Vitruvius Yachts

Distinguished and elegant, with a unique beauty all of her own, Najiba certainly lives up to her name.

Introding Noble Najiba – a 58m Lifestyle Yacht

Najiba was designed by the Vitruvius team as a family superyacht for experienced owners, who were fulfilling a long-held dream to commission a pure customised yacht. Najiba was the first Vitruvius design built by Feadship and the second largest Feadship to be built in aluminum to date, saving weight and adding to the potential savings on fuel consumption.

The signature is clear in her sleek, low and timeless profile and her extremely efficient hull built in aluminium. The owners understood very well that a perfect yacht requires a strong scientific and architectural approach to support the exterior design.

After discussion with the owners, the space planning was established as the first priority. You could regard her as the perfect villa on the sea. The volume of 880 GT is generous and offers a number of rooms inside and vast open spaces outside, shaded from the sun.

Transparency is key for the quality of living on board and Philippe Briand designed the surrounding wall in glass of a special light tint of their selection. Purity is another principle in design for Vitruvius, the exterior style based on a minimum of lines, all designed as uninterrupted and streamlined.

Najiba was unusual for Feadship in the sense that her owners had already decided to work with a particular design by Vitruvius Yachts and a specific hull initially conceived by Philippe Briand before they came to the yard. The slender Vitruvius –style lines and distinctive vertical bow are based on Briand’s rich experience with designing fast sailing yachts.
