The 60.35 m (198.0 ft) superyacht ROCK.IT was launched at the Feadship yard in Aalsmeer. The Dutch design company, Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design (who also worked with Feadship on the 88 m (289 ft) twins Musashi and Fountainhead), designed both the interior and exterior of ROCK.IT. Owner Jimmy John Liautaud was involved in almost every aspect of the yacht's creation.[2][3]

Design[edit]

Her length is 60.35 m (198.0 ft), beam is 10.8 m (35 ft) and she has a draught of 3.3 m (11 ft). The hull is built out of steel while the material of the superstructure is made out of aluminium with teak laid decks. The yacht is Lloyd's registered, issued by Cayman Islands.

ROCK.IT accommodates ten guests with four guest staterooms, as well as the generous owner’s stateroom. Her crew of 13 is accommodated by six crew cabins. Storage rooms, laundry, the galley and the crew mess are all located on the lower deck.

The yacht has three bars, as well as deck spaces with a variety of alfresco dining options. ROCK.IT also has multiple outdoor lounges, including a sun deck with seating and a Jacuzzi flanked by sun pads.[2]

Engines[edit]

ROCK.IT is powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 M53R diesel engines, giving her a combined power of 2,280 kW (3,060 hp). She has a fuel capacity of 120k litres, a water capacity of 24k litres, and a range of 5300 miles at 12 kts. She also features at-anchor stabilizers.[4]

Usage[edit]

The yacht is viewed as extremely active, having logged over 17,000 nautical miles in the first nine months after delivery, and almost 40,000 miles as of September 2017.[5] It has traveled around the world to destinations including Bermuda,[6] the Keys, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, Montauk and the Galápagos, among others.[5]

ROCK.IT has hosted a number of famous guests, including Kid Rock.[7][8]

Awards and recognition[edit]

ROCK.IT was a finalist in the World Superyacht Awards 2015, Displacement Motor Yachts of 500GT to 1,299GT category,[9] as well as in the Showboat Design Awards 2016, Interior Design Award – Motor Yacht over 500GT and Naval Architecture Award – Displacement Motor Yacht categories.[10]
