DEPARTURES 76 /100: Cantiere Savona's hybrid day-cruiser, the Luxi 33

Singularly Sardinian
Cantiere Savona's Luxi 33

[DEPARTURES 100] Shown at the Cannes Festival this year, the Luxi 33 hybrid day-cruiser is a 9.9 metre long ship hot out of Sardinia's Cantiere Savona shipyard.

With a keen eye on eco-conscious practices and materials, the tender makes use of a roof covered in solar-panels to provide juice for an electric motor, which in turn supplements the diesel engine that powers Luxi 33.

Entirely constructed on the island, Luxi 33 features interiors designed by Sardinian-born haute-couturier Antonio Marras, further cementing the boat's credentials as a provincial point of pride. So much so, that the tender has become something of a hot-topic amongst the island's luxe hotels looking to inject an extra layer of local expertise to the pristine waters of the Emerald Coast.
