New Model: Cantiere Delle Marche Accaio 123

On a rainy September morning, a very private yet cheerful ceremony celebrated the launching of the Acciaio 123. This is the second unit in the Acciaio series built by CdM, the first being the Acciaio 105 launched in 2018. Both yachts bring the signature of Sergio Cutolo from Hydro Tec who was entrusted also for the naval architecture and engineering. Impeccably contemporary in her exterior line that elegantly clothes a robust explorer vessel body, the Acciaio 123 blinks an eye to the past with high-end, timeless and sophisticated interiors developed by Cantiere delle Marche in-house design department in conjunction with the owners.  Leveraging on CdM's experience in the construction of explorer yachts renowned for their sea-keeping and long range, the Acciaio 123 boast generous and extremely comfortable interior spaces spread on three decks plus a large sun deck to host to the highest standards, up to twelve guests in five cabins and seven crew members. For all its characteristics, the Acciaio 123 is an explorer vessel for owners to enjoy the best of ocean exploring in full safety and comfort.  The Main deck layout, with a wide-body configuration, grants extra space to all environments from amidship to forward. This means that both the galley, located to port side, and the Owners stateroom which occupies the forward section of the deck, are extremely large with the latter enjoying an extremely high level of comfort and livability for a yacht of her size.  In an age where eco-friendly attitude is becoming more important also in the yachting industry, at 37.35 metres, with a beam of 7.80m and a displacement of 320t, the Acciaio 123 has two Caterpillar engines of just 533kW each which allow for a top speed of 13 knots and a range, at 10 knots, of 5,500 nautical miles. These remarkable figures are obtained thanks to Hydro Tec full-displacement hull design featuring a smooth distribution of the lines which provides significant reduction of resistance and excellent seaworthiness.  A proper explorer, the Acciaio 123 has large storage to navigate for thousands of miles without the need for any stop for provisioning. The technical spaces are as usual CdM’s feather in the cap for the machinery and equipment, piping and cabling, and their outstanding levels of spaciousness, brightness and meticulously designed layout that allows easy handling and maintenance. Top-end machinery and redundancy in equipment are not there to make Captain and engineer’s life easier, they are testament to the yard’s core mission to make navigation of its explorers in far and remote areas of the globe as safe as possible.
