Cantiere delle Marche delivers Darwin Class 102

Cantiere delle Marche has delivered the Darwin Class 102′ Explorer Yacht Acala.

She was built for a Central American client whose team of consultants worked closely with Cantiere delle Marche to develop an Explorer Yacht suitable for his particular travel plans. It features several specific customisations such as a diving station and air conditioning in the outdoor areas.

The client appointed South American designer Simon Hamui as interior designer having worked with him on some of his houses and offices.

Cantiere delle Marche also launched 32.7 metre Storm, a Darwin Class 107, last month, and a Darwin 86, Stella del Nord, in July.

Vasco Buonpensiere, Sales and Marketing Director, Cantiere delle Marche said: ‘When the owner talked to the participants in casual chatting, the most repeated words were “Family” (as in the CDM Family) and “Friendship:” a confirmation that the atmosphere within this shipyard and synergies that are formed between the protagonists of each project (owners, crew, management, employees) are special. This success and the large number of yachts either delivered or under construction has not changed at all values on which this wonderful shipyard is founded.’

Acala will be officially presented during the next Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
