical and futuristic design. In short: on the sides and on the bow the boat is transparent. From up there you can see the sea as if you were literally gliding over the water.
In panavision. On the deck of the multihull you can sunbathe, have a barbecue, or relax in the Jacuzzi.
The interior is a grand and bright open space. The light comes from every direction, and the feeling is always that of dominating the space. I am not a sea dog, but when I see this or other crazy boats (I have talked about it several times) I would really like to live always in navigation.
Pininfarina Capitolo is an example of how an idea and a clean design can “attack” any object, mobile or immobile, and clearly convey a philosophy.
