The well known Italian builder, Cantiere delle Marche (CdM) is delighted to announce that it will be attending the Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show for the first time, which is to be held from February 14 to 18. The company will be displaying the second Darwin Class 86 explorer yacht Percheron, following her successful premiere at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2012. Superyacht Percheron is a magnificent 26-metre explorer in steel and aluminium, constructed by CdM Yachts in Ancona and designed by Sergio Cutolo of Hydro Tec.
After crossing the Atlantic Ocean in 18 days with no troubles in October to come to Fort Lauderdale, luxury yacht Percheron has just come back from a fantastic cruise of the Caribbean, which has begun with the British Virgin Islands, continued west to the USVI’s with a stop in St. John and recently back to Florida, choosing a route over the Exuma banks. Over the last month, the owner of Percheron has been on board with his family, for their first extended cruise on board, experiencing what the Darwin 86 is all about. To read more on the cruise, CdM blog has constantly been updated by the Captain and the Crew of the Yacht during the trip.
The new Darwin Class 86 motor yacht Percheron, has a totally different layout features from the first luxury yacht Vitadimare3 that marked the beginning of the shipyard based in Ancona, builder of Italian leisure craft, and specifically displacement-design yachts in steel and aluminium. These important differences testify the great flexibility in fulfill CdM’s clients needs, raising the customization of all CdM projects to quite uncommon standards for this kind of dimensions.
Ever since its recent foundation, about 20 months ago, Cantiere delle Marche has set out to distinguish itself in terms of the contents of its vessels, focussing on top-flight quality and unique design. Each ship, produced in only a limited number of units, guarantees sturdy, seaworthy performance, combined with low fuel consumption and stunning volumes.
Darwin Class, as the name could suggest, are a type of vessels that heralds an advance in the evolution of a species, namely the yacht, which, although it modifies its form, keeps its DNA unchanged, maintaining all the chromosomes that allow it to satisfy its owner’s seagoing yearnings in waters anywhere in the world. The yachts measure from 21 to 40 metres, and they contain features rarely seen in vessels of this size: extra-thick steel plates, engines of heavy-duty dimensions, plus design and construction details normally found of ships with lengths of more than 40 metres.
The Percheron yacht’s interior design distinguish itself thanks to the linearity and lightness of the materials: elm and white lacquer, geometrical details of carpentry, vivid ethnic tissues designed by the Maison Hermès Paris, and a deep attention to the spaces for the children. Everything has been thought considering the personality and the voyage plans of the owners.
CDM’s mission is to make its yachts eco-compatible: an important contribution in this sense is the option to outfit its vessels with Azipod electric diesel engine systems developed in collaboration with the most technologically advanced companies in the shipbuilding industry. Thanks to these innovative, highly manoeuvrable propulsion units the yachts built by Cantiere delle Marche will lower their environmental impact, reduce their emissions and achieve a quantum leap in sailing autonomy before refuelling.
Recently, Cantiere delle Marche announced the new range “Nauta Air”, designed by Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of Nauta Yacht Design. A range of displacement and semi-displacement vessels with steel or aluminium hulls that measure from 80, to 96, and 105 to 115’ that combine durable substance, seaworthy performance and low fuel consumption with light, airy and contemporary design and ample, liveable volumes. The first sale of the Nauta Air 86’ yacht has been announced last july and will be ready in 2013.
