Uppsala, Sweden (Feb. 8, 2024) – Marine Jet Power (MJP), a leader in the waterjet propulsion market, has entered an exclusive collaboration with CENTOUNONAVI, an emerging luxury yacht builder in Italy, to unveil the VESPRO 55.

Featuring MJP 350 X waterjets, the VESPRO 55 is the height of CENTOUNONAVI’s commitment to excellence. Crafted with precision and lightweight engineering, the vessel’s hull boasts a remarkable 30 percent weight reduction, showcasing the shipyards commitment to sustainable solutions. This emphasis on weight reduction has enabled several design choices leading to smaller, lighter weight engines and waterjets resulting in fuel efficiency. 

“Our vision, ‘Fast is Green’ isn’t just a slogan, it embodies a deliberate design philosophy supported by a suite of eco-friendly innovations,” said Marco Arnaboldi, founder, and naval architect of CENTOUNONAVI “We have prioritized sustainability at every stage, from recycled PVC foams and other eco-conscious materials throughout the construction process. Furthermore, the waterjet propulsion system by MJP is a commitment to marine conservation, as it eliminates risk of damage to the seafloor and other marine life while maintaining efficiency at high-speed.”

CENTOUNONAVI’s strategic partnership with Marine Jet Power highlights an industry-wide trend, with more high-speed vessel designers and shipyards integrating waterjets into their designs for not only speed but comfort onboard. 

“The VESPRO 55’s design prioritizes both speed and serenity, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable experience for passengers, even at high speeds. The waterjet propulsion system, a key player in this equation, eliminates vibrations and noise, underscoring CENTOUNONAVI’s commitment to luxury yachting,” said Arnaboldi. 

Anticipation builds as CENTOUNONAVI recently announced their upcoming models, the 27-meter FORZA and the 40-meter ETEREA. Both vessels, equipped with MJP waterjets, promise to continue the legacy of innovation and luxury established by the VESPRO 55. As CENTOUNONAVI expands its portfolio, the yachting community eagerly anticipates the unveiling of these larger, equally impressive, waterjet-powered models.

We look forward to powering more of CENTOUNONAVI’s future models.”
