Prada has actually revealed its sparkling new AC75 Luna Rossa monohull that will represent Italy’s Circolo della Vela Sicilia yacht club at the 36 th edition of America’s Cup, the oldest prize in the sport of sailing. The Italian label– who is also sponsoring the event– sent its design lead and name Miuccia Prada to christen the boat yesterday in Cagliari, where she was joined by other half Patrizio Bertelli (President of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team), the town’s archbishop, Monsignor Arrigo Miglio, Agostino Randazzo (President of Circolo della Vela Sicilia) and Marco Tronchetti Provera (CEO of Pirelli).
It took a team of over 90 people and an overall of 78,000 hours to finish the watercraft, which was built by high-end private yacht maker Persico Marine. The makeup of the hull consists of 7,000 square meters of carbon fiber and 400 square meters of aluminum honeycomb, as well as 2 carbon-fiber “foil arms” that can support up to 27 lots. There’s also a “soft wing” rig that is crucial to the most recent model, which includes parallel sails for an innovative new detail.
” This is our 6th America’s Cup obstacle, however launch day is as amazing as ever– it is the wonderful minute that brings together many months of work and devotion and the anticipation of finally seeing on the water what was until now only a style,” specified Bertelli.
In other places for the brand name, the automobile world motivated among its newest shoes releases, which have large soles similar to vehicle tires.
