[...] commented Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and Sales & Marketing Director of CdM. “We are particularly proud of this sale because it strengthens our presence on the other side of the pond."Photo: Cantiere delle marcheHe continued, "It follows the sale of another Darwin 102, Babbo, which we sold just a couple of weeks ago and another second hand CdM explorer yacht is about to be sold. No need to add any comment. The CdM’s Pre-owned Sales Department results go even beyond our more optimistic expectations.”Photo: Cantiere delle MarcheAt the time of being listed as a yacht for sale, the last known asking price for Acala was $7,750,000 and she spent 504 days on the market prior to the sale.Photo: Cantiere delle marche
