A Legacy of Craftsmanship and Exploration

Nestled in the picturesque coastal town of Ancona on Italy’s Adriatic Coast, Cantiere delle Marche (CdM) has established itself as a premier shipyard specializing in constructing long-range luxury explorer yachts. With a focus on semi-custom and custom designs ranging from 26 to 45 meters in length, CdM has garnered international acclaim for its exceptional craftsmanship and dedication to creating vessels embodying the spirit of exploration.

A Decade of Excellence: History of Cantiere delle Marche

Founded in 2010 by a group of veteran shipbuilders, for the first eight years of its existence, CdM focused on two exceptional product lines, the traditional explorer Darwin Class yachts and the contemporary Nauta Air line (now discontinued). The remarkable success of these lines propelled CdM to be listed among Boat International’s top 20 boat builders in 2018.

Expanding Horizons: New Lines and Custom Projects

In 2020, CdM introduced a rugged new line, the Flexplorer series, with the launch of Aurelia, Flexplorer 130. This 40-meter vessel combines yacht styling and accommodation with the capability of a shadow vessel. This series allows owners to explore remote destinations while carrying a significant tender. The Flexplorer line has since expanded, with three Flexplorer 146 currently in build.

In addition to its semi-custom offerings, CdM excels in custom projects. Notable among them is Project K42 Audace, CdM’s first all-custom explorer yacht, boasting a length overall (LOA) of 42.8 meters and a registered tonnage of 450 GT. This impressive vessel, developed in collaboration with Floating Life, was launched in January 2019. Another noteworthy custom project is the 42-meter explorer Crowbridge, designed by Tommaso Spadolini, featuring naval architecture and engineering by Hydro Tec. In 2022 CdM launched Acala, a 42m custom project by Horacio Bozzo complemented by interiors designed by Simon Hamui, which won the World Superyacht Award 2023. Two custom yachts are currently under construction at CdM’s Ancona facility, a 45-meter by Giorgio M. Cassetta and EXP43 by Paszkowski.

Celebrating Milestones: Notable CdM Superyachts and Award Winners

CdM has marked several significant milestones throughout its journey. In 2013, the Darwin Class 96 Stella di Mare (now Lyubov’P) made a captivating debut. This rugged explorer yacht, measuring 29.5 meters, features a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, with twin MTU 8V M72 diesel engines that provide an impressive range of 5,900 nautical miles at 10 knots.

The launch of the Nauta Air 86 YOLO (now Rosey) in June 2014 marked the beginning of the Nauta Air series. Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of Nauta Design designed this 27.15-meter aluminum yacht accommodates ten guests in four staterooms and four crew members in two cabins. With a range of 3,200 nautical miles at 9 knots, the Nauta Air 86 YOLO set the foundation for the subsequent expansion of the line, including the 90-foot Noga (now Icon) and the benchmark 111-foot Hyhmä, which completed a voyage through the Northwest Passage.

CdM’s first project exceeding 100 feet in length was the Darwin Class 107, delivered in July 2015, boasting an impressive 300 GT rating. Following this achievement, the shipyard unveiled the Darwin Class Narvalo, a 108-foot explorer yacht, in 2016, which received a special award for Quality & Value at the 2017 World Superyacht Awards. Another notable vessel, the Nauta Air 110 Mimi la Sardine, delivered in 2018, received accolades at both Boat International’s Design Awards and the World Superyacht Awards, further solidifying CdM’s reputation for excellence.

Pioneering the Future: CdM’s Unwavering Leadership

As CdM celebrated its first decade of business in 2021, the shipyard’s semi-custom lines have coalesced around the Darwin Class model platforms at 92, 102 and 112 feet, the Flexplorer at 130 and 146 feet, and the RJ series based on platforms at 115 and 130 feet. Alongside these established lines, CdM remains committed to crafting bespoke yachts that cater to their discerning clients’ unique visions and desires.

With the addition of new offerings and an unwavering commitment to quality, Cantiere delle Marche continues to lead the industry, setting new standards in the construction of extraordinary explorer vessels. Embark on a remarkable journey of exploration with CdM and experience the epitome of luxury and adventure.
