Zuccon International Project said it designed a new 147-foot motoryacht for Picchiotti Yachts.

Zuccon said the PY Heritage 45 M is a concept project that Picchiotti is presenting to its customers. The boat is a dual-function motoryacht that can be used as a classic expedition yacht and as a support vessel for Perini Navi superyachts.

Zuccon said the PY Heritage can carry a 29-foot tender and a sailboat of the same length in the bow area of the main deck, plus two jet skis. Launching the tenders frees up this space, which becomes a lounge area.

Zuccon said the PY Heritage 45 M marks the start of a new collaboration that pays tribute to Gerhard Gilgenast, one of the most important architects to work with Picchiotti Yachts in the past.

The new motoryacht will translate some of the style features Gilgenast has developed over the years into a more contemporary design language.

“I can’t help but feel extremely honored by this new collaboration,” architect Bernardo Zuccon said in a statement. “Picchiotti doesn’t need any introduction because it has written an important chapter in yachting history, both in Italy and worldwide. Setting out along this path is a source of pride for our firm, particularly as we are doing so with a project that is both experimental and extremely fascinating, as well as one that wants to pay tribute to an architect that has made an important contribution to Picchiotti Yachts over the years.”
