Different and sleeker bow windows as well as lines are only some of the features that give a more contemporary and cutting edge style to the Darwin Class line.

CdM proves itself to be once again a boutique shipyard where attention to detail and to everyone’s needs, together with the ability to listen, and willingness to fulfill every wish of the owner are the key to the success of every project,” comments Vasco Buonpensiere, Sales and Marketing Director of CdM.

Accommodation aboard STELLA DEL NORD yacht is offered in the master cabin and the VIP cabin in the bow, both full beam.
