This new contract has been signed for the construction of the motor yacht Darwin Class 96’ (29,50 mt.) designed by Sergio Cutolo, which it is going to be delivered in 2015 to a very knowledgeable and expert South American Client. This result comes after the sales activities carried out during the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show 2013: with this contract, CdM has now 6 yachts in its pipeline to be delivered in 2014 and 2015.

Even if the new Darwin Class 96’ superyacht can be considered a sistership of the reknown M/Y Stella di Mare, which has been also nominated at the 2014 Motor Boat of the Year award, it will show all the new features of what the shipyard calls the Darwin 2.0 style: the bigger windows both on the main and the upper deck salons, recesses in the bulwarks to enjoy the view from the interiors of the Yacht, bigger and differently shaped windows for the cabins, the galley and the crew mess, and a sleeker bow.

Technically speaking, the main difference from the sistership is the choice of Caterpillar engines instead of the MTU engines chosen by the owner of Stella di Mare yacht: they will be Cat C18 Acert – 500 Kw (680 HP) @ 1800 RPM – Heavy Duty Rated – and will push the vessel at 13 knots with 4.500 nautical miles of range at 10 knots.

All those technical details which have characterized and created the success of the CdM production are obviously mantained: 12 mm A grade carbon steel for the hull, cupro nickel piping, independent rudders, automatic parallel between generators, standard electric stabilization system, bilge oil separator, and all those redudancies and overengineering which have set immediately CdM in the highest spot of its segment.

Not much can be disclosed for the moment about the interior and exterior arrangements and style which are going to be designed with the Client’s personal interior designer. For the time being just a few information are available: the owner and the project managers are working on the lazzarette, that will be equipped with a real diving station with also a nitrox compressor and the transom will show an Opacmare Transformer platform. The interior lay out will have 5 cabins (one master, two VIP and two guests) with the possibility to accomodate 6 crew on the main deck and the public areas will be designed in order to cater an important number of family members and guest in an informal but very functional and luxurious way.
