Cerri Cantieri Navali (CCN), part of Italy’s Gavio Group, launched the new DOM 123 superyacht model at the Versilia Yachting Rendez-Vous in Viareggio last week. The new 37m (123ft) design is the first of several new models in the DOM range, which already includes a 33.5m (108ft) yacht.

CCN CEO Diego Michele Deprati hinted during a press briefing that the company is close to signing its first contract for the DOM 123 and that building will start later this year. “We are planning other models in this series with a smaller 30m one and probably a larger one in time,” he said.

The DOM 123 is a semi-custom yacht with a series of layouts for the guest areas and cabins. At the briefing, CCN presented 16 different options including one with five cabins and one with six.

CCN is part of the yachting division of the Gavio Group, a leading industrial business with interests in the IT, transport, logistics, motorways and energy sectors. The yachting division’s main business is Baglietto, which builds superyachts up to 70m (230ft), with CCN and the Bertram brand as subsidiaries.

CCN, which is based at Marina Carrara close to La Spezia where Baglietto is located, has three models in build that are close to delivery and a CCN 31m due for completion in 2019.

The three being delivered this year are a CCN 102, a Freedom 27 and the K40 model Kanga being built in association with Floating Life.
