The Italian shipyard Cantiere delle Marche is to present Stella di Mare their new 30-metre steel and aluminium Explorer vessel at the Cannes Boat Show next month
Built in Ancona to the designs of Sergio Cutolo at Hydro Tec, Stella di Mare has been designed and engineered to satisfy specific owner’s requirements.
He and his large family will cruise extensively the Mediterranean Sea, and they will eventually cross the Atlantic Ocean for an extended voyage through US East Coast and the Caribbean.
The owner is a hands on sailor who is passionate about yachts. He loves piloting his own boat and spends a lot of time in the wheelhouse. For this reason, and in order to let him share his experience and time with his family and friends, the builder has created a custom sky lounge, open on the wheelhouse.
When cruising at night it can be isolated by a rollaway screen to avoid the interference of light and reflections on the wheelhouse windows.
The Darwin Class 96’ is different from previous yachts of the same line in many ways:
- The Interior volumes are 10 sqm bigger
- VIP cabin is 1.50 metres longer
- The Garage is 10 sqm bigger
- The Sundeck has been enlarged to 50 sqm
- Main deck is longer
- Crew area accommodates 6
The garage contains 4 bikes, 2 of them electric, with their recharge battery station.
Her twin MTU 8V 2000 M72/720 Kw engines give 13.5 knots of speed at reduced levels of consumption, and particular attention has been given to the insulation and noise control, using a custom designed system which will reduce noise dramatically.
Designed by architect Pierluigi Floris, the interiors are contemporary, linear and very luminous, with a total white lower deck enriched by details in essence. Natural Elm and open pore white Elm are the main essences, with Travertino marbles throughout the Vessel.
