The RSY 85M new construction project comes to you with almost 100 years of shipbuilding experience with the goal of traveling the worlds oceans not only in complete comfort but with the ability to explore & enjoy her. The 85M is able to carry tenders, toys, and a helicopter to assure you not only enjoy the surface of the ocean but from above & below. 

The RSY 85M is a completely bespoke design and can be customized at the individuals request. This is one reason why we have incorporated the tenders to be located midship or all the way aft and at the same time the helicopter deck to move accordingly. 

Personally speaking this is the ultimate explorer yacht with her plumb bow, azipod propulsion systems, owners deck and abundance of toys. She can remain autonomous at sea for a significant amount of time which is the whole purpose of being a true expedition yacht.It is based on a proven 85 meter commercial platform which we have included two pictures of handling blue water to give you an idea of the true capability this project has. 

We have included general arrangements both for the aft or midship layout of the helicopter deck. Personally speaking a feel the aft layout balances the design and maximizes the comfort of guests onboard as well as operations for the crew.

Options are endless in what can be carried onboard. From submersibles, to off road vehicles, heli ops, rugged tenders for beach/ice landings. The list goes on. To be adventure is all about the vision of the owner and can be left up to the imagination. The RSY 85M can take you to any destination in the world safely and comfortably. Where will you chose to explore first?

Yacht Designer Overview

Tommaso Spadolini comes from a long line of architects and his father, Pierluigi, was one of the first to take an industrial design course at university in Italy over 40 years ago. He designed the first modern motoryacht—the Akhir line by Cantieri di Pisa, which still bears the original exterior design.

Spadolini started designing yachts under his father’s supervision and has worked on more than 200 yachts over the past 30 years. Design Studio Spadolini is committed to developing solutions with the highest attention to detail and technical innovation, while also keeping an eye on the environment to deliver distinctive, ‘green’, successful projects. 

Design Studio Spadolini has an experienced team with one objective — to create a client’s dream. This, together with our comprehensive project management skills, guarantees every aspect of the design process and results in a build that the client and the studio will be proud of.

We follow all the numerous stages of development and oversee the work in progress, applying strict quality control. Years of experience has given us the knowledge needed to help guide our clients with complex projects to ensure they go smoothly and, ultimately, are enjoyable.
