Following the news about the delivery of Darwin Class 96’ yacht Stella di Mare two months ago, set to make her premiere at the upcoming Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes, Cantiere delle Marche confirms the success of its sales and products strategies, with a new contract signed for the construction of the all-new Explorer Yacht Darwin Class 86’.
With an average of one yacht sold every three months from the beginning of the shipyard’s sales activities, Cantiere delle Marche is once again awarded by the international market. Many clients from different areas of the world have already taken the opportunity to build their new yachts at the CdM facility in Ancona, where big volumes, over-engeneering and handcrafted quality yachts are recognized by clients and surveyors worldwide.
The standards of the new Darwin Class 86′ yacht totally match the Darwin Class’ technical features, designed and engineered by Hydro Tec/Sergio Cutolo: the extra-thick steel plates, the treatment systems for bilge, black and grey water used also on commercial ships for H24/365 work, the remote controlled valves, the automatic parallel device for gensets’ management, two independent rudders are only a few of the standard fetures which make the Darwin Class standing out since its presentation to the market.
In this particular case, already during the contract’s negotiation, the client had the opportunity to customize both the tecnical specifications and his new yacht’s interior design. Architect Pierluigi Floris created stylish and refined spaces that can host all the pieces of the client’s family collection of contemporary art. The colours of the chosen materials go from beige to grey, intensifying till the gunmetal grey of the hull. The free standing contemporary furniture will harmoniously contrast the general sober lines of the interiors mood.
All the lower deck, following the owner’s request, will be very bright, thanks to the portholes which will be doubled, compared to the ones of the standard Darwin Class 86’ line.
The sky lounge on the upper deck will be a wide space dedicated to the entertainment, with hi-fi, rollaway tv and other domotic devices, that can be enjoyed by an unusual number of guests for a boat of this size.
Moreover, the Transformer swim platform, the dehumidifier interiors system, sophisticated perimetral anti intrusion system, and an openable hard top are just some examples of the requested customizations that the shipyard successfully implemented in its standard specs.
Vasco Buonpensiere, CdM shareholder and sales director, comments: “There’s no doubt that our Darwin Class line has soon become the main reference for everyone who is interested in the Explorer Yachts market. As a matter of fact, after less than three years of activity, the continuous visits at Cantiere delle Marche from many prospect clients and brokers, the on-going negotiations and the number of yachts sold and in construction up to now, are definetly positive signs, especially in this economic moment, that make us incredibly proud.”
Ennio Cecchini, CdM shareholder and CEO, adds: ”I personally experienced this long and exciting process that has brought us this success: I think the winning formula has been the full involvement of the client since the beginning, and I would like to thank him from all of us. It will be a very special Darwin Class, indeed and we are all looking forward to seeing it cruising the Oceans!”
