Based on Italy’s Adriatic coast, Cantiere delle Marche is backed by a group of experienced managers and craftsmen.
The shipyard builds all of its boats—the Darwin 86, 102, 107 and eventually the 112—to superyacht standards and to class. Well-known naval architect Sergio Cutolo of Hydro Tec designed and engineered the Darwin Class for passionate owners seeking to fulfill their dream of a safe adventure at sea. His hull design boasts a high bow and low fuel consumption yielding exceptional range.
Cantiere delle Marche likes to point out that it uses extra-thick steel plates, cupronickel piping (a high-quality copper alloy resistant to corrosion in sea water), zero-speed stabilizers and remotely controlled valves as standard equipment on its vessels. Two independent rudders ensure excellent maneuverability, and efficient systems for the treatment of black, grey and bilge water make the yachts environmentally friendly. The well-designed engine rooms exemplify the pride this yard takes in work well done.
Seeking a little diversification to appeal to a wider market segment, Cantiere delle Marche also worked with Mario Pedol of Nauta Design to develop another line of long-range cruisers. Nauta Air 90-, 108-, 111- and 130-foot models share the platform used for the Darwin Class, but have significantly different exterior styling.
Also the new Acciaio range is worth of attention. These are elegant explorer type yachts with a stylish, modern exterior as well as concise design of the interiors. Currently available models in 32 and 37 meters with construction period up to 22 months.
