The 29.5m yacht was able to reach a top speed between 24 to 25 knots at full load condition with weights simulating tender and owner’s gear. “Our captain reports that the boat handled well and was very responsive to the helm. Two thrusters at the bow and stern provided a much higher level of confidence when docking. We have ourselves a yacht that operates smoothly throughout her RPM range. Thanks to her stabilization options, including a Quick MC56 gyrostabilizer and Sidepower fins, she is very steady in a seaway as well,” says Martin Lo, the company’s director.Her profile was drawn up by Milan-based designer Jozeph Forakis, who brought a fresh touch and a rebel’s insight to the sketches.

The Gladius superyacht range was presented by design studio Sturge and Toth in collaboration with Y.CO. Named after one of the fastest fish in the oceans, the swordfish, its exterior has sharp and elegant lines. It also parallels the striking power of the Roman army sword: The Gladio. The range includes three platforms, starting with a 43m. The longest will be a 74m vessel and the 62m is placed in the middle. One of the main design intents is the upper deck and sundeck superstructure on all ranges, built as an aluminium space frame within a smoothly sculpted glass geometry, where transitions of spanning convex and concave shapes realize exciting reflections as a key design feature, and partial see through photo-voltaic elements nurture its glowing appearance by night, playfully displaying the yachts energy conscious yet undisclosed technical features. Panoramic views through the advanced geometries from these framed glass structures within spaces with grand ceiling heights allow for unmistakable atmospheres also at night, where fluorescent particles melted into the glass appear as a high tech homage to the beauty of Scandinavian northern lights. During daytime these particles and solar panel flakes drop a homogeneous yet clustered shade, casting a pattern inspired by vintage military camouflage nets to the teak deck, while fully glazed aft sections are intended to transform into grand open decks by smart convertible sliding panels. “The larger vessels of the range include options of split deck layouts at the upper deck, where Loft like interiors translate into a concentric gallery overlooking the bridge and main deck lounge where an almost free floating bridge connects straight forward to the spacious master cabin and grandmaster office space," says Toby Sturge, S&T Co founder.Double height ceiling sections break up the flowing layout of the practical GA, allowing for views up and down between decks at certain cut out areas where large installations of fiber optic and glass sculptures mix in with brushed natural root woods. Whilst high contrasts of different haptic surface treatments reassemble a range of topographic patterns taken from 3d scans of ocean floors, panels of monochrome wood finishes are surrounded by polished stainless steel and soft woven silk and leather finishes, fusing classic styles and conservative inspirations with radical, futuristic influences of artificial Intelligence and virtual reality.Credits: Sturge and Toth

Cantiere Delle Marche has launched the 43m full custom explorer Acala. Acala has been commissioned by an experienced yachtsman who, over the years, owned yachts built by shipyards such as Feadship, Lürssen, Blohm and Voss. He is a repeat client for CdM, his previous Acala, a Darwin 102, cruising in the Med but also sailing the expanses of the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic and reaching the wild beauty of remote destinations and the best diving spots in the world.“I am delighted and proud of this milestone launch. The trust this owner confirmed in CdM gives us the highest reason for pride. The mutual trust established between with this client and CdM team has been pivotal to the good result of the whole process that lead to the completion of such a complex project,” says Vasco Buonpensiere, CdM’s co-founder and sales & marketing director.“The work on technical specifications has been extremely detailed and it lasted almost 12 months to achieve a double result: to build a 43-meter yacht with the most detailed and comprehensive specs we have ever drawn up and to proceed with no need of major modifications as construction progressed,” continues Vasco Buonpensiere.Acala’s eye-catching lines were drawn by Viareggio-based Horacio Bozzo Design. She features a large windows on the main deck whose mullions seem not to join the superstructure that are undoubtedly Acala profile’s signature features. Her full displacement hull was made by Sergio Cutolo/Hydro Tec. Acala’s interior design was penned by Mexican architect Simon Hamui. Guest areas are spread over three decks and a sun deck. Acala can accommodate 12 guests across six cabins. A large lobby sits in between the main salon and guest night quarters. The full beam main deck, from amidship forward is dedicated to guests and owners. Three large VIP’s and an owner suite to starboard side are flooded by natural light from large windows. Two twin cabins are located on the lower deck.A spacious panoramic sky lounge located on the upper deck and includes the dining area. A large cockpit features dining and lounging areas, a swimming pool and lots of space to relax. A partially shaded sun deck integrated into the profile provides the social hub for Acala’s guests with an al fresco dining, bar, vast sunbathing area alongside a second swimming pool. A dumbwaiter connects the galley located on the lower deck to all deck, sun deck included, to convey food and drinks and ease the work of crew.With a total length of 43,10 meters, a beam of 8.60m, thanks to hull geometry, 62 400-liter fuel tanks, and the extremely frugal consumption of her twin Caterpillar C32 Acert engines 746kW each, Acala will have a range of above 5 000 nautical miles at 10 knots and a top speed of 14 knots. “Being chosen by experienced owners such as this gentleman who decided to have his second yacht built by us, after having owned yachts built by the most reputed Northern European brands, is the best possible prove that our commitment, dedication, technical skills and quality are second to none,” says Ennio Cecchini, CdM’s CEO. CdM's story begins in 2010. The facilities cover an overall surface of 16˙000 square meters, including 7˙000 sq. m of workshops and 1˙000 sq. m of docks. Since 2015, the shipyard has been the world’s leading builder of explorer yachts. Based in Ancona, Cantiere delle Marche builds yachts from 26m to 43m in length.Credits: CdM
