The 42.8-metre explorer yacht Audace is no-nonsense, purpose-built explorer yacht from Cantiere delle Marce and was commissioned by an experienced Italian owner who lives aboard the vessel year-round. Launched in Ancona last year, Studio Sculli designed the new exterior and interior together with Floating Life while Sergio Cutolo from HydroTec supplied the superyacht’s engineering. Built for life at sea, the yacht’s four-deck layout, including a large tank deck, can accommodate guests in four staterooms; two on the lower deck with balconies and two on the main deck with direct access to the side passages. The 490 GT Audace is equipped with a Land Rover Defender, a BMW motorbike, water-ski, and crew tender, which are all stored on the forward deck. A larger tender, launched with a nine-ton crane, is located on the main deck aft.
