MY Falco Moscata, formerly launched as Exuma, is the first Explorer of the Vitruvius® series born from the collaboration between Vitruvius Ltd, Philippe Briand and Picchiotti.
Designed to provide the highest efficiency and range, the Vitruvius hull features very sleek lines and an extended water line. The gross tonnage is 497 GRT, with a full load displacement of 400 T. With a draft of 2,3 m, MY Falco Moscata allows for cruising and mooring in shallow waters.
On the occasion of her first world trip, the data recorded showed a range just below 6500 miles at the cruising speed of 12 knots, figures that have deeply affected the way of designing the hull of the modern Explorer yachts. A revolution widely recognised by the number of Prizes she was rewarded with.

The stylistic elements of the Vitruvius® project are embodied in the optimal balance between straight and curved lines, together with the presence of large glass windows that confer high visibility and luminosity to every deck of the yacht. In particular, the large, double-curvature, bombé glass windows of the bridge deck offer a spectacular full-circle panorama. These windows distinguish the yacht’s lines and make them unique.
The use of titanium in all the external handrails combines extremely high reliability even in the most extreme conditions of use with perfect chromatic harmony with the yacht’s hull.
On the superstructure, two ventilation grills integrated within the yacht’s line stand out as an aesthetic element, while the elegant mast for communication antennae, the navigation radars and the powerful searchlight is arranged on the superstructure roof.
Interiors and Exterior spaces are conceived to provide high comfort and privacy.
The proportions between hull and superstructure are balanced to host numerous exploration instruments and tools, large storage and warehousing compartments, while providing the guests with the needed room and privacy.
The design of the interiors is classic marine with an understated elegance emphasized by natural oak, teak and Italian marble finishing.
