Italian yard Cantiere delle Marche has sold a 35 metre MG 115 explorer yacht to a client from the Americas.
Penned by Italian superyacht designer Francesco Paszkowski, the explorer has a beam of 7.5 metres and features naval architecture by Hydro Tec.
Intended for “journeys to the most remote and secluded areas of the globe”, the MG 115 is “elegant yet robust, reliable, environmentally friendly, long-range explorer vessel,” according to the yard.
Accommodation on board will be for a total of 10 guests
Built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the yacht will have spacious outdoor areas with large lounging and dining areas. Vast windows allow natural light into the main and upper saloons while all exterior stairs are located on the port side.
Accommodation on board the full displacement explorer vessel is for a total of 10 guests in five suites; two VIPs and two twins on the lower deck and the master suite forward of the main deck.
The crew quarters meanwhile sleep five members of staff, while the captain’s cabin sits on the upper deck next to the wheelhouse.
The yacht will have a top speed of 13.5 knots
Power will come from a pair of Caterpillar C18 Acert 533kW engines for a top speed of 13.5 knots and cruising speed of 12 knots. The yacht will have a range of 5000 nautical miles and be compliant with IMO Tier III emission standards.
The MG 115 model is part of the yard’s MG explorer range. This also includes the 40 metre MG 129, which was sold last year.
Speaking about the most recent sale, CdM sales and marketing director Vasco Buonpensiere, said: “We have worked extensively on this project for months with Francesco. It stems from a fruitful collaboration between the yard’s team and the talented Florentine designer.”
