New-build Cerri 40m motor yacht sold

A new 40.9 metre ice class expedition yacht to be built by Italian yard Cerri Cantieri Navali has been sold to an American client by Floating Life Charter & Brokerage.

Project named K40, the build will begin immediately in steel and aluminium with the steel hull being reinforced to cope with sea ice, the aim being to create a yacht equally at home exploring the Polar seas as well as cruising in the Mediterranean. Design is by Studio Sculli and an aerodynamic analysis of the superstructure will be undertaken before cutting the aluminium sheets.

The interiors will be quietly elegant using a combination of wood trim, lacquer and fine fabrics. Each of the four decks will have its own service pantry and there will be a beach area with a movie theatre and diving equipment. The sun deck will come complete with a bar and barbecue area and the fourth deck will be reserved for the owner’s use.

Floating Life CEO Andrea Pezzini, contract manager of the project, comments: “The choice of Cerri Cantieri Navali is the result of a selection process involving ten yards worldwide. What tipped the scales was not only an excellent quality to price ratio, but above all the yard's willingness to examine a completely custom project created to be able to undertake a voyage around the world.”

Diego Michele Deprati, CEO of Cerri adds: “This new challenge enables us to exploit our expertise in megayacht construction and to demonstrate the unique characteristics of quality and flexibility of our yard in a completely custom project.”
