Cantiere Delle Marche was appointed by Floating Life to build the new explorer superyacht K42, which measures 42 m with 499GRT. The new project reconfirms the success of the shipyard and places it in a higher position in the market of steel explorer yacht from 80 to 140 ft.
The new explorer vessel is a part of the Series-K and is based on a technical platform tank tests. Studio Sculli will work on the interior and exterior design of the yacht, while Studio Hydrotec will be responsive for naval architecture. The delivery of the yacht is scheduled for the end of 2018.
The acquisition of this new contract is also a great occasion for the CDM management to formally announce the birth of a new business unit dedicated exclusively to the realisation of projects other than those within the two now-famous ranges: Nauta Air and Darwin Class. The ONE-OFF UNIT will, in fact, develop, implement and deliver only one project every 18/24 months and a dedicated team will be specifically created for such projects.
