New Model: Cantiere Delle Marche K42 Audace

In January 14th 2019, Cantiere delle Marche launched its largest build to date with K42 Audace successfully touching the water. K42 Audace is a surprising, extra-ordinary super yacht, whose shape and features are surely out of the ordinary. Audace fulfills her Owner's long-held project to commission a pure custom explorer yacht. Her Italian Owner will live on board all year round hence the need to create environments and amenities that perfectly fit his lifestyle. The project stems from a fruitful collaboration of all parts involved in its development and all players are as expert, innovative and respected as might be expected of such a complex project. For Cantiere delle Marche K42 Audace is a first. It is indeed the first pure custom explorer vessel the Ancona-based shipyard has ever built and, when it was commissioned, it represented for CdM the first step into a new segment of the market. The project brings the signature of Andrea Pezzini from Floating Life who developed the K series in conjunction with Mauro Sculli entrusted for the naval architecture. The project has been engineered by Sergio Cutolo of Hydro Tec. Project Manager for the yard is young and skilled Domenico Ranieri who worked in close collaboration with Andrea Pezzini from Floating Life who also acted as owner representative.  Spread on five deck, a large tank deck included, Audace has four guest cabins, two on the Lower deck with balconies, and two on the Main deck with direct access to the side passages. Nine berths for crew. The Owner apartment is on the highest level, above the Upper Deck. A professional galley allows two chefs to prepare meals for up to 250 guests. A Land Rover Defender, a BMW motorbike, water-ski, and a crew tender are stored on the forward deck while a large tender, hauled with a nine tons capacity crane, is on the Main deck aft. Two discotheques, one on the Lower deck and one on the Main deck, are fully equipped for dancing all night long.  Cantiere delle Marche is powered by twin Caterpillar 1450hp engines which allow for speeds up to 16 knots, and a cruise of ten which allows for a range up to 5400 nautical miles.
