Despite the complications caused by the current Covid-19 pandemic, Italian shipyard CPN has announced the on-schedule delivery of its latest project to leave Ancona: the 36.6-metre explorer yacht K-584, which took place on 31st July. Photo: Maurizio ParadisiFollowing a two-year build period for an experienced Italian owner, the project has been overseen by Yachting Expertise since its development stages, who were also responsible for all of the technical aspects. This includes her naval architecture and construction engineering in collaboration with several other companies.
With exterior design by Andrea Vallicelli and Alessandro Nazareth, K-584 was built for maximum comfort and efficiency for owners keen to travel the world. Notably, a special-requested raw hull finish with no fairing layer gives K-584 a durable look whilst retaining a clean and reflective surface.
Cristiana Belardinelli, owner of CPN, commented on the delivery: “It has been an amazing and very challenging experience to go through the full design, development and building process, lived very directly also by the clients. Looking at this brilliant jewel like K-584 leaving our dock and taking the sea on August 1st made myself and our family so proud, a truly priceless moment”.Photo: Maurizio ParadisiGianluca Fenucci from Yachting Expertise said: “K-584 is a great and unique story of human relationship, ambition, professionalism, respect, intense teamwork and the love for the work we do since three decades, always with the same professionalism, passion and dedication."
He continued, "Yachting Expertise had the responsibility to keep all these values well balanced and timely deliver a very innovative project that we trust will raise the bar to another level with her personality, elegance and amazing performance. She is a beauty, strong, very efficient and very easy to be operated. What else do you need to be happy and enjoy yachting? Today we are very satisfied to have been able to reach once again the difficult task to make “everybody happy”, including ourselves at YE, and to be back to the yachting arena with a project that is different from everything else and that will set a new standard."Photo: Maurizio ParadisiOn board, accommodation is for up to 10 guests who are taken care of by a crew of five. The owner's stateroom is found on the upper deck and comes complete with a private outdoor terrace offering close-to 360-degree views, which is protected by a structural awning integrated into the yacht's superstructure. Remaining guest accommodation is found in two VIP and two additional guest staterooms.
Pierluigi Floris was responsible for handling the design of all guest areas on board. Supported by Yachting Expertise partner Lorenzo Barbini, he worked closely with the owners to customise all of the interior elements creating a modern but cosy feel, seen perhaps most clearly in her bright and spacious saloon on the main deck.Photo: Maurizio ParadisiThe experienced Italian owner, who was present at all of the sea trials for motor yacht K-584 (in which the vessel outperformed expectations in comfort and consumption levels as well as exceeding all contractual obligations in terms of her noise and vibration data) said: “For an owner’s perspective, the realisation of a project like K-584 starts with a dream that you try to transform into reality. You start by listening to your heart and after using your brain."Photo: Maurizio ParadisiHe continued: "Three intense years with all the parties involved are totally focused to reach the best results with regard to style, technical performance and seaworthiness. Almost three years that make the shipyard your second home, this is the feeling my wife and I had. Now that all personal, technical and comfort expectations have been exceeded, we have the privilege and great pleasure to enjoy this superb jewel. Viva CPN, viva K-584, we look forward to the next challenge.”Photo: Maurizio ParadisiIn preparation for her upcoming adventures, K-584 carries a 6-metre Tideman tender on her aft deck where a two-tonne HS-Marine crane can also be found for all launching and retrieving operations. Designed to accommodate serious underwater expeditions, the lower aft deck features a large swim platform with an adjacent fully-equipped diving area.
With her naval architecture the work of Yachting Expertise engineer Antonio Longobardi, twin MAN D2868 LE 425 715hp engines enable K-584 to achieve a top speed of 14.4 knots and reach an impressive range of 6,000 nautical range at 10 knots.
