First pictures: Project K40 in-build at CCN

Italian yard Cerri Cantieri Navali has released the first in-build pictures of its 40.9 metre motor yacht project K40, which is taking shape in Marina Di Carrara ahead of a planned 2017 launch.

Sold to an American client in October 2015 by Floating Life Charter & Brokerage, this 500GT explorer yacht is being built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure to a design by Studio Sculli.

The yard adds that the full displacement hull has been reinforced to comply with Light Ice Class requirements, as her owner has some high latitude cruising in mind. Recent work includes the mounting of the propeller-shaft supports, shaft pre-alignment work and the installation of the tender garage door.

Accommodation is for 12 guests split between five staterooms, including an owner’s cabin, two doubles and two twins with Pullman berths, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to 11 people. Key features include full-service pantries on all three decks and a cinema area in the superyacht beach club.

Her vital statistics include a nine metre beam and a maximum draught of 2.6 metres, while a pair of 1,450hp Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines allow for a top speed of 16 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of ten knots, K40 should be capable of a globe-trotting maximum range of 5,400 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 65,000 litres.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include a 27 metre Fuoriserie yacht that is due to hit the water next year.
