Cantiere delle Marche (CdM) has signed a contract for the construction of a Nauta Air 111. The yacht was sold by Zarpo Yachts for a Latin American client.

The news follows the sale of a Darwin Class 102, which the shipyard announced just two weeks ago.

CdM has recruited for this project an international team. Dutch firm Vripack will be in charge of the naval engineering of the project, while Nauta Yachts Design of Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino will sign the exterior and interior design. Both have also drawn all the yachts of the Nauta Air range.

Few details have been disclosed about the construction of this project, but CdM says the yacht will reach approximately 330 GRT in volume with an 8-metre beam.

Cantiere delle Marche CEO Ennio Cecchini comments: “The Nauta Air range represents for us the combination of the luxury and the contemporary style of a superyacht together with the solidity and reliability of an explorer yacht. Two values that are perfectly embodied by the two partners involved in the project: Nauta Yachts with which we gave birth to this new range of yachts and Vripack, whose experience in designing yachts capable of extreme navigation is unparalleled.”

The new yacht, flagship of the range Nauta Air, is scheduled for delivery in 2017 to an experienced owner who has a great passion for underwater photography, scientific research and the study of marine animals. For this, the yacht will be designed and built to provide long permanence on board and autonomy from the shore.

“She will feature a CFD optimised hull with bulbous bow and enhanced scantlings on the hull and rudders for sailing in ice conditions. We look forward of becoming part of the CdM Family and friends group,” concludes Vripack director Marnix Hoekstra.
