Stella del Nord, Cantiere delle Marche

Cantiere delle Marche has launched the sixth hull of the Darwin 86 line of Explorer Yachts.

26.1 metre Stella del Nord is the first model of the Darwin 2.0 series.

“Once again we credit much of the success of this project to the incredible harmony and synergy that has been created with the shipyard, the owner, the surveyor, and the captain” said says Vasco Buonpensiere, Sales and Marketing Director of Cantiere delle Marche.

Cantiere delle Marche CEO Ennio Cecchini said “In many years of yachting and shipyard neither my men nor I remember a launch of a boat at this level of quality and completion.”

The shipyard is currently building a Nauta Air 108, a Nauta Air 111 and a Darwin Class 102 and two contracts are going to be completed soon for another two Nauta Air 111.

The Darwin Class 102 will be delivered to an American client in September 2015.
