Picchio Boat, the new catamaran concept conceived and designed by Christian Grande, has already become an icon of a different way of life and the ideal yacht to interact with the surrounding natural environment, thanks to a project approach devoted to a lifestyle based on the possession of time, true added value in today’s frantic world, and on the freedom to dispose of your own space and enjoy the journey and its stopovers, or blend these all into a unique experience.
These freedoms are unleashed by the concept and the layout of the boat, which makes it totally “permeable” to light, sounds and scent of the sea. A catamaran that blends with nature and with its shades, shaped by wind and water, elements that are celebrated and cited in its colors and finishes. A catamaran that becomes a nest and a cradle, a reading room, a veranda, a personal island from which to contemplate and appreciate unique landscapes that are never the same and share them with your own family and selected guests.
A brand new player, therefore, in the conventional boating industry; a boat that has become a milestone, and for which a new series of accessories, called “Picchio EXTRA”, will be available: accessories that share the same vocation, informal language and aesthetics with products that will be true ”satellite” complements.
First of all, there will be a dedicated marine tender, a rib exclusive and unique in terms of identity and recognition, with aesthetics and usability in line with the Picchio philosophy: thanks to a square bow and a cleverly-shaped deck, the capacity and the interior space are pushed to the highest level; comfort, spray protection, safety, equipment, colors and details all recall the main catamaran, such as the teak deck that bends in continuous forms, recalling the sand dunes, an obvious citation of the stern of the Picchio Boat.
The alter ego of the above said tender is a bicycle. Foldable, compact and designed to be unique in its kind, rich in aesthetics and technical elements that make it a real life experience: it features a Brooks saddle, hand-made wheels in anodized aluminum and a teak handlebar. Its transportability and size make it the ideal complement with which to disembark from the Picchio Boat and explore new places, or simply pedal along. Created by ItaliaVeloce, the Picchio bicycle was created in order to extend the privilege of owning a Picchio Boat even when you are not onboard your personal island.
The rib and the bicycle are not the only available items that will be offered in conjunction with the Picchio Boat: a new series of suitcases and travel bags, made of fine leathers and ropes, with natural tones and breathable inserts, will be the ideal containers for the personal belongings of the Picchio Boat owner and guests.
Besides, a series of foulards which carry the same vocation of the Picchio Boat, made of cotton fabrics in different combinations of colors, will be combined with beach towels in untreated or dyed fabrics, to preserve the natural features, as precious signs of authenticity.
Last but not least, to seal the evolution of the Picchio Boat concept, a new director’s chair, foldable and easily storable, will be the ideal addition to the equipment. Made of polished steel and teak, it has a specially designed shape with a “projection”, which gives it elasticity and “softness” while preserving the characteristics of strength and value already inherent in the use of noble wood combined with steel.
The workmanship of the two materials and their final production is entrusted to the expert hands of the historical manufacturer Foresti & Suardi, one of the best Italian companies in the sector, and one of the very few that are able create objects of such character and uniqueness.
The series of furniture and accessories Picchio EXTRA will be further enriched with new items and products of unique character and prestige.
