First pictures: CdM flagship yacht K42 takes shape

The first in-build photos of the 42.8 metre Cantiere delle Marche flagship yacht Project K42 have been released, showing that the hull and superstructure are now joined. The yard has now moved on to systems installation and hull verification.

Designed by Studio Sculli and commissioned earlier this year by Floating Life, Project K42 is a light ice class vessel capable of exploring the remotest areas of the globe’s oceans in complete safety and comfort.

The project follows in the footsteps of Project K40, from the same team of Floating Life and Studio Sculli, and currently under construction at Cerri Cantieri Navali.

The hull form was created using a fluid dynamics programme and tank-tested in Gothenburg, Sweden. As with all yachts in this K series, the owner can select their own superstructure design — in this instance Floating Life has specified a 75 square metre superyacht sundeck.

Currently offered for sale, Project K42's interior is configured with accommodation for up to ten guests in five cabins consisting of a master suite with a Jacuzzi and private deck, a VIP suite and a double and two twins, all with en-suite bathroom facilities.

A large superyacht beach club is planned for the lower deck and twin 1,450hp Caterpillar diesel engines will power her to a cruising speed of 14 knots and a range of 5,400 nautical miles at ten knots. Toy storage is extensive with room for an 11 metre primary tender, a six metre crew tender, a Jet Ski and an SUV.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 35.97 metre Acciaio 118, which is due to hit the water in 2019.
