03 December 2020


Cantiere delle Marche has announced the formation of Cantiere delle Marche Australia, together with Domenico Giuffrè and Paul Miletta. The team of marine professionals has expertise in international yacht sales, boasting over 100 motor yachts imported into Australia.

“Having represented CdM buyers in the past and with a Darwin-class explorer due to arrive in Australian waters before Christmas, we are truly excited to be joining this amazing team and shipyard. They combine technical solutions with award-winning designs for a product that does not have competition,” said Domenico Giuffrè.

The Darwin 102 Babbo (launched in 2016) has been purchased by an Aussie owner who renamed her TrueBlue, and it is heading to Australia.

“With our commitment to the existing CdM family and the great opportunity to introduce new clientele, we look forward to offering a new level of safe and luxurious adventures throughout the South Pacific,” said Paul Miletta.

CdM Australia’s office will temporarily be based at Sydney Superyacht Marina and will move to a new venue shortly.


“We have decided to strengthen our presence in the Pacific by creating Cantiere delle Marche Australia,” said Vasco Buonpensiere, Sales and Marketing Director of CdM.

“Having served different roles in the superyacht industry in Italy and Australia, their team offer the highest standard of customer service that aligns with the values and tradition of CdM. Their vast knowledge of the market and the country makes Domenico and Paul ideal partners for CdM.”

“Our explorer yachts are appreciated all over the world and our clients are spread in all continents, Oceania included,” continues Buonpensiere.

Buonpensiere continued, “We already have many Aussie owners who are making the most out of our explorer yachts’ qualities and we have witnessed a growing interest from a clientele who lives and travels in the Southern Hemisphere.”

“As soon as the pandemic will let us breathe, we will attend boat shows in Australia and the Far East and organise special events to strengthen our presence in the area.”
