Cantiere delle Marche Builds Unconventional 42m Superyacht: Ancona-based CdM has unveiled its first full-custom superyacht, Audace. The yacht stems from a project by Andrea Pezzini from Floating Life in collaboration with Sergio Cutolo and Mauro Sculli for engineering and naval architecture.
This unconventional high volume vessel weighs in at just under 500GT and has five decks, one being an under-lower deck. The stocky superstructure with its high bow and atypical general arrangement isn’t for everyone, but suits the new owner’s lifestyle perfectly.
Andrea Merloni, Audace’s new owner, plans to live on board so his requirements for the yacht were different. His two main requests for design and layout were to create a real explorer and to have the entire top deck for his own private use.
To ensure Merloni’s privacy, a staircase with a security door accesses the owner’s deck. The owner’s suite with double bathroom is located forward, and includes a small galley with pantry access so he doesn’t have to rely upon crew service. Close to the staircase is a living area with cushy loungers and a giant flat-screen TV. The superyacht features walk-around side decks and a Jacuzzi on the open aft deck.
The owner declined to have a formal salon and instead opted for a semi-enclosed, multifunctional space that includes a DJ station for parties and a retractable, 360-degree swiveling TV. Two guest cabins are inside and open onto the side decks.
The lower deck aft is another multipurpose space that can be used as a beach club or disco. The ceiling and walls in the disco are built with extra-thick insulation to keep sound inside when in port. Two VIP suites can be found amidships, with private fold-down balconies. The enormous Marrone-fitted pro-spec galley can be used to prepare food for up to 250 guests at once.
The under lower deck, spanning the length of the superyacht, is divided into compartments. Well equipped and powered, Audace can cruise for weeks without refueling or re-provisioning. Twin CAT C32 A certified engines power her. At an economical 10 knots, the yacht has a range of 5,400nm.
