June 2016 has been quite an active month for the Italian shipyard Cantiere delle Marche (CDM). Earlier last week, CDM reported the delivery of its explorer yacht M/Y Babbo. According to the scheduled delivery date, the Darwin Class 102' was delivered to her owner at the shipyard's facility in Ancona, Italy. 

The steel and aluminium explorer yacht is 31.1m long and its gross tonnage is 244gt. It features a garage of 25sqm and enough space to accommodate two tenders, each one with a 5m LOA. 

The navigation system of the yacht allows it to resist winds of over 50 knots, which is also introduced to the rest of the models of the same Class. Delivered to its South American owner, the explorer yacht is now ready to sail the Mediterranean Sea.

Today, Cantiere delle Marche informed SuperyachtNews.com that it has sold another Darwin Class 102' superyacht. The new contract has been signed to build the fifth explorer yacht from this Class. The new Darwin Class 102' is due to deliver in 2018 to a Malaysian client. The sale has been made by Lee Marine Phuket in cooperation with CDM Sales and Marketing Director Vasco Buonpensiere.

After introducing both the Darwin Class and the Nauta Air lines, the shipyard has claimed it now represents approximately 60 per cent of the 110-foot Explorer Yachts worldwide.
