CdM Launches First 37.35 Metre Explorer Acciaio 123
by Miranda Blazeby
Built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the Acciaio 123 features exterior styling and naval architecture by Hydro Tec. The yacht is the second unit in the CdM’s Acciaio series and follows the Acciaio 105, which was launched last year.
Described by the yard as “impeccably contemporary”, the explorer features “sophisticated” interiors designed in-house with the owners.
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests split between five staterooms. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to seven people.
Key features include an open-plan saloon on the main deck with separate areas for dining and lounging. Numerous interior spaces are spread across three decks, while the galley is located to port and the owner’s stateroom sits forward of the main deck.
Propulsion comes from twin Caterpillar engines for a top speed of 13 knots and a range of 5,500 nautical miles at 10 knots.
Co-founder and sales and marketing director of CdM, Vasco Buonpensiere, said: “I am really looking forward to showing this vessel to the market: her technical areas are just incredible as far as finishing, layout, unrivalled engineering and interiors are really surprising in terms of volume and use of the space.”
