The Belafonte

Italian superyacht designer Federico Fiorentino has revealed a new 50-meter concept called The Belafonte, which harmonizes classic and contemporary design, creating a perfect blend of elegance, refinement and prestige.


The most particular feature of Milan-based Federico Fiorentino’s yacht concept, is its remarkable exterior design. Striking bronze exterior that catches the sun’s reflection off the sea and a unique stem design confer to The Belafonte a spontaneous sense of luxury. The style  of Federico Fiorentino is characterized by a distinctive use of traditional elements such as mahogany cap rails and polished steel particulars, mixed with modern lines concept, conveying past and present into modern yachts with a strong character. The outstanding bow shield featured on The Belafonte is a clear example of such an approach.


At 164ft in length, the aluminium Federico Fiorentino yacht takes full advantage of its outdoor space, boasting three decks with plenty of room for lounging or partying. With five cabins—including a VIP suite, two twin cabins, and a double—The Belafonte can accommodate up to 10 guests. The owner will retire to the largest room of all. With 84 square meters (around 904 square feet) of space and found forward on the main deck, it even has a separate studio, balcony, two walk-in closets, and two bathrooms. The main deck features also the formal saloon, dining space, pool, and sky lounge (with its own al fresco dining table and shaded bar).Here, an alfresco dining table can accommodate all the yacht guests while on the other side there’s a spacious shaded bar.


The Belafonte is characterized by a large amount of open deck space  with a large pool on the main deck and a Jacuzzi on the upper deck, both surrounded by big sunbathing areas. For more privacy, a very reserved lounge and sunbathing area can be found in the front of the upper deck.

Federico Fiorentino’s new yacht is conceived to adopt a fast displacement hull with a top speed of 18/24 knots depending on engine configuration. Though the Belafonte was designed without a client in mind, the company reports that it has already garnered some interest from a potential buyer.
