The Italian Pocket Explorer

On the 17th of June the Ancona based Italian shipyard Cantiere delle Marche announced the selling of their new Darwin Class expedition 86 just two months after the delivery of the Darwin Class 96 "Stella di Mare".

The Darwin Class 86 is designed and engineered by Hydro Tec's Sergio Cutolo and matches her older sisters standards and technical specifications. She has extra-thick steel plates, treatment systems for the bilge, black and grey water tanks used also on commercial ships for H24/365 work, remote controlled valves, automatic parallel device for gensets’ management and two independent rudders are only a few of the standard fetures she shares with her older sister.

The owner had the opportunity to customise the technical specifications and interior design where Pierluigi Floris created some unique spaces to home all of the owner's collection of contemporary art. The interiors of beige and gray were chosen to complement the strong gunmetal grey of the hull. The lower accommodation deck will be brighter than the standard Darwin Class 86 as the owner requested the portholes to be doubled up.

Ennio Cecchini, CdM shareholder and CEO, adds: "I personally experienced this long and exciting process that has brought us this success: I think the winning formula has been the full involvement of the client since the beginning, and I would like to thank him from all of us. It will be a very special Darwin Class, indeed and we are all looking forward to seeing it cruising the Oceans".
