Commercial success at CdM:
Deep blue 141 sold
Cantiere delle Marche is proud to share the exciting news of its second sale in the first two weeks of 2024: a Deep Blue 141. This news comes just a week after the announcement of the sale of a Deep Blue 115!
“The sale of the Deep Blue 141 has been finalized in collaboration with the London office of IYC, as was the case of the Deep Blue 115. Needless to add, how fruitful the collaboration between Cantiere delle Marche and IYC is proven to be,” says Carlo Aquilanti, Sales Manager of CdM.
“The resounding success we are witnessing is the result of a journey that commenced long ago - a journey that proceeds propelled by our unwavering determination to adhere to our strategic course, and the visionary approach that takes us forward. This achievement is not merely an occurrence; rather, it is the manifestation of our relentless commitment. The indomitable spirit of the explorer yachts we have meticulously built since we started our activity in 2010 is a living testament to the profound pride we take in our accomplishments. We didn’t become the world leaders in the construction of explorer yachts by chance or for a stroke of luck. We stand tall, our successes a testament to the exceptional heights we have reached, and with the ingrained quality - in both design and construction - of each new explorer yacht we build, we carve a legacy in the yachting industry”, Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and CEO of CdM proudly comments.
“We believed and invested heavily in the Deep Blue range stemming from the beautiful project of Acala, developed through a rewarding collaboration between us, Horacio Bozzo, and Acala’s Owner himself,” Carlo Aquilanti concludes.
Head of IYC Sales UK, Richard Gray, who represented the buyer says, “The project has been sold to a very experienced British client, who started the journey with me reviewing the 105’ Darwin, 115’ Darwin, and now agreed on the 43m Deep Blue. Having previously owned multiple production yachts, the client's aspiration to circumnavigate the globe is met seamlessly by the unparalleled capabilities of CdM, providing an optimal platform for such an ambitious endeavor. We are thrilled to be able to bring the client's dream to life through the customization and visionary craftsmanship synonymous with Cantiere delle Marche”.
Adam Ramlugon, Partner at Hannaford Turner LLP, who advised CdM on the legal aspects of the deal affirms: “Having represented CdM for a few years now, it has been a privilege to be a small part of their continual growth and success. They are rightly recognized as leaders in their field. As ever, it was a pleasure for us to work on this project with the CdM team, and we are very pleased with the outcome. We wish the owner every happiness with this fantastic project and look forward to seeing her development in the lead up to delivery.”
The Deep Blue 141, a robust explorer yacht, features an exterior design by Horacio Bozzo, who developed the entire Deep Blue series, complemented by interiors by the UK-based Vickers Studio. Naval Architecture and engineering are by Hydro Tec.
“Deep Blue 141’ maintains intact her sistership’s soul - M/Y Acala- while adding some specific requests from the client, proving to be a perfectly customizable platform,”affirms Horacio Bozzo.
The interior designer John Vickers of Vickers Studio describes the project as follow: “ We are very pleased to be working on the interior design of this new 43m Deep Blue. We have been looking forward to the opportunity to work with CdM for several years now as their reputation for quality and honesty through the build process has created some of the last few years most important launches. Working with IYC and White Waters on the experienced owner’s team, we look forward to bringing a fresh new Interior design to this impressive, award-winning CdM 43m world cruiser.”
The exterior lines of the Deep Blue 141, in the spirit of the Deep Blue range, are characterized by a seamless fusion of aesthetic appeal and functional layouts, skillfully bridging the gap between the robust explorer yacht look and the timeless elegance of an oceangoing luxury vessel. The vessel is designed to navigate the world's waters with utmost safety, ensuring that her owners can embark on unforgettable journeys to remote and exotic destinations.
With a robust steel hull and a total length just above 43m and a generous beam of 8.60m, Deep Blue 141 has a Gross Tonnage shy of 500GT. Propelled by twin Caterpillar C32 engines delivering 746kW each, she will reach a top speed of 15.3 knots. One of the standout features of this explorer yacht is her impressive range of around 7500nm at 10 knots, a testament to her capabilities for global exploration.
The layout of the Deep Blue 141 takes inspiration from Acala’s yet it fully reflects her owner's preferences and lifestyle.
