Worth Avenue Yachts has been named the official representative of the Italian boatbuilder Cantiere delle Marche (CDM) in North, Central and South America.

Based in Palm Beach, Worth Avenue Yachts will represent the Darwin Class series including the 26m (85ft), 29m (95ft) and the 32m (105ft) as well as the Nauta Air series, including the 28m (92ft), 29m and 35m (115ft).

“We are very excited to introduce these semi-custom, large-volume vessels to the Americas,” says Simon Gibson, managing member of Worth Avenue Yachts. “These are true bluewater yachts, ready for any ocean conditions and the ultimate new solution for our clients.”

Open since August 2010, the Ancona-based shipyard CDM has sold and delivered the Darwin Series 86 and 96 hulls 1, 2 and 3. Contracts are pending for the Darwin Series 86 hull 4 to be delivered in March 2013 and a 105 to be delivered in 2014. The Nauta Air 115 hull 1 and a 105 are also scheduled to be delivered in 2014.

Worth Avenue Yachts currently has a Darwin Class 86 under contract and a statement claims: “Interest from North, Central and South America has been strong.”

“The Americas have proven to be a solid arena for these distinguished yachts,” says Gibson.

CDM and Worth Avenue Yachts are exhibiting at Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show, which runs until 31 October.

Worth Avenue Yachts offers brokerage, charter, purchasing, sales and new construction services.
