CANTIERE DELLE MARCHE (CdM) recently celebrated the launch of Galego in its Ancona shipyard, the third unit in the 102ft Darwin Class explorer yacht series after Acala and Babbo. The ceremony marked the Italian shipyard’s first launch of the year.
Hydro Tec was responsible for the naval architecture of Galego, which was built in steel and aluminium, like every CdM yacht.
Customised features include the sun deck, which accommodates both a lounge area – with a sofa, up/down tables and a bar in the centre – and a fully equipped fitness area with a pool. The garage was designed to hold numerous toys and a diving centre. As the owner is tall, the height allowances were increased to 2.18m, with the doors and windows adjusted accordingly.
Ennio Cecchini, Co-founder and CEO of CdM, said: “After the successful debut of the first two Darwin Class 102’, Acala and Babbo, I am truly convinced that this model is indeed unique. With its 244grt and the intelligent layout, it is comparable to vessels measuring 115ft and more. I think this is precisely the key to the success we are seeking on a worldwide level.”
CdM has delivered 14 yachts and currently seven yachts from 102- 140ft are under construction.
