The Sale Of A
Darwin Class 102’
Success continues unabated for the Ancona-based shipyard as the fifth contract is signed for the building of an Explorer Yacht Darwin Class 102’ .
Today, Cantiere delle Marche has just announced the signing of a new contract to build the fifth Darwin Class 102’, confirming its on-going success in this line of explorer yachts. In the five years since being launched, the Darwin Class and the Nauta Air lines have pushed the shipyard into a dominant position, representing approximately 60% of the 80- to 110-foot steel and aluminum Explorer Yacht worldwide market.
The new Darwin Class 102’ is due for delivery in 2018 to a Malaysian owner. The boat was sold by Lee Marine Phuket in conjunction with CdM Sales and Marketing Director Vasco Buonpensiere. The client, a mature owner with a passion for explorer navigation, will cruise with his large family through the islands of the Indian Ocean.
Vasco Buonpensiere, Sales & Marketing Director for the shipyard, comments:”In addition to the satisfaction of having sold one of our explorer yachts in an exotic country like Malaysia, we are thrilled to have found a ship owner who embodies 100% the Darwin Class spirit: not only an experienced and excellent diver but also a passionate adventurer in search of wrecks and marine relics. With this latest success, CdM confirms its strong international presence, thanks to a product line and characteristics sought after by conniasseurs of all nationalities. In fact, in line with our core values, the CdM Explorer Yacht in substance and content makes itself easily appreciated anywhere in the world”.
Like all Darwin Class yachts, also this new Darwin Class 102’ has been designed by Hydrotec and boasts a series of interesting customizations requested by the owner: the master cabin will be on the main deck, wide kitchen and breakfast area for all the family, big living area with cinema. In the lower deck, a double full beam cabin/suite can be turned into two VIP cabins with bathrooms. The tender will be a 45 knots speed custom boat in alluminium. The lazarette will be equipped with a custom diving station with nitrox compressor.
All the technical standards that have made CdM a benchmark in its sector have been maintained: 12mm steel hull, cupronickel piping, independent rudders, automatic generator parallel, electric fins stabilizers, as well as wastewater treatment systems for black, gray, and bilge waters that have been adapted from the world of work ships and designed to be used 24/7 year round.
