July 16, 2015

The all-new Darwin Class 107 explorer motor yacht STORM splashed at the Cantiere delle Marche shipyard in Italy’s Ancona yesterday, on July 15, 2015. The flagship superyacht STORM represents the first yacht over 100ft launched by the shipyard, currently working on more 100ft+ vessels.

In terms of style, super yacht STORM has taken inspiration from the new Darwin 86 and 102, including a more balanced longitudinal profile for a more contemporary style, the increased window surface, as well as lowered gunwale for a closer contact with the sea.

Vasco Buonpensiere, sales and marketing manager of the shipyard, says:The owner of this beautiful explorer ship was the first customer to have contacted this site in 2010 and, after three years of inquiries and checks with his advisers at the best manufacturers in the world , in 2013 he decided to buy this Darwin Class 107. In addition to this, he chose Cantiere delle Marche after owning a yacht built in one of the best North European shipyards and, consequently, being accustomed to a very high level construction quality. There is no doubt that the baptism of Storm marks an important moment for all those who work here, as well as for the owner.”

Ennio Cecchini, CEO of the Cantiere delle Marche, added: “Building this yacht was exciting in every respect: the synergy between shipowner and crew, the goals shared by them and the whole CDM team, and the driving force created by a common passion for the explorer ship and the quality of the construction details has really created a special ship. With its 300 gross registered tonnage, it is not comparable to any other boat of the same length. The volume was masterfully used and perfectly balanced between operational areas and those of the shipowners. We look forward to being able to present to the press this Yacht in detail: every corner of Storm is a surprise in terms of engineering and quality.”

Luxury yacht STORM was built for an experienced British yachtsman, who will spend more than 120 days a year on board with his family. She offers comfortable accommodation in 4 lovely cabins, superbly designed by PFA Design.

Darwin Class 107 STORM yacht is expected to make her world premiere at the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival 2015. She will debut alongside the Darwin Class 86 motor yacht Stella Del Nord and the CDM Nauta Air 90 superyacht NOGA.
