ON ACALA’S DESIGN
Horacio Bozzo - Designer
CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL,
CANNES, 7 SEPTEMBER 2022
The aim of our design work is the pleasure of seeing the Owner’s desires taking shape and recognizing himself in it.
ACALA’s exterior lines have been designed by award-winner Horacio Bozzo Design.
“The aim of our design work is the pleasure of seeing the Owner’s desires taking shape and recognizing himself in it,” says Horacio Bozzo, yacht designer and naval architect based in Viareggio, Italy. “Designing an explorer for a super-experienced Owner who grew up around boats and understands yachting perfectly, was very gratifying,” Horacio adds. “We worked closely exchanging ideas and putting together his needs with our experience designing custom yachts”.
Her clean, vaguely severe profile with a raked bow and compact superstructure captures the very soul of an explorer vessel combining it with the elegance of a luxury yacht that will stand the test of time. All shapes, volumes and lines compose a harmonious geometry while her roomy body encompasses luxury social areas and very large and comfortable crew quarters, as requested by the Owner whose plans include long term cruising to reach the farthest corners of the world. Guest areas are spread over three decks plus a Sun Deck. Acala features a nicely organized interior layout with twelve guests accommodated in six suites, four on the Main Deck and two on the Lower Deck. A cozy saloon on the Main Deck and a large panoramic sky lounge on the Upper Deck are at guests disposal to relax in comfortable and bright environments. A huge cockpit features all amenities including a large swimming pool and lots of space to relax.
We have found in CDM a team of talented professionals intended to build quality and always open to new solutions, a must when building a custom yacht.
