The seventy meter (229 foot - Seven inch) Numptia is a steel-hulled, aluminium-structured floating residence of impressive proportions and finish.
The vessel launched in Genoa several years ago after a three-year build and having been completely custom-built for an unnamed Italian born American businessman.
The owner selected a relatively unknown shipyard, Rossinavi Yachts of Viareggio, Italy to carry out the build and the designer, Salvagni Architetti of Rome to design the stunning interior.
The project manager was Marco Martinelli, Naval Architect, the Axis Group and the exterior design of the Vessel was the work of Design Studio Spadolini of Florence.
Interior finishes included silk carpets woven in Tibet, solid marble in the steam bath, quartz floors in the galley, and an oval dining table covered in riveted alpaca nickel silver.
The Numptia features lavish accommodation for up to twelve guests and includes a master suite, a VIP suite, three queen-size double cabins and one twin stateroom. The owner’s suite includes a bedroom, TV area, reading room, two dressing rooms and a bathroom with a solid-marble bath.
The Vessel is available for charter for US$690,000 per week during the high-season and US$645,000 during the low season. The Vessel was later sold for an undisclosed price, rumoured to be in the region of US$85 million and was subsequently renamed High Power III.
During sea trials in force four conditions, Numptia reached a top speed of 18.6 knots and at half power has a cruising range of 7,500 nautical miles at 12 knots. At fifty percent power, the Vessel burns about 132 gallons (500 litres) per hour.
The Vessel has four stabilisers accomplished by a combination of stern thruster, azimuth, Naiad stabiliser and bow thruster. A Schottel jet pump turns 360 degrees.
