Live from Cannes: Floating Life and CCN new 43m explorer concept

Written by Gemma Fottles

Announced this week at the 2016 edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival, Floating Life and CCN have joined forces on a new 42.5 metre explorer concept. Developed using the tested hull of the K40 superyacht from CCN currently under construction for an American owner, the Commander 415 features engineering and exterior design from Studio Sculli.

“The design of the C415,” explains Mauro Sculli, “is what I would call ‘transversal’. i.e. a compromise between different types of yachts, mainly an explorer and a traditional, modern craft, combined with the wish to include elements that would immediately and clearly reflect CCN’s distinctive style”.

The interior layout features several innovative solutions and has been conceived to offer guests the utmost comfort thanks to spacious interior and exterior volumes, and large relaxation and sunbathing areas. The owner is offered a private deck featuring an expansive master suite as well as a private pool at the bow, whilst guests can enjoy an infinity pool on the upper deck as well as the spacious beach club and bar on the lower deck where an additional four guest cabins are found.

In regards to her performance, she will be powered by twin CAT C32 ACERT engines, providing her with a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots as well as an impressive range of 5,400 nm.

Our success with the K40 encouraged us to develop this new project, of which we are very proud, in cooperation with Floating Life. This yacht stands out for a number of modern, innovative solutions,” comments CCN’s CEO Diego Deprati, “and I am confident it will be welcomed by the market just as it deserves.

Andrea Pezzini, Floating Life’s CEO, adds: “As in the K Series we are currently developing, on this project too we have focused our attention in particular on system efficiency and easy maintenance. We have channelled all our management expertise into the main characteristics that our customers have been asking for in our 16-year experience in this sector. Moreover, we have tried to make this project extremely versatile and able to cruise in any and all sea and weather conditions. The experience we gained building the K40 proved that we and CCN share common objectives, great care for product quality, and the same ethics and working philosophy towards our customers.
