Italian yard CdM has announced the sale of two explorer yachts made at the Cannes Yachting Festival; a 43 metre EXP 42 and the fourth 35 metre RJ115 from the yard’s RJ line.

The EXP 42 was sold to a repeat client from central America

The builder also hinted that three more contracts were “on the final straights”, all for sub-500GT yachts.

The EXP 42 was sold to a repeat client from central America while the RJ 115 was sold to a “very mature client” moving up from “top level production boats”

The fourth RJ 115 was sold to a “very mature client”

Based on the same naval platform of an in-build custom yacht already underway, the EXP 42 features exterior design penned by Francesco Paszkowski characterised by “full-height vertical windows and a highly functional stern area”. Elsewhere the yacht features four guest suites on the main deck and large crew quarters on the lower deck.

Both sales were confirmed at the Cannes Yachting Festival

“EXP 42 brings the concept of explorer yacht to a further level,” said co-founder and sales and marketing director Vasco Buonpensiere.

He added that the sale of the fourth RJ 115 “proves that the RJ line has definitely hit its target: appealing to yacht owners who want a real explorer vessel with an elegant and timeless yacht design.”
