DEEP BLUE 43 is the latest addition to the yard’s significantly active Order Book. The contract has been signed last December and the latest project’s details have been defined in these last few weeks. The yacht is already under construction with delivery due in 2021.
A pure custom yacht, DEEP BLUE 43 will take full advantage of CdM’s experience and its approach to yacht building that has proven being extremely successful and rewarding for all parts involved. DEEP BLUE 43 has been commissioned by an experienced Owner who, in the past years, owned yachts built by shipyards such as Feadship, Lürssen, Blohm and Voss. He is a repeated client for CdM, a yard which gained his full confidence having enjoyed the feel of comfort and safety of his 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 with this milestone sale,” Vasco Buonpensiere, CdM’s co-founder and Sales & Marketing Director, says. “The trust this Owner confirmed in CdM gives us the highest reason of pride. It is a statement of appreciation for both our yachts and ourselves as a team always committed to the Owner’s satisfaction. We follow each and every step of the project from A to Z, from phase 1 throughout the project development, building process, delivery and afterwards, maintaining a close and friendly relationship with all our clients helping and assisting them with a comprehensive, 360 degree assistance and guidance. This is indeed a key element of our vision and mission as explorer yachts builders.”
The mutual trust established between with this client and the CdM team is of fundamental importance to the good result of the whole process that will lead to the completion of a complex project such as DEEP BLUE 43.
“The work on technical specifications has been extremely detailed and it lasted almost 12 months to achieve a double result: to build a 43-metre yacht with the most detailed and comprehensive specs we have ever drawn up and to proceed with no need of modifications as construction progresses (unless unforeseen Owner's needs should arise as the construction goes along),” Vasco Buonpensiere maintains. “In the light of these approach and procedures, within the team we joke around saying that we are about to build the smallest 80-metre yacht ever built!” Buonpensiere says.
DEEP BLUE 43 inaugurates a new collaboration with a world-renowned yacht designer: her exterior lines have been designed by Horacio Bozzo Design. “The aim of our design work is the pleasure of seeing the Owner’s desires taking shape and recognizing himself in it,” says Horacio Bozzo, yacht designer and naval architect based in Viareggio, Italy. “Designing an explorer for a super-experienced Owner who grew up around boats and understands yachting perfectly, is very gratifying,” Horacio adds. “We started from a white piece of paper and brainstormed a lot with him to fulfill the whole family needs.”
Her clean, vaguely severe profile with a raked bow and compact superstructure captures the very soul of an explorer vessel combining it with the elegance of a luxury yacht that will stand the test of time. All shapes, volumes and lines compose a harmonious geometry while her roomy body encompasses luxury social areas and very large and comfortable crew quarters, as requested by the Owner whose plans include long term cruising to reach the farthest corners of the world.
Guest areas are spread over three decks plus a Sun Deck. DEEP BLUE 43 features a nicely organized interior layout with twelve guests accommodated in six suites, four on the Main Deck and two on the Lower Deck. A cozy saloon on the Main Deck and a large panoramic sky lounge on the Upper Deck are at guests disposal to relax in comfortable and bright environments. A huge cockpit features all amenities including a large swimming pool and lots of space to relax. DEEP BLUE 43 interior designer is still to be disclosed.
DEEP BLUE 43 has a full displacement naval architecture by Sergio Cutolo/Hidro Tec offering large volume (440GT) and the smoothest of travel even in rough seas ensuring excellent comfort and total safety. Engineering has been developed by the yard technical department in collaboration with Hydro Tec.
With a total length of 42.9 metres, a beam of 8.60m, thanks to hull geometry, large fuel tanks, and extremely frugal consumption, DEEP BLUE 43 will have an extraordinary range.
“CdM’s strategy to dedicate one slot per year to fully custom projects has proved to be successful and extremely important for the technical growth of the shipyard. Building these one-off vessels is a great opportunity for our team to learn something new and to work out of its comfort zone: this is the only key to move forward and improve, in our opinion, and that’s why we opted for this strategy” Buonpensiere says. “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.”
