Falcon Yachts is diving back into the marine industry.

The Italian shipyard is planning to build a new 50-metre flagship, following a significant, decade-long construction hiatus.

Edoardo Spreafico’s Cantieri Navali Falcon began building motor yachts measuring between 15 and 35 metres in Viareggio, Italy in 1988. Sister company Falcon Yachts was founded in 1992 to respond to the growing demand for larger vessels. The final delivery Falcon made was the 27-metre Sea Falcon in 2011, after which the yard stopped production. After Spreafico died in 2018, Falcon changed hands and was subsequently acquired by T-Quest Holdings at the start of 2020. The international group completely renovated the yard and shifted focus to steel and aluminium superyachts measuring from 40 to 50 metres.

The new F50 was penned in partnership with Italian designer Horacio Bozzo and features engineering by Axis Group Yacht Design. With an interior volume of 499 GT, the semi-custom superyacht can accommodate up to 12 guests across six staterooms. The generous owner’s suite is positioned on the main deck, the VIP sits on the upper deck, and the remaining staterooms are located on the lower deck with the crew quarters.

The main salon and dining area lead to a beach club of over 300 sq m, creating a seamless connection between the interior and exterior decks. Above, the sundeck showcases a plush lounge, a Jacuzzi, a bar, an alfresco dining area, and, of course, panoramic views. The foredeck is home to a garage with enough space for a 7-metre tender, jet skis, and a rescue boat.

“The F50 boasts an ingenious utilisation of space, fostering an ambiance of relaxed elegance for its fortunate guests,” the Falcon team said in a statement. “Bozzo’s vision emphasises an innovative use of space, inviting guests to revel in an informal yet luxurious onboard lifestyle.”

Falcon says the F50 could be delivered as soon as 2027—if the yacht finds a buyer, that is. The yard confirmed it is working on a 45-metre at the Pisa shipyard, with delivery expected in 2025. It also plans to announce additional models, with the F38 next on the cards. Stay tuned.
