Floating Life place order with CCN
Floating Life Charter & Brokerage have chosen CCN, Cerri Cantiere Navali, as the builder of a new M/Y K40 for an American client.
The 40 metre Light Ice Class expedition yacht has been developed by Studio Sculli of Sarzana. Construction will begin later this month.
The choice of CCN – Cerri Cantieri Navali is the result of a selection process involving ten yards worldwide” said Floating Life CEO Andrea Pezzini, contract manager of the project. “What tipped the scales was not only an excellent quality to price ratio, but above all the yard’s willingness to examine a completely custom project created to be able to undertake a voyage around the world.”
During the design process the primary guidelines were determined based on the owner’s specific requests. These have resulted in an almost 41 meter yacht with a maximum beam of 9 meters. The hull will be made of steel, reinforced to meet Light Ice Class requirements, while the superstructure will be in aluminum.
The hull was designed using a sophisticated fluid dynamics computer program, followed by tank testing in the Göteborg facilities (SSPA), where the design choices were confirmed.
Diego Michele Deprati, CEO of CCN said: “I’m really very happy that Floating Life Charter & Brokerage decided to choose us from among the many international yards considered for this kermess.”
