New-build CdM Darwin 86 motor yacht sold

1 June 2021 • Written by Malcolm Maclean

Italian shipyard Cantiere delle Marche (CdM) has signed the contract to build its fourth 26.1 metre Darwin Class 86 explorer yacht with the buyer introduced by Igor Cherentaev of Alberton Yachts.

Like her sisters, the new Darwin 86 is designed and engineered by Sergio Cutolo of Hydro Tec, featuring extra-thick steel plates, commercial-grade water-treatment systems and independent rudders as standard. Also in keeping with previous CdM yachts, she will feature a customised interior and technical specifications.

Architect Pierluigi Floris, who styled the first 86s, created the interior styling for the new hull, designed around the owner's collection of contemporary art. She will have a modern interior styling to suit, with free-standing contemporary furnishings and materials ranging from beige to grey, matching the gunmetal-grey hull paint. Owner requests for this build include a sophisticated security system, dehumidifier system, a transitioning swim platform and an opening hard top.
