New Model: Cantiere delle Marche Flexplorer 146

Cantiere delle Marche has on Thursday 23rd November launched its new largest build to date the Flexplorer 146.  Titled m/y Maverick this is the first of three 146's and second model to launch of the Flexplorer line, which debuted in the fall of 2020 with the 40m.  This second four meter larger Flexplorer 146 unlike the first unit comes from a design of Sergio Cutolo, who still created a sober and similar line to the Paszkowski designed smaller sister.  The Flexplorer 146 is also full of technical features including the superb and praised integrated A-class frame crane with a lifting capacity up to 4.4 tons which debuted with the Flexplorer 40m, and an ice belt hull structure of 22 mm thickness above and below the waterline.  Flexplorer 146 hull one features interiors designed by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casperini who presented an accommodation layout for ten/twelve guests in five cabins; with a master stateroom located to forward of the main deck, and four  double guest cabins on the lower deck.  Crew accommodation is for nine in five cabins; three cabins plus mess forward of the lower deck, a captains cabin behind the wheel house on the upper deck, and an engineers cabin at midships to forward port side of the engine room.  Cantiere delle Marche Flexplorer 146 features a lengthened hull of the 40m which launched in the fall of 2020, a Sergio Cutolo designed full displacement bulbous bow and active fin stabilizers shape, for comfortable long range cruise up to five thousand nautical miles, and fourteen knots top speeds from twin Cats 1014hp.
