Delivered in 2008, the first yacht made entirely by Rossinavi was the “South”, a 54 metre displacement vessel with a steel hull and marine grade aluminium superstructure designed by the architect Alessandro Cusumano.
The vessel is powered by twin CATERPILLAR 3516 propulsion engines, each with 2,200 BHP powering the five bladed propellers offering an average speed of 15 knots, with a maximum speed of 17.

The 140,000-litre fuel capacity and 19,000 litre fresh water capacity of this motor yacht guarantee “ocean-worthy” autonomy.
The electrical system, with a shore connection complete with a European/US standard frequency/voltage converter, is made up by Caterpillar generator sets (two main 148 ekW, one harbour/night 85 ekW and one emergency 56 ekW) that also powers two stabilizers able to reduce roll motions even when anchored in the harbour. Nimble and fast, yet stable and silent, when at sea the South demonstrates all of her grace and power thanks to the compact surfaces and slender lines that, elegant yet powerful, hark back to the shapes of robust merchant ships. The interiors were designed with the utmost attention to details, like the choice of materials and furnishing accessories that integrate with the simplicity of the forms and natural colours. The main deck, in addition to the owner’s suite and Vip cabin, hosts the main lounge, while the upper deck is where the dining room and TV area is located. The Sun Deck of South is dedicated to pure relaxation, with a sunning area, the must-have Jacuzzi and a covered gym that enjoys a charming frontal view from the large windows. The comfortable cabins can accommodate up to 12 guests.
