Cantiere delle Marche has recently announced the sale of two new superyachts; a Darwin Class 102’ and a Nauta Air 108’. The two sales increase the Italian shipyard’s total sales in 2014 to five, three of which took pace in South America.
The Nauta Air 108’ has been conceived for the Americas with an especially reduced draft. In addition to the usual features of an explorer yacht, she will also boast ample outside spaces that culminate in a 70 square metre sun deck and, on the main deck, a real beach club in direct contact with the water. An important feature of the boat is the 7.5 metre beam platform built to accommodate a layout that includes a master cabin on the main deck. On the technical side, this boat will be fitted with a latest generation Dynamic Positioning System along with a highly sophisticated navigation system, a ship-owner’s toy garage with side access door and a Bulb.
The Darwin Class 102’ is the sister ship to the Darwin Class 102’ sold in February and designed by Sergio Cutolo of Hydrotec. This explorer distinguishes itself thanks to an important modification brought to the stern, its particularly convivial layout and special attention to the water toys housed in its large garage. At the request of the client, she will be configured for extended navigation, particularly in the Caribbean as well as the waters of South America, and for getting the most out of the charter market.
The 60% of the company’s sales happening in South America is attributed to specific marketing and sales activities made possible thanks to a relational network. 2015 will see Cantiere delle Marche appoint a local dealer/area manager in the continent. As of now, three yachts are planned for delivery in 2015 (Darwin Class 107’, 102’ and 86’), with additional orders on the books and in production for delivery between 2016 and 2017.
