Italy. Cantiere delle Marche announces new sale with contract for a Nauta Air …


After the recent presentation of its new range of displacement and semi-displacement Explorer Yachts, designed by Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of Nauta Yacht Design, the Ancona based shipyard announces the first important result, that confirms the quality of its products and of its commercial approach towards a global market.

After just a few week from the presentation of its new Nauta Air range, Cantiere delle Marche announces the sale of the first Nauta Air 86’. This Explorer Yacht in aluminium that combines durable substance, seaworthy performance and low fuel consumption with airy, contemporary design and wide exterior space and surprising volumes .

CdM Nauta Air is the result of the collaboration between Architect Mario Pedol, founder, along with Massimo Gino, of the renowned Milan-based design studio Nauta Yacht Design, and CdM. Nauta Air offers the perfect blend of the luxury and style of superyachts with the sturdy substance that characterizes Cantiere delle Marche’s yachts such as the Darwin Class Explorers, protagonists at the next Boat Shows of the season.

With the new Nauta Air range, Cantiere delle Marche has established its name as a byword for evolution in the conception of its yachts, projected for a global target. This range of vessels can modify their spatial layout without changing their nautical DNA, making their owner’s dreams come true in waters anywhere in the world.

The new sale for a Nauta Air (the seventh CdM Explorer Yacht sold in less than 24 months) represents the confirmation of the effectiveness of CdM global sales policy: this new contract comes in fact just after three months from the partnership’s agreement of the shipyard with Lee Marine for the distribution of CdM Yachts in the Asia-Pacific markets. In addition, Cantiere delle Marche is going to finalize other two sale contracts for a client in Germany and a client in Israel. Joshua Lee, Managing Director of Lee Marine comments:”The team at CDM and Nauta design have been outstanding from the first meeting and were able to meet every need of the client. A very enjoyable experience indeed. This range will enjoy great success in today’s new market and we are proud to have sold the first one”.

Particularly, the client, an Australian citizen with Thai residence, has chosen a Nauta Air 86’ – modifying the original Nauta Air 80’ project – as the boat that will let him sail the Indian Ocean in safety, cruising range and comfort and entertain his friends and guests thanks to the wide exterior spaces and volumes.

The owner comments:”Unlike any expedition yacht I have ever seen in this size, the Nauta Air 86 has stylish lines making her refined and elegant looking while remaining a true blue water cruiser. I am totally satisfied and proud of the customization and I am sure this will make my first custom yacht exremely comfortable. I can honestly say that the team at CDM, expecially Ennio and Vasco, have made this a smooth process and been very attentive to all of my queries and countless questions. The CDM factory is a wonderful new facility with a really great team on board, i got the feeling that everyone is a giant extended family. I am looking forward to the next 18 months and building the perfect boat, also a lot more of those long Italian lunches!”.

Thanks to the highest level of customization that CdM offers to its clients, the owner was able to define, together with the shipyard’s team and the designers, the project’s layout: for example, the 50 smq panoramic fly bridge is specifically designed for the outdoor living. It has a sun area and a spacious al fresco lounge, all communicating. Regarding the interior layout, the access to the owner’s suite has been separated from the general entrance to the lower deck and cabins. A private escalier on the main deck directly leads to the wide owner’s suite, giving a total privacy.

Nauta Air yachts have been designed following a new proportion and a different balance of the interiors and exteriors architecture. They are actually in direct visual contact thanks to a wide use of clear glass in both windows and doors. As an example, the kitchen on the main deck has been designed to communicate both with the inside and the outside: that’s why the main salon has been positioned in the centre of the boat following a formal and precise division of the space: conversation, relax and dining area.

Vasco Buonpensiere, SalesMarketing Director of CdM comments:”I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people working at Cantiere delle Marche. There is no doubt that each and every client and consultants who are stepping into the yard and/or on our boats immediatly percieve the highest level of quality and finishing available for this size of boat worldwide. And this is the result of the efforts that everyone at the yard is making day after day, restlessly’. And adds: ‘What Nauta Design has achieved in translating our brief into the Air range, is close to perfection: boats with a lot of character while maintaing the simplicity and the cleanliness of their lines. Boats expressing a Roaring Elegance, indeed.


The groundwork of solid values that sets the Cantiere delle Marche shipyard apart is provided by the expert group of firms and professionals brought together by the Cecchini family, renowned throughout the years in the shipbuilding industry for having constructed high-technology commercial ships and carried out challenging refitting projects, including the mega-yachts Lady Haya (67 metres) and Prometej (45 metres), plus more recent efforts involving highly refined Explorer Vessels.

Working alongside the Cecchini family in the company’s top management is Massimo Virgili, the Ancona entrepreneur who owns the shipyard previously utilised by the Ferretti Group and built only three years ago for the specific purpose of turning out large-size yachts.

Ennio Cecchini, the Managing Director of the Cantiere delle Marche shipyard, has also chosen Vasco Buonpensiere as the Director of Sales Marketing on his management team, on the strength of the executive’s lengthy experience as an international broker and on his 6 years service as Marketing Director and Brand Manager for Custom Line and CRN of the Ferretti Group.

The Cantiere delle Marche shipyard draws on the skills of acclaimed professionals in the field of design, such as Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of Nauta Design, as well as on the planning and engineering advances developed by Sergio Cutolo. These are combined with important internal know-how, provided by a network of highly successful firms that belong to its corporate group, such as CPN for steel carpentry, piping and the engine assemblies, and the companies held by Maurizio Gasparroni for interior design which, working hand in hand with the shipyard’s staff, have built dozens of ships and yachts admired throughout the world.
