Italian yard, Cantiere delle Marche has sold explorer yacht Acciaio 118′ to a Russian owner.

The new yacht comes after only six months from the sale of the first Acciaio 105′. The sales marks a milestone record for the shipyard making a sale every 40 days since May 2016.

Ennio Cecchini, CEO and co-founder of the Shipyard added: “Now that we’ve even won design awards and awards for the implementation of the best interior (the last Design and Leadership Award ISS 2016), we can finally confirm to the market that there is a shipyard able to offer a unique range of yachts that perfectly blends style and solidity, safety and elegance. A yacht range that makes you feel at ease both in Ibiza and in Ushuaia, as our current owners are showing”.

The yacht, scheduled for delivery in early 2019, joins the other 6 units, all over 100 feet, already under construction at Cantiere delle Marche.

Acciaio 118’ blends all the various components that were found in CdM production until now: a strong and robust construction, using steel and aluminum, a round bilge, full displacement hull that in the last projects has evolved including a bulbous bow and shallow water capabilities, high volume, tender garage capable of holding a 6mt tender, enhanced external areas with elegant and smooth lines.


The 350 GRT vessel uses a high performing full displacement hull, with a bulbous bow, full midship section and smooth, flat aft sections which allow for optimal propeller space and an almost horizontal shaft line. These hull design features form a yacht with incredibly low fuel consumption and a long range, when coupling this with advanced hull reinforcements this creates a true explorer yacht.

The hull has proven to be extremely efficient but also offers seakeeping capabilities encountered only on much larger vessels. The Acciaio 118’ has significantly increased sound proofing making the yacht incredibly silent and with great stability in all conditions.

The Acciaio 118’ offers a customisable interior layout with large volumes providing 10 percent more space compared to other in its class.

The standard layout holds potentially six guest cabins spread over three decks with four crew cabins.

The main deck houses a generous lounge and dining with the full beam owner cabin situated forward. Located on the upper deck is a sky lounge/media room opening to a covered alfresco dining, forward of the helm is a further sun bathing area.

Acciaio 118’ offers a huge sun deck holding all the desired luxuries including Jacuzzi, bar, sunlounges and a hardtop for sheltered dining.
