Ancona-based Cantiere delle Marche shipyard has announced the launch of M/Y Gra Nil, the new 26m (86ft) Explorer vessel in steel and aluminium designed by Sergio Cutolo of Hydro Tec.
The yacht is the fifth delivery of the Darwin Class line, launched by the Shipyard in 2011.
Vasco Buonpensiere, Cantiere delle Marche shareholder and sales director comments: “This is a very important year for CdM. This is the fifth delivery from the beginning and comes after two signed contracts, so this is a wonderful way to celebrate CdM success and dynamism.”
Ennio Cecchini, CdM shareholder and CEO, adds: ”I personally experienced this long and exciting process that has brought us this success: I think the winning formula has been the full involvement of the client since the beginning, and I would like to thank him from all of us. It will be a very special Darwin Class indeed and we are all looking forward to seeing it cruising the Oceans.”
In addition, Cantiere delle Marche has announced the launch of Nauta Air 86 and Nauta Air 90, the first two explorer yachts of the new line CdM Nauta Air. Designed by Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of Nauta Yacht Design, these yachts will be launched by August 2014.
