In these past few months, an impressive number of CdM’s explorer yachts has been sold, the most recent being an Acciaio 130, the third unit of a semi-custom series with design and naval architecture by Sergio Cutolo/Hydro Tec (the two previous units are Acciaio 105 Gatto and Acciaio 123 Astrum).

“We are delighted with the client’s strong interest in this design which brought to a high level of customisation and interesting features,” says Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and Sales and Marketing Director of CdM.

“Acciaio 130 will be a purposeful passagemaker tailored to the exacting requirements of her owner for long range cruising. The client has been introduced by Jonacor Marine and in the light of the high level of professionalism of all parts involved we are sure that the construction of this beautiful vessel will represent a great experience for us all.”

The Acciaio 130 features an imposing and flared bow to intercept high seas with the sheer line that smoothly flows down creating a sophisticated yachting style.


This flowing feature is replicated in the fashion plates that effortlessly glide to the main, upper and sun deck from above framing signature strip windows.

The yacht will often sail at high latitudes for both exploration and fishing expeditions. To enjoy fully long and challenging fishing trips, the Owner asked to have the yacht designed with a fishing cockpit, a stern platform enclosed within high bulwark, and all fishing equipment will be stored in a large lazarette.

The layout has been designed to meet the Owner’s lifestyle on board: there will be two Owner staterooms, one on the Main deck forward and a second full-beam suite on the lower deck amidship. Two guest cabins are located on the lower deck.

The client is very knowledgeable and technical-savvy and his visit to the Cantiere delle Marche facilities proved to be fundamental for the choice of the shipyard,” says Carlo Aquilanti, Sales Manager of Cantiere delle Marche.

“He found the craftmanship off all the workers to the highest standard and was impressed by the quality of materials, manufacturing and processes throughout all the steps of the build process.”

Among the Acciaio 130’s unique features are a 30-square-metre gym on the upper deck and a skylounge on the sundeck to enjoy the view while comfortable sitting inside.

At 39.42-metres, with a beam of 8-metres and a displacement of around 388 tonnes, Acciaio 130 has an extremely efficient hull with bulbous bow to keep fuel consumption to the lowest levels while granting an extraordinary range.

Two Caterpillar C18 delivering 533kW each will allow for a top speed of 13.5 knots and a range at 10 knots of over 5,000 nautical miles.
