Cantiere Delle Marche Reveals EXP 42 Explorer Yacht Model
by Miranda Blazeby
Italian yard Cantiere delle Marche has revealed a new range of explorer yachts fronted by the 42.58 metre EXP 42 model.
Penned by Francesco Paszkowski, the yacht will be built from a steel hull and light aluminium superstructure, with exterior lines of an “elegant, awe-inspiring beauty”.
With an 8.6 metre beam and robust displacement hull, the yacht is described as “imposing, bold and distinctive” by the yard.
Exterior deck spaces are plentiful, with pools on both the sun and main decks aft. The large cockpit is surrounded by fold down balconies while the upper saloon features a “bright and airy veranda”. The tender and Jet Skis are stored on the main deck forward while a large lazarette holds numerous water toys. Alternatively, this area can be converted into a gym if the owner desires.
The interior layout is described as “highly customisable” to each owner’s tastes and needs. A number of layouts are available, including a six guest cabin version intended for charter. All guest suites are of the same size, with four VIP cabins on the main deck and two on the lower deck.
A more traditional layout is also available, which places the large owner’s apartment forward of the main deck. The four guest suites are located on the lower deck alongside the “immense” crew quarters.
The six cabin version sees the large galley located on the lower deck, while the traditional layout places it on the main deck. Ample storage is found throughout the boat to facilitate long periods of time at sea.
Vasco Buonpensiere, CdM’s sales and marketing director, said the model offered “the best of two worlds," allowing owners to "cruise around the world comfortably and safely and in style.”
He added: “An explorer yacht isn’t about its shape, it’s about its reliability, its range, its storage capacity and its ability to face any weather condition in comfort and safety,”
It comes after CdM launched the 42 metre explorer yacht Crowbridge last month.
