by Chris Jefferies
As the video below shows, the steel hull is already complete and the aluminium superstructure is taking shape. Also known as hull 123.21, this 36 metre project is expected to launch before the end of the year with delivery taking place in early 2019.
Sold in February 2017 by Arcon Yachts, the Acciaio 118 yacht features exterior styling and naval architecture by Hydro Tec. The yard adds that there has been a particular emphasis on sound proofing to ensure a relaxing on-board atmosphere.
Accommodation is for up to eight guests split between four staterooms, including a full-beam master suite situated on the main deck and three double cabins. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to four people.
Key features include an open-plan saloon on the main deck with separate areas for dining and lounging. Moving upstairs and the superyacht sundeck will be fitted with a spa pool and sunpads, while the hard top Bimini allows guests to relax in the shade and enjoy a light meal or a drink from the bar.
Cantiere delle Marche has yet to release any details of the Acciaio 118's engine installation, but it is understood that the new model will boast a total interior volume of 350GT.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 42.8 metre flagship Project K42, which is also due to hit the water before the end of the year.
