CdM gives expression to discerning yacht owners with a project to realize, by creating explorer yachts that are unique in their conception, building quality and style. This is the case of the K42 Audace, a surprising 43m/499GRT yacht which rocks the standards we are used to. We might define she an extra-ordinary yacht, a yacht which shape and features are surely out of the ordinary.

Audace fulfills her Owner's long-held project to commission a pure custom explorer yacht. The project stems from a fruitful collaboration of all parts involved in its development and all players are as expert, innovative and respected as might be expected of such a complex project. For CdM K42 Audace is a first. She is indeed the first pure custom explorer vessel the Ancona based shipyard has ever built and, when it was commissioned, it represented for CdM the first step into a new segment of the market.The project brings the signature of Andrea Pezzini/Floating Life who developed the K series in conjunction with Mauro Sculli entrusted for the naval architecture and has been engineered by Sergio Cutolo/Hydro Tec.

Project Manager for the yard has been young and skilled Domenico Ranieri who worked in close collaboration with Andrea Pezzini who acted also as Owner Representative.
