Italian yard Cantiere delle Marche (CdM) has signed a contract to build a new 40-metre displacement superyacht in partnership with Camper & Nicholsons.
The steel and aluminium yacht, currently known as Project MG 129, has been commissioned by a European owner and will be fully equipped to explore the globe without any restrictions. Francesco Paszkowski will be responsible for her exterior and interior design, while naval architecture will come from Hydrotec.
Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and sales and marketing director at CdM, commented, “It is a great pleasure to work with an owner who was keen to bring his experience to CdM. By deciding to have his new yacht built by CdM he offered a serious statement of trust in our yard's reliability and construction quality.”
On-board accommodation will be for up to 12 guests across five suites, while the crew quarters will house up to seven crewmembers.
Power will come from twin heavy-duty MTU engines 10V2000M72, delivering 900kW each and allowing for a top speed of 14.5 knots.
