The RJ 115 Pazienza has been purchased by an Australian owner who was introduced to Cantiere delle Marche (CdM) Australia by Sean Madgwick and Scott Wellington-Stones of Yachtsmen International.

“We’re very pleased with the results that this range is delivering to us,” said Vasco Buonpensiere, CdM co-founder and CEO.

“It is a demonstration that style and elegance can be perfectly combined with the robust character typical of our explorer yachts. Regardless of the specific model or size, our explorer yachts are the right ticket to an unparalleled Australian coastal expedition and high seas journeys.

Pazienza is the third explorer yacht of the RJ series to be launched, following the RJ 130 Nuri and the RJ 115 Stellamar which recently debuted at the Cannes and Monaco Yacht Shows,” he continued.

“An RJ 155, is currently under construction at our facility in Ancona. The former owner of Nuri, who greatly enjoyed his RJ 130, acquired this larger version. This is a statement of trust in CdM and a source of pride for all of us.”


The RJ series of explorer yachts bears the unmistakable hallmark of the brilliant Florentine designer Francesco Paszkowski. His artistic touch is evident in the vessel’s exterior, characterized by a slender, rakish bow and a robust yet incredibly elegant profile adorned with generously sized side openings and windows.

The commitment to meeting owners’ desires and needs is at the core of the CdM philosophy, and this ethos is perfectly embodied by the RJ 115 Pazienza. This extraordinary project has been meticulously tailored to cater to the specific requirements of the owner. With six well-appointed guest cabins, the vessel promises a high level of luxury.



The main deck forward boasts a spacious owner’s suite with openable windows in both the cabin and office, ensuring a seamless connection with the surrounding seascape. Additionally, the lower deck features four guest cabins, each with its own ensuite facilities, while the upper deck offers a VIP cabin for added exclusivity.

One of the distinguishing features of the RJ 115 Pazienza is the seamless transition between its exterior and interior spaces.

The main saloon effortlessly opens onto the cockpit, and large doors on both sides of the dining area create a harmonious flow between the interior and exterior areas.

Similarly, the upper deck allows guests to step out onto the skylounge and the lobby, connecting with the exterior passageways and providing a unique experience of the open sea.

Great attention has been dedicated to the largest outdoor area on board, the sundeck, which offers owners and guests all sorts of amenities. A panoramic, luxurious Agata stone-clad swimming pool is located at the back of the deck.

The whole sundeck is impeccably decorated with premium finishes, including a spacious bar adorned with the exquisite Agata stone, mirroring the elegance of the pool, there is a dining area and, upfront, a dedicated relaxation area under the sun complete with comfortable seating and sun loungers.

In terms of functionality, the yacht is thoughtfully equipped with two tenders. One of these tenders is stowed on the upper deck’s stern terrace during long journeys and can be launched and retrieved with a concealed crane integrated into the sundeck overhang.

Additionally, a dedicated garage at the stern, with an opening hatch on the starboard side, accommodates the second tender along with various water toys, ensuring that guests can enjoy a wide range of activities.



Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini gave the interiors a compelling personality by skilfully harmonising a diverse palette of light and dark tones in veneers, panelling, marble, stone and upholstery.

In addition to elegantly crafted bespoke furniture, Pazienza’s interiors have been further enriched through the incorporation of a series of exquisite furniture pieces from distinguished manufacturers, such as the Maxalto and Flexform sofas and armchairs. An accurate study of artificial lighting emphasises interior spaces and exterior details.


The RJ 115 Pazienza is not just about luxury and style, however, it also boasts impressive technical specifications.

With a cruising range of more than 5,500 nautical miles, this vessel is ready to embark on epic journeys to the farthest corners of our planet. The redundancy of technical equipment ensures the highest level of safety, even in the most remote and challenging areas of the world’s oceans.

The vessel’s efficient naval architecture, designed by Hydro Tec, combined with CAT C18 engines, translates into modest fuel consumption, reflecting CdM’s eco-conscious approach to yachting.

Pazienza is a show-stopper in the true sense of the word,” says Paul Miletta, who together with Domenico Giuffrè runs CdM Australia.

“The owner wanted to create a wow factor, and certainly did. It has been a privilege to work alongside the owners, CdM’s team and Yachtsmen International to design and build the RJ 115 Pazienza.

Pazienza is an attractive combination of vitality and glamour, while securing the true DNA of an explorer.

“We look forward to showcasing Pazienza on Australian shores. CdM is redefining the concept of superyachts in Australia, with many owners now understanding why a steel hull is required to safely and comfortably explore the South Pacific.”

Sean Madgwick, Managing Director at Yachtsmen International, said the new owner is a long-time client and a seasoned yacht owner. “He was looking for a large-volume cruising superyacht for extensive travelling and Cantiere delle Marche was ideal.

“CdM provides a good mix of beautifully crafted interiors, high-quality construction and technical credentials to a commercial standard. Pazienza will eventually be based on the Gold Coast, and the owner has plans to cruise widely.”

The RJ 115 Pazienza is a masterpiece of maritime design and engineering, offering its owner and guests a sublime blend of luxury, functionality, and safety on their voyages across the world’s oceans.

With its thoughtful layout, attention to detail, and unmatched style, it is a vessel that truly caters to the desires and needs of those seeking the ultimate explorer yacht experience.
