BOOK 2018 / 2022

We are thrilled and proud to share with you that CDM continues to climb the ranking, positioning itself at the 12th place among the strongest yacht builders in the world, as reported in the Global Order Book published by Boat International.

Last year we were positioned on the 16th step. An unprecedented commercial success is indeed rewarding our relentless commitment to quality and innovation. Our order book includes 15 new builds for a total of 578 metres and an average length of 38.5m.

Being 12th in the world ranking is an extraordinary success for a shipyard that launched its first yacht only ten years ago!

Furthermore, CDM confirms and strengthen its undisputed global leadership for the construction of explorer yachts. Currently, CDM has a portfolio of explorer yachts under construction of the following ranges: Darwin Class, Flexplorer, RJ, EXP and also one-off projects.

Over the years, CDM explorer yachts have been awarded in international contests and in 2021, Aurelia, first yacht of the Flexplorer line, won all major awards in the yachting industry.

“Being true to our mission to build strong and reliable explorer yachts is what helped us to win the trust of a class of extremely experienced Owners that look at CDM as a point of reference in the international yachting market,” says Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and Sales & Marketing Director of CDM. “This is not only a result which comes from a very special year for the whole yachting industry, this is the demonstration that quality, reliability, attention to our customers’ needs and a vision always projected to the future, definitely pays off. Sometimes we still feel to be the ‘new kids on the block’, but this kind of results and the fact that a good part of our owners are very mature, they have or have had yachts from the most reputed shipyards from Northern Europe, and some of them are already at the second boat with us, frankly says that we definitely are not the ‘new kids on the block’ any longer!y!”
