Cantiere Delle Marche’s Darwin Class 95...

Yard Updates

The first one was sold last year and construction is well underway.

SEPTEMBER 2011

Having been busy over the past year building the first three of its steel/aluminium Darwin 86 explorers, the first of which was shown at Cannes ’12, the new Ancona, Italy-based yachtbuilder Cantiere Delle Marche is now progressing well with the first Darwin Class 95.
Pushed along at up to 13.5 knots by twin Caterpillar C18s, this model has a 200m² (2,151ft²) interior by Pierluigi Floris and Marco Veglia; not to mentiona 195m² (2,098ft²) of exterior space.
The yard’s Darwin Class models were drawn and engineered by Sergio Cutolo (Hydro Tec). And all four boats – the three 86s and one 95 – are sold, according to Vasco Buonpensiere, the yard’s sales and marketing director, who incidentally was formerly marketing director and brand manager for the Ferretti Group’s Custom Line and CRN operations.
Cantiere delle Marche’s managing director is Ennio Cecchini.
