The RJ line is a testament to our unwavering commitment to evolution in yacht design. Unlike the traditional notion of explorer yachts which tend to prioritize rugged functionality and utilitarian aspects, the RJ line seamlessly merges the spirit of exploration with the elegance of high-end luxury.
This achievement highlights our dedication to pushing boundaries of what a yacht can be, creating new categories that reimagine the possibility for contemporary yachting.
A pure explorer
While featuring a “white-yacht” and sporty look the RJ is a CDM vessel of the best breed: built in steel and aluminum, 12 mm thick keel plate, independent rudders, overengineered ship systems and back up pumps, well equipped navigation and communication package, plenty of storage aboard, ocean crossings capabilities and range.
The crane is located on sun deck aft, away from the entertainment area and concealed under a hatch with hydraulic opening. It can lift tender up to 2 Tons, measuring a length in excess of 6 meters and located underneath on upper deck aft. This solution brings several advantages: it frees the area usually occupied by the tender in the garage, which can therefore be employed for a different use like for example beach club, dive centre, water toys storage etc… It means for the guests to benefit of a larger tender in comparison with the ones find on the garages of yacht of the same size. It’s invisible to the guests and conceals to their view a mechanical part which would spoil an entertainment area.
The glass is one of the main protagonists of the design of the RJ. It certainly contributes to lighten the vessel volume and to light up his interiors. By using glass in conjunction with the structural elements of the boat, it also pleases the guests with the view of the sea even in situations where wouldn’t have been possible: the upper deck side walls of the sky-lounge are made of floor-to- ceiling glasses. The main salon windows are dimensioned in a way that a seated guest can look outside. The side bulwarks along the port and starboard walkaway are recessed and fitted with glasses. As a final touch and as a testament of designer’s attention to details, the backrest of the settee in the aft main deck cockpit has a glass recess that permits the guest seated in front to enjoy the sea-view.
The RJ boasts a second salon whose size is comparable to the main salon on main deck. This plus comes at no compromises with the other areas on the same the deck, which include a vast aft cockpit and a forward lounge, a day head, the captain cabin and his dedicated office and the renowned well equipped and functional wheelhouse.
A total of 200 square meters of exterior entertainment area is available to the guests and spread over three decks. The surface is all cladded with 15 mm Burmese teak, and mixes shaded area with open air ones. The outfitting of all exterior area is completed with custom pool, sunbeds with underneath ventilated storage, furniture and appliances.
We are Explorers
FRANCESCO PASZKOWSKI DESIGN
A good result – a good yacht – is always the result of a perfect team work. It’s essential.
Francesco, you are one of the most successful and talented Yacht Designer worldwide and you have worked
for the best companies of the yachting industry: what is your first impression after having started this
cooperation with CdM?
MG 129’s owner had precise ideas how his yacht should look like and Cantiere delle Marche always made the most to combine her owner’s wishes and the design issues with technical aspects. We can really say a perfect team work has been created among all people working at this yacht.
The Project MG is the result of time and energies spent together with the CdM team and the Owner.
How difficult is to deal with all parties involved and create the perfect synthesis? Has the renown quality
of processes, passion and flexibility of CdM, together with the professionalism of CNI New Build Dept helped so far?
A good result – a good yacht – is always the result of a perfect team work. It’s essential. We had already worked with MG 129’s owner at another yacht and we were confident we could meet his wishes for his new boat. Although It’s our first experience with CdM team, a very good relationship has been established from the very first day. It was an easy start and it’s going on better and better. It looks like we have been working together since longer. CdM experience together with CNI New Build Dept contributed effectively to solve a couple of aspects of the process.
Could you tell us more about the Project Mg 129? What was the brief
and what is your aim with this stunning design?
The owner brief was for an explorer with large social spaces both inside and outside, offering a close contact to the sea in order to enjoy his - and his guests– staying on board during longtime cruising everywhere. Lot of storage for toys was also requested. We focused on combining the essence of an explorer with peculiar features in terms of comfort and liveability to design the yacht her owner is expecting.
