CdM launches the Darwin 115—the largest in its class— with exterior by Hydro Tec and interior by Nauta Design

“We are very glad that this experienced Owner decided to entrust us to build his Darwin and proud for the confidence he has placed in our team,” says Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and sales and Marketing Director at CdM. “We did our best to fulfill his expectations!” Purchased by a very experienced and passionate Owner, the Darwin 115 started as a 112-footer and grew of around 3 feet as her Owner decided to have a longer and enclosed swim platform to enjoy a close relationship with the sea.

The owner plans long distance cruising to reach remote areas of the globe and appreciates the Darwin’s high bow that intercepts rough seas and sea- kindly hull granting full comfort and protection.

Designed to cruise thousands of miles a year, the quality of construction, materials and technical equipment are critical to simplify the yacht's daily handling and upkeep. The engine-room utilizes proven high wear equipment in a large and well laid out engine room allowing for ease of service by the crew.

This 115 is customized according to the owner precise requests and features Nauta Design's interior. This is the first time that Nauta designers, Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino created an interior of a Darwin Class. The interior decoration features an understated yet sophisticated style with plenty of bleached and brushed oak.

Exterior design and naval architecture bring the signature of Sergio Cutolo/Hydro Tec. The owner and his team worked with the designers and the shipyard engineers to tailor the Darwin 115 to their taste and lifestyle, creating a yacht that will take them around the world in comfort and safety.
