PHOTO This long? You can’t frame it all! Tronchetti Provera’s 44 meters.

“Too long.” This is the comment of our contact, who sent us the first sailing photo of the new Kauris IV, the 145-footer (44 meters) that, designed by German Frers, the Persico Marine shipyard-a pillar of the Italian and international hi-tech avant-garde-has built in its Marina di Carrara plant for Pirelli Ceo Marco Tronchetti Provera.

How can you blame him: so long it doesn’t fit in the lens of a smartphone! But beautiful!

Below we had “paparazzied” the boat in the dockyard at Marina di Carrara’s east pier:

The 44-footer flies the Italian flag and the pennant of the Yacht Club Italiano, of which Tronchetti Provera is a historic member. On deck, the layout features a deck saloon and cockpit on the same level. The absolute novelty is the lowered aft cockpit reserved for owners (to enjoy contact with the sea in total privacy), a true megayacht feature.

The lines betray Frers’ hand, all in all classic (and elegant) and with forehand and transom not overly “vertical.” The Southern Spars mast, as we have already told you, is as long as three tennis courts, and the boom, judging from the photo, is no joke either!
