F18 and F16, the new SFG Yacht Design project

Franco Gianni of SFG Yacht Design has unveiled a new exclusive and decidedly "fresh" design of the studio’s new designs: the stunning F18 with a length of 18 meters and engines on board and the smaller F16 with outboard engines.

According to Franco Gianni: "The teak bridge on this boat is a work of art in itself. Using a color scheme to match the boat to a "fishbone" layout gives it a truly Pop touch. I had to be careful not to load the design too much so I thought a couple of key pieces would be perfect to fully characterize the ship. The aft table and dashboard are carefully designed not only to be magnificent to the eye but to be extremely functional. The dashboard is a single piece of double-curved glass with a giant custom and multipurpose navigation screen hidden."

In addition, Franco added: "Instead of building a lightweight super-light carbon fibre boat as many shipyards would have done, I opted for a heavier hull with carbon and Kevlar reinforcements, then building the bridge and all the carbon components to keep the center of gravity low and to improve maintenance capabilities at sea. I want this boat to be a real offshore car, not an 18-metre featherweight."

The F18 has two MAN 1900 12-cylinder 1,900 hp engines each connected to the surface units. The engine type meets TIER III regulations. The younger sister, on the other hand, is powered by Seven Marine’s four 627 hp outboard engines.
