Cantiere Delle Marche has announced the sale of the 40m superyacht Project MG 129, describing the new project as groundbreaking and revolutionary. An explorer yacht that was designed by Francesco Paszkowski with naval architecture by Hydro Tec, will offer extreme seaworthiness with graceful elegance to her new Owner.
“It is a great pleasure to work with an owner who was keen to bring his experience to CdM,” says Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and Sales and Marketing Director at Cantiere delle Marche. “By deciding to have his new yacht built by CdM he offered a serious statement of trust in our yard’s reliability and construction quality.”
“I would like to add that it is inspiring and a reason of pride to see how a growing number of experienced and motivated owners chose CdM to build their yachts,” Buonpensiere maintains. “Our clients have fantastic ideas for cruising, diving, luxury toys and serious boating. They are planning adventures, getting involved in underwater exploration, marine life observation, etc. As a shipbuilder, it is exciting to be a part of making their ideas a reality.”
MG 129 will become a part of the already experienced owner’s small fleet of yachts and will feature a plenty of exterior areas for relaxation, socialising or entertainment. She is a true go-everywhere, do-anything expedition yacht, with elegant, striking lines representative of Paszkowski designs. The designer, in addition to her remarkable geometry, included numerous stand-out features when it comes to her liveability, logistics and function.
“The owner’s wishes have been successfully combined with CdM’s experience and our team,” says Florentine designer Francesco Paszkowski. “The naval architecture and our design went hand in hand, resulting in a perfect marriage of function and form.”
“We are very glad to start a collaboration with Francesco Paszkowski based on mutual respect,” says Buonpensiere. “Moreover, Francesco has long since earned the trust of MG 129’s owner by designing for him no less than four yachts in the last few years.”
Accommodation aboard will spread over 5 elegant suites for up to 12 guests, in addition to four cabins sleeping 7 crew members.
Just like aboard AURELIA 29, the tender will not be housed by the garage but will be stored on the upper deck astern, launched and hauled by a crane incorporated into the vessel’s structure. When the tender is launched, this area will become a vast space for guests to enjoy while sunbathing, alfresco dining or simply relaxing and socialising with fellow guests. The decision to store the tender on the upper deck reflects various studies emphasising that tenders are kept in the water 93% of the time when the owner is on board, therefore it is more practical to use the stern garage for water toys storage, diving gear and other equipment.
Project MG 129 will be fitted with two heavy-duty MTU engines 10V2000M72 delivering 900kW each at 2250rpm and powering her up to a top speed of 14.5 knots. At the economic speed of 9 knots, the yacht will have a notable range of around 5500nm with about 10% fuel left upon arrival. She will be over-engineered with equipment redundancy and boasts a sturdy and reliable hull to allow her Owner to cruise extensively in complete safety.
