Cantiere delle Marche has announced the launch of Acala, a Darwin Class 102. This Explorer yacht in steel and aluminium will be presented during the next Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Built for a Central American client who has a significant experience dealing with the most prestigious Northern European shipyards, Acala is the result of a close collaboration between the staff of the CdM and the owner’s team of consultants.
The yacht features many specific customizations, including the lazarette, equipped like a real diving station with a nitrox compressor, five cabins layout with the master cabin forward, doors of the two saloon that can open completely, air conditioning even in the outdoor areas etc.
Thanks to the increased spaces in the swim platform, the yacht can accommodate two tenders unusually big for a yacht this size: a tender custom built by Mc Mullen and Wing of 20′, and a second of 16′.
With a capacity to accommodate up to seven crewmembers, great attention was paid to the spaces for the crew in five guest cabins.
The interiors are designed by South American designer Simon Hamui that, who has worked with the yacht owner on some of his houses and offices.
In addition to the boats that will be launched this year, Cantiere delle Marche is currently building a Nauta Air 108, a Nauta Air 111 and a Darwin Class 102. Besides, the shipyard is concluding two contracts for another Darwin Class 102 and other two Nauta Air 111 based on two different naval platforms, one of 299 GRT and another of 330 GRT.
