When you think about just what you’d like to accomplish on your next cruise, it’s as if the design team at Cerri Cantieri Navale can see into your thoughts. The result shown here is “Phileas,” a 114-foot explorer yacht equipped with a pair of 965-horsepower MTU V-8 diesels, a main-deck master, choice of three or four guest suites belowdecks, a steel hull with aluminum superstructure, and capacity for better than 13,000 gallons of fuel—good for 4,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. The result is a far-ranging, good-looking displacement vessel that carries a nickname that’s an homage to the main character from Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days. If that doesn’t stoke your imagination, nothing will.
