CDM is proud to announce the sale of an RJ155 explorer yacht to a repeat client
RJ 155 is the largest project to date for the Anconabased shipyard.
“We are extremely satisfied about the appeal of the RJ series”, says Vasco Buonpensiere, Cantiere delle
Marche Sales & Marketing Director as well as one of its far-sighted founders. “We are also very honoured
by the confidence that another of our existing clients has put in us to deliver such an extraordinary vessel,
which undoubtedly, will bring Cantiere delle Marche to another level. Being entrusted for the second time by
such an experienced yachtsman is a source of great pride for our shipyard and everyone will work tirelessly
to ensure the owners can enjoy their new yacht as scheduled in early 2025.”
A 'pure-bred' explorer yacht, the RJ155 belongs to the fortunate RJ series of which already five units have been sold. Despite her elegant line she encompasses all characteristics of an oceangoing explorer yacht: robustness, seaworthiness, long range, generous interior areas for both guests and crew, plenty of storage spaces, fridges and freezers, high-end equipment.
With a robust steel hull and aluminium superstructure, RJ155’s exterior lines bring the signature of Francesco Paszkowski who penned the entire series. Her interior design will be developed by Achille Salvagni who has been entrusted to design also most of the interior loose furniture. RJ155 will be indeed a truly custom made yacht where the brilliant minds of these two multi awarded archi-stars will prove once again CdM to be the absolute leader in building the best and more beautiful Explorer Vessels under 499 GT worldwide. Her strongly sporty yet sleek appearance was achieved by Paszkowski combining the volume with proportions fluidity. The elongated overhangs of both Sun and Upper deck gives elegance to the profile while allowing the particularly large stern terraces to be almost entirely shaded so that ample veranda-like areas create a seamless connection between the interior of the yacht and its surroundings.
RJ155 beauty doesn’t lie exclusively in her aesthetics: her 45m steel hull with a maximum beam of 8.80m, and considered technical equipment and naval architecture by Sergio Cutolo/Hydro Tec, will ensure seaworthiness, comfort and utmost efficiency. She will have a displacement of around 460t while the Gross Tonnage remains below 500GT. Stability will be granted by two couples of top performing electric stabilizers while vibrations produced by rotating machineries will be reduced drastically with the adoption of external thrust bearings.
Power comes from twin Caterpillar C32 Acert WOSR delivering 895kW each at 1800-2000rpm and allowing for a top speed of 15 knots. Combined with fuel tanks with a total capacity of 65000 litres, RJ155, as all expedition yachts built by Cantiere delle Marche, will have a remarkable range of above 5000nm at 9 knots that will allow her to sail far and wide without any stop for provisioning or refuelling, and to reach the most remote areas of the world in full comfort and safety. Spread across three decks plus a very large Sundeck, RJ155 will accommodate up to 12 guests in 5 suites, 4 of which are on the Lower deck amidship while the Owner suite located on the Main deck forward. The owners asked to have a large and super equipped gym by their apartment.
Extraordinary large outdoor areas entirely dedicated to relaxing and enjoying life en plein air are on both the Main and Upper deck stern section. Tenders are stored on the Upper deck forward while an array of toys such as SUP, electric scooters, bikes, diving equipment are stored in the large lazarette accessed from the swimming platform, a real signature feature on CdM yachts since its beginning, which has started to be seen on many other yachts lately.
As is customary on all explorer yachts by CDM, RJ155 will feature a textbook engine room with adjoining control room.
“Because of our innovative drive and profound knowhow gained over the years, CDM is today in a privileged position and our brand became an authoritative point of reference in the yachting market,” says Ennio Cecchini, CDM’s CEO. “The always bigger number of repeat clients, the commercial success, and the results achieved also in the second hand market, definitely speak for itself.”
