Cantiere delle Marche signs contract for Nauta Air 86’
By Maarten Janssen
After only a couple of weeks from the presentation of its new Nauta Air range, Cantiere delle Marche has announced the sale of the first Nauta Air 86’, the seventh CdM Explorer Yacht sold in less than 24 months. This aluminium Explorer Yacht, sold to an Australian client living in Thailand, combines seaworthy performance and low fuel consumption with an airy contemporary design, with large exterior spaces and a surprising volume. The yacht is the result of a collaboration between the renowned Milan-based design studio Nauta Yacht Design, and CdM.
In addition, Cantiere delle Marche is going to finalize other two sale contracts for a client in Germany and a client in Israel. Joshua Lee, Managing Director of Lee Marine comments:”The team at CDM and Nauta design have been outstanding from the first meeting and were able to meet every need of the client. A very enjoyable experience indeed. This range will enjoy great success in today’s new market and we are proud to have sold the first one”.
The owner of the Nauta Air 86’, modified the original Nauta Air 80’ project, to ensure the yacht will let him sail the Indian Ocean in safety, with an increased cruising range and plenty of comfort to entertain his friends and guests thanks to the large exterior spaces and volumes.
The owner comments:”Unlike any expedition yacht I have ever seen in this size, the Nauta Air 86 has stylish lines making her refined and elegant looking while remaining a true blue water cruiser. I am totally satisfied and proud of the customization and I am sure this will make my first custom yacht exremely comfortable. I can honestly say that the team at CDM, expecially Ennio and Vasco, have made this a smooth process and been very attentive to all of my queries and countless questions. The CDM factory is a wonderful new facility with a really great team on board, i got the feeling that everyone is a giant extended family. I am looking forward to the next 18 months and building the perfect boat, also a lot more of those long Italian lunches!”.
Vasco Buonpensiere, Sales&Marketing Director of CdM comments:”I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people working at Cantiere delle Marche. There is no doubt that each and every client and consultants who are stepping into the yard and/or on our boats immediatly percieve the highest level of quality and finishing available for this size of boat worldwide. And this is the result of the efforts that everyone at the yard is making day after day, restlessly". And adds: "What Nauta Design has achieved in translating our brief into the Air range, is close to perfection: boats with a lot of character while maintaing the simplicity and the cleanliness of their lines. Boats expressing a Roaring Elegance, indeed".
