M/Y Nautilus, formerly Grace E, is the largest unit in the Picchiotti Vitruvius Series. This 73 m Explorer designed by Vitruvius Ltd and Philippe Briand has been realised to cruise at any latitude in respect of the environment, while providing the highest degree of well being onboard.
The combination of the hull design with the powerful and efficient electric/ diesel power plan allows MY Nautilus for a range of 7800 miles at cruising speed.
The advanced systems for the emission reduction and waste treatment and management onboard are not only a testament to her environmental awareness, but allows this true Explorer to remain completely isolated from shoreside disposal facilities for weeks at a time.
The interiors, designed by the French designer Remi Tessier, are inspired by the well being of both body and mind, by the nature surrounding the yacht and by the pleasure of entertaining a close family. The result is a timeless style of utter contemporary elegance and refined balance.
The uniqueness of this project has been globally recognised and MY Nautilus has been largely awarded.

Her whole naval architecture concept is all about efficiency and seaworthiness.
Thus, Nautilus hull features sleek lines, a maximised water length and a low drag underwater hull shape.

The huge guest external areas are located on the three decks and are connected to the inner rooms with massive sliding doors.
One of the decks is fully dedicated to the wellness with a state-of-the art SPA and aft and fore deck spaces devoted to the contact with the nature and to the relax.
The upper deck is an open space dedicated to dining and entertaining, the outdoor area is separated by mean of an 8 m wide glass sliding door.
On the main deck the protected and comfortable aft cockpit provides the guests with a further dining space and huge bar.


Nautilus interiors are designed by Remi Tessier who declined their style around the concept of voyage and exploration with family and friends. The nature around the yacht is the main inspiration for the selection of materials and colour shades, as well as for the idea of enhancing the natural daylight throughout the yacht. The other leitmotiv is the well-being of body and mind. The result is an interior of extraordinary elegance and impeccable finishing.
