Watch: CPN Explorer K-584 Captured on Maiden Voyage

10 September 2020 • Written by Holly Overton

The 36.6 metre CPN explorer yacht K-584  has been captured underway on her maiden voyage after being delivered to her new owners last month.

The custom explorer was sold in June 2018 to an Italian client and left the sheds after two years in construction. According to the yard, the owners were looking for an "original design" and a yacht they could travel the world with.

Built in steel and aluminium to a design penned by A. Vallicelli & C. Yacht Designers, K-584 sports a "masculine" exterior with "military flavour" and a red stylised "K" towards the bow.

A "modern but cozy" interior comes courtesy of Architect Pierluigi Floris - working closely with the owners throughout the project - and can accommodate up to 10 guests across four cabins. The entire upper deck is dedicated to the owner's stateroom with a private outdoor terrace offering 360-degree views, while a VIP cabin and a further two guest cabins can be found on the lower levels. Further accommodation can sleep a crew of five

The project was managed by Yachting Expertise who was also responsible for the naval architecture of the vessel.

Power comes from a pair of MAN D2868 LE 425 engines delivering a top speed of 14.4 knots and a range of 6,000 nautical miles when cruising at 10 knots. During official sea trials, the yard said comfort was "second to none" with noise and vibrations at an "incredible low level".

With plans to visit remote locations, the yacht is equipped with a six-metre Tideman tender for diving excursions and exploring ashore.

Yachting Expertise's Gianluca Fenucci, who oversaw the project, said: “K-584 is a great and unique story of human relationship, ambition, professionalism, respect, intense teamwork and the love for the work we do. Yachting Expertise had the responsibility to keep all these values well balanced and timely deliver a very innovative project that we trust will raise the bar to another level with her personality, elegance and amazing performance. She is a beauty, strong, very efficient and very easy to be operated."
