CdM sells first superyacht to US market

CdM sells first superyacht to US market

Italian yard Cantiere delle Marche has announced its first sale to the US market for a 32 metre explorer yacht.

The Darwin 106 is set to be delivered in time for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in 2021.

Sold to an American owner, the Darwin 106 will be based on the same platform as the yard’s existing Darwin 102 model but customised to the owner’s stipulations.

This will include a specifically designed layout including a country kitchen in the main saloon and the owner’s stateroom located on the upper deck, which will not feature a sky-lounge. The cockpit will also be fitted out to accommodate sportfishing on board.

While few details have been released about the new yacht, the Darwin 102 on which it is based features accommodation for 10 guests in five cabins and a crew of six in three cabins.

Two CAT C18 Acert engines provide a top speed of 13 knots and range of 4700 nautical miles at 9.5 knots.

Yard co-founder and sales and marketing director Vasco Buonpensiere said the sale was a watershed moment.

“As the market matures, customers get picky and the American owners definitely know what they want. This is why I am so proud of this contract,” he said.

“The owner of this Darwin 106 has a great deal of experience in yachting and is assisted by a highly experienced team. This means a lot to us. It is proof that we are doing our job properly combining construction and technical qualities with style and elegance.”
