Following her launch earlier this year, the 40.51-metre Cantiere delle Marche motor yacht, RJ, has been successfully delivered to her owner. Photo: Guillaume PlissonRJ was customised to the experienced owners preferences, and Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and Sales and Marketing Director at CdM stated, “It was a great pleasure to work with an owner who was keen to bring his experience to CdM… it is a serious statement of trust in our yard’s reliability and construction quality.”Photo: Guillaume PlissonJustin Ratcliffe was recently invited to view this impressive yacht at her shipyard in Ancona before her delivery, alongside her sister ship Aurelia. RJ is a steel and aluminium explorer yacht with naval architecture by Hydro Tec, and interior and exterior styling by Francesco Paszkowski. Her exterior design is purposefully classic and elegant, whilst her timeless and sophisticated interior design is focused on space for entertaining. The main woods used are bleached and brushed oak for the floor and wall paneling, whale Jerusalem stone is used for all the bathrooms on board.Photo: Guillaume PlissonPhoto: Guillaume PlissonPhoto: Guillaume PlissonRJ’s new owner wanted her constructed around the desire to spend as much time at sea as possible, therefore she includes additional specs such as reduced noise and vibrations on board and a special shaft line. Her multiple decks are deliberately spacious to ensure maximum enjoyment when hosting guests, including features such as al fresco dining spaces, a barbecue and large swim platform aft for easy water access.Photo: Guillaume PlissonShe can sleep up-to 10 guests across five guest staterooms, including a full-beam master stateroom with a private lounge and en suite bathroom. Large windows throughout the yacht offer plenty of natural light. Her interior features a show kitchen, a games room separate from the lounge, and a ship’s office.Photo: Guillaume PlissonRJ is equipped with twin MTU 10V 2000 M72 diesel engines and can reach top speeds of 14.5 knots and a cruising speed of 12.8 knots, with a 5500 nautical mile range at 9 knots.
