Antonini Navi Just Unveiled a New 144-Foot Sport Utility Yacht

Antonini Navi appears to have created the Range Rover of the high seas.

The Italian shipyard, which specializes in the construction of custom cruisers, just unveiled the first model in a new line of Sport Utility Yachts. Catering to the growing demand for vessels capable of traversing the farthest reaches in style, the new SUYs offer impressive seakeeping, comfort, and luxury.

Developed by Antonini Navi’s partner and sales director Aldo Manna and designer Fulvio De Simoni, the inaugural model spans 144 feet and tips the scales at approximately 480 GT. Christened simply the SUY 135, the superyacht features a sleek steel hull and traditional exterior lines. The robust and sporty profile is not dissimilar to a Range Rover, in fact.

The yacht can be fully customized inside and out by the owner, naturally. The proposed interior layout sees the main and upper deck connected via a raised deck with a short staircase. An owner’s suite of roughly 600 square feet occupies pride of place on the main deck, while four en suite guest cabins are located on the lower deck.

Outside lies a 430-square-foot veranda with an alfresco dining space that is protected from the elements by the raised deck. Further aft, the sprawling beach club is centered around a striking transom Jacuzzi that overlooks the sea below. Nearby sits a sizable transversal tender garage large enough to store a 23-foot RIB and plenty of water toys. Up top, the sundeck is outfitted with a bar, dining table, sun pads, and another Jacuzzi.

The SUY 135 should run as well as your Rangie, too. The newcomer has a range of 4,000 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 10 knots and can reach 16 knots at full tilt. It is also equipped with zero-speed stabilizers to ensure comfort on the water.

“Exactly like an SUV in the automotive world, the SUY offers the opportunity to experience the vessel with no limits”, Manna said in a statement. “The idea was created to allow the owner and his guests to enjoy their yacht at 360 degrees, being able to have toys, amenities, tenders, and any other means suitable for the many sporting and recreational activities that the sea and its places can offer.”

The first SUY 135 1 is already under construction, with delivery scheduled for 2026. Antonini Navi will soon introduce SUY 190 and SUY 108 to complete the range. Stay tuned.
