New Model: Cantiere Delle Marche 86 Darwin

Cantiere Delle Marche launched hull one of the 86 Darwin, the first in a series of explorer type 24 meters plus in size super yacht.  The 86 Darwin was designed by Sergio Cutolo for the external lines and all the engineering, while architects Floris and Veglia are responsible for the interiors. For the external lines Sergio Cutolo as his experience in explorer type yachts suggests puts strong references to the proportions and style of work boats, with a soft but "masculine" draft where the use of sharp edges are almost abandoned. With a length of 26 meters overall and a beam of over seven meters the 86 Darwin has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure and is characterized by internal volumes typical of larger boats.  She has over 350 squared meters of internal and external surfaces available in three decks for eight guests in four cabins. From a technical standpoint, the hull has been developed and optimized in order to ensure the achievement of high speed, relatively to the type of boat, without penalizing the performance at low speeds at which the maximum value of autonomy is realized. With two 384hp Cat engines the 86 Darwin can reach a top speed of 11 knots, and a cruise of ten can give a 7000 nautical miles range.  The Cantiere delle Marche is currently building a second 86 Darwin, which will be delivered before the end of the year and there are advanced negotiations for future boats.
