CdM delivers Darwin Class 102 Babbo

Cantiere delle Marche has delivered Darwin Class 120 explorer superyacht Babbo to her South American owner. Babbo is the second Darwin Class 102 yacht to be delivered, with two further units sold and in production.

Babbo has a user-friendly layout with a 25 metre square garage to accommodate many toys and dive centre seats. The aft platform can house a five metre tender, with another 6.3 metre tender stowed on the upper deck.

Like her sisterships, Babbo is designed to withstand the strongest of elements and navigate easily in extreme weather, even if experiencing winds over 50 knots, for example. With naval architecture and exterior design by Hydro Tec, Babbo has a maximum speed of 13 knots and a cruising speed of 11.5 knots. Powered by two 1340hp Cat engines, she is capable of a 4,700nm range at 9.5 knots.

The interior of Babbo, designed by Simon Hamui and PFA Design, has a contemporary feel with much of the interior furniture coming from Italian brands such as Flexform, Baxter and Dedon.

"We are incredibly pleased with the results achieved,” said Vasco Buonpensiere, commercial director of Cantiere delle Marche. “The quality of our explorer yachts increases launch after launch and this, together with respecting - once again - the contractual schedule, makes us very proud.

“We also want to emphasise that the success of the Darwin 102, with the four units already sold, confirms the intelligence and the effectiveness of the foundational design choices: a true superyacht explorer comparable to yachts widely over 300 GRT, with the ease of management of a 24 metre yacht.”
