Motor yacht Gatto is a fully custom, 105-ft yacht designed with accessibility and comfort using advanced technology and modern design with interior finishes crafted by luxury designers. With 3 sun decks, an infinity pool, a custom bar, an outdoor lounge, and an indoor living room and dining room, the owner required a unique multi-room audio system for each of the different environments to provide a premier yachting experience. Although the boat is well-insulated from vibration and noise, the mix of interior finishes and furnishings of glass, high-gloss veneers and wooden floors provided a challenge for achieving a crisp, clean sound.
Moreover, the loudspeakers were required to integrate seamlessly with the sleek design of the luxury yacht. The complete system included 6 Anakonda-KAN200 line arrays connected to form two lines of 6 meters of continuous sound down the length of the boat. Two Kobra-KK102 loudspeakers were installed on each side of the sun deck and paired with a Rumble-KU26 subwoofer for the low end frequencies, completely hidden from view. Two Lyzard-KZ14 mini line arrays in polish stainless steel finish for an elegant, yet powerful audio solution for the cabin quarters powered by another Rumble-KU26. Lastly, two Vyper-KV52 flat line arrays were installed on each side of the large LED TV in the living room/lounge to provide the owner with a high-end AV system for entertainment. All rooms were powered by a Kommander-KA24 and a Kommander-KA84 amplifier.
