Darwin Class 96’: the main features and the brief
M/Y “Stella di Mare” has been designed and engineered to satisfy all the owner’s requirements. He and his large family will cruise extensively the Mediterranean Sea, covering also the most secluded and frequented spots, and they will then eventually cross the Atlantic Ocean and extend the navigation through US East Coast and the Caribbean.

The owner is a very life-at-sea and yachts passionate, he loves piloting his boat and he uses to spend a lot of time in the wheelhouse. For this reason, and in order to let him share his experience and time also with his family and friends, Cantiere delle Marche has designed a custom sky lounge, open on the wheelhouse.

In case of night cruising, the pilot station can be isolated by a rollaway screen avoiding interferences of lights on the bridge’s glasses. The Darwin Class 96’ superyacht Stella di Mare maintains the Darwin family feeling, but it differentiates from the previous Yachts of the same line for many features: the interiors – each room is 10sqm bigger -, the VIP cabin is 1,50 sqm longer, with almost the same volumes of the Owner’s Cabin and the main deck is considerably extended.

The garage, 10sqm bigger than the former vessels, contains also 4 bikes, 2 of them electric, with their recharge battery station.

As the interiors, also the exteriors gain in volumes and meters, in order to enjoy the very best experience every minute of the life aboard: all the bridges are noticeably longer and the sundeck has been enlarged to about 50sqm, from the (already big) 40sqm on the Darwin 86.

MTU 8V 2000 M72/720 Kw engines give 13,5 knots speed and minimum levels of consumption, thanks to the Heavy Duty setting, that characterizes all CdM’s yachts. A particular attention has been given to the insulation and noise control, on the owner’s specific request: CdM has developed a custom noise damping system which will reduce noise dramatically.

Darwin Class, as the name could suggest, are a type of vessels that heralds an advance in the evolution of a species, namely the yacht, which, although it modifies its form, keeps its DNA unchanged, the commercial ships, maintaining all the chromosomes that allow it to cruise in safety, in every weather’s condition and in complete independence. The yachts measure from 21 to 45 metres, and they contain features rarely seen in vessels of this size.

Darwin Class 96’: eco-features
CDM’s mission is to make its yachts eco-compatible: an important contribution in this sense is the option to outfit Darwin Class vessels with Azipod electric diesel engine systems developed in collaboration with the most technologically advanced companies in the shipbuilding industry. Thanks to these innovative, highly manoeuvrable propulsion units the yachts built by Cantiere delle Marche will lower their environmental impact, reduce their emissions and achieve a quantum leap in sailing autonomy before refuelling.
