K40 project Kanga

Construction of new 41m K40, project Kanga, progresses well at CCN shipyard in Italy.

Cerri Cantieri Navali (CCN) and Floating Life have announced that construction of K40, project Kanga, progresses well.

K40 motoryacht Kanga is the first hull of the Series K, a “light ice class” explorer yacht commissioned to Floating Life by an American owner in October 2015 with the precise goal of long cruising around the world all the way up to the Poles.

First of two new constructions already sold, K40 is a 41m, four-deck motoryacht designed to be extremely reliable and easy to handle, the shipyard claims. The vessel features  a full beam of 9.4m.

The hull is in steel, reinforced for the ‘Light Ice’ class while the superstructure is in aluminium, without exceeding 500gt

Work in progress

CNN has reported that since January 2016, when works began, the construction timeline has been perfectly attended with all the foreseen steps respected.

As of January 2017, the hull has been fully optimized and the internal partition on the lower deck has been started. The superstructure (main deck) is now in place.

The shaft line alignment was performed and the installation of the flooring steel supports in the accommodation areas has been started. Meantime, the piping alignment has been started as well.

The completion of the fitting out works was started at end of December, and will be completed in the coming year.

The initial project of the K40 has been greatly modified to meet the owner’s requirements, especially to what refers to the interior decoration, which has been a collaborative work with Studio Sculli.

CCN, which has been part of the Gavio Group since 2011, specializes in the construction of high-performing planing fibreglass yachts ranging from 26m-31m (86’ft-102ft).
