Lapitec sets sail for new horizons in the Cantieri delle Marche yacht

Project Name: Private boat
Date of completion: August 2016
Material: Grigio piombo vesuvio, grigio cemento lux 
Application: Furnishings tops, kitchen

The perfect union of functionality and aesthetic refinement: these are the values that have led the Cantiere delle Marche yacht company to choose full body sintered stone as a material for some of the surfaces in the new Explorer Yacht M/Y Babbo. In fact, with its very sociable layout, the yacht features various cooking, dining and chill-out zones that can host up to 30 people.
In this context, Lapitec®’s resistance to atmospheric and environmental agents, the natural quality of the colours and the extreme workability of the slabs make it the perfect material for use at sea.

Sintered stone: an ideal material for the nautical sector

Thanks to its resistance to atmospheric agents and saline environments, Lapitec® sintered stone is the perfect solution for marine vessels. The chosen finishes are 12-mm thick, Satin and Lux slabs, in Grigio Cemento. Lapitec® worktops have been used for the furniture on the main and upper deck, as well as the work surfaces of the outdoor bar and BBQ area in the sundeck.

A modern, space-saving kitchen

Sintered stone is also the material of choice for the yacht’s kitchen. In this case, the Vesuvio finish has been used, which has a more structured surface and a subtle bush-hammered effect, for a distinctive and dynamic look. The Nero Antracite colour, coordinates perfectly with the highly technical aesthetic of the kitchenette, with its stainless-steel wall units, doors and electrical appliances.
