Currently under development by CNM in Rome, the Italian shipyard is working on creating the first model of their flagship line, the Continental 110. In discussions with an existing CNM client, company Director Guglielmo D’Agostino tells us that upon successful negotiation of the contract, construction on the world’s largest ‘Open’ yacht will commence this summer with an expected delivery time in 2018.
The yard is already planning on constructing multiple hulls of the vessel, but keeping to the CNM motto, each of these will be a custom creation working closely with each client on layout and specifications options by using an interior designer of his/her choice.
Tank testing on the hull, designed by Alberto Ascenzi, has been completed and CFD results indicate that the two MTU 2600HP engines powering the Arneson surface drives will provide a top speed in excess of 40 knots. Another special feature of the yacht is her shallow draft. A clearance needed of only 1.1 metres means guests can now enjoy their favourite coastal backdrops from up close.
Other guest comforts include a stowable 4.5 metre tender and a sophisticated on board stabilising system.
