Nauta Air 110 sold to a well known Aussie

Cantiere delle Marche has sold a Nauta 110, the fourth explorer yacht within a month of the first sale of the year. This performance showcases the impressive commercial success of the Ancona-based shipyard.

A few months ago, the sale of a Nauta Air 108 was announced, this week it was confirmed that another yacht in this really unique series has been sold to a very experienced Australian Owner, Marcus Blackmore: a Nauta Air 110.

“Announcing a new sale is always an emotion for us. In this very case, we are even more thrilled because the Owner, Marcus Blackmore, apart from being a visionary entrepreneur and benefactor, is a true sailor and explorer himself. Together with his wife Caroline they competed in a multitude of major sail races with their three Southern Wind (all christened Ammonite) and explored some of the most remote archipelagoes lost in the expanses of the Pacific Ocean,” says Vasco Buompensiere, co-founder and CEO of Cantiere delle Marche who adds: “We express a great satisfaction for the success we have been witnessing in Australia. The abundance of magnificent shores far from well-equipped harbours and marinas has underscored the importance of explorer-like qualities, prioritising robustness and reliability. Our yachts actually open new horizons to all those passionate Owners who would love exploring the pristine and wild Australian coasts or sail through the expanses of the Pacific Ocean but are penalized by the lack of dependability of most yachts available on the market.”

“We are proud to welcome one of Australia’s most experienced yacht owners into the CdM Family. Appointing us to build their custom yacht with high attention to sustainability is a challenge we look forward to achieving. We wish to thank the owners and look forward to being part of the journey,” says Paul Miletta of Cantiere delle Marche Australia.

When the Nauta Air series was introduced, the aim was to offer prospective customers an authentical explorer yacht featuring gentler lines compared to the design of a stereotype explorer yacht.

The Nauta Air series, designed by Nauta Yachts, is characterised by a very clean and uncluttered profile, generous interior volumes and highly enjoyable exterior areas, and it is a clear example of Cantiere delle Marche’s pro-active approach to yacht design.

The series benefited a good success as witnessed by international awards and opened the way to new series such as the RJ line that, as the Nauta Air series, hides its true explorer soul inside a smooth and elegant shell. The Nauta Air 110 is no exception: quintessentially functional and smart in her understated elegance, she features a robust steel hull and super reliable equipment to face long passages in all weather conditions in full safety and comfort. The concept of the Nauta Air range is to emphasise a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. The aft grand staircase summarises this concept by serving as an invitation to the sea when aboard and vice versa.

This distinctive feature, coupled with the very modest draught of all yachts in this series, is much appreciated and warmly embraced by many Owners as the yacht can anchor in proximity of the coast and the ample staircase provides an ideal setting for enjoying relaxing moments with feet immersed in the sea and gaze to the beauty of the shoreline.

The Nauta Air 110 will be an example of consistency as both exterior and interior design have been developed by Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of Nauta Yachts.

Their expertise has given rise to a bespoke layout, thoughtfully tailored to harmonise with the Owner’s lifestyle with large lounging indoor areas on both the Main and Upper deck and the dining areas located outdoor, on the Upper deck aft and the spacious Sun deck.

With a total length of 33,50m and a beam of 7.50m, equipped with twin Caterpillar C18 Acert 533kW each, the yacht will have a range of above 4000nm at 10 knots and a max speed of 13 knots.
