Cantiere delle March launches Storm

Explorer Yacht Storm, a Darwin Class 107, was launched yesterday in Ancona by Italian shipyard Cantiere delle Marche.

The 32.7 metre vessel is scheduled to be delivered to her English owner in August 2015.

This is the first delivery over 100 feet made by the shipyard. CDM will now commence a series of launches of yachts all above 100 feet; two Darwin Class 102′, one Nauta Air 108′ and one Nauta Air 111.

Vasco Buonpensiere, Sales and Marketing manager of Cantiere delle Marche said “There is no doubt that the baptism of Storm marks an important moment for all those who work here, as well as for the owner.”

“Building this yacht was exciting in every respect: the synergy between shipowner and crew, the goals shared by them and the whole CDM team, and the driving force created by a common passion for the explorer ship and the quality of the construction details has really created a special ship” said Ennio Cecchini, CEO of Cantiere delle Marche. “With its 300 gross registered tonnage, it is not comparable to any other boat of the same length. We look forward to being able to present to the press this Yacht in detail: every corner of Storm is a surprise in terms of engineering and quality .”

Storm will be officially presented at the Cannes Boat Show in September.
