Yacht Owner Praises Cantiere delle Marche

In Italy Cantiere delle Marche has sold Project 125.23, the motoryacht Aurelia 29.

Due for delivery to her owner in mid 2020, she is a one-off project commissioned by a repeating owner who has enjoyed very much both his Darwin Class 102 Galegoand the experience of building a yacht with the CdM’s team.

In his words: “Building a yacht at Cantiere delle Marche is like living a perfectly planned adventure with your best friends. The atmosphere around the project, the attention to even the smaller details and the dedication of every single member of the team are just incredible. My partner and I, after the delivery of our beloved Galego, often thought that we were really missing those days in Ancona with our friends at the yard.  Ennio, Vasco and Bruno are really managing the shipyard at the best and you never feel alone during the whole process.”

The project will feature both exterior lines and engineering by Hydro Tec and was designed in order to enable a young couple fond of art, design, classic cars but also fitness and leading an active life ashore to pursue their passions even when on vacation aboard their yacht.  As for the interior, details have not yet been disclosed, however, the owners are looking for pure elegance throughout her interiors and a timeless design. One main request from the interior design’s brief was that, “nothing should look as brand new or like a trendy top-class furniture’s showroom.”  

Named after the timeless Lancia Aurelia motor car the number 29 pays homage to the date when both the contracts for Galego and Aurelia were signed

Powered by twin Caterpillar C32 engines, the superyacht will have a maximum speed of 14 knots and a cruising speed of 10 knots, with a range at cruising speed of 5,000 nautical miles. She will also feature zero speed stabilisers.
