The Percheron is a beautiful and muscular horse, bred for its intelligence and willingness to work. The same goes for Cantiere delle Marche’s Darwin series, a range of sturdy explorer-style vessels “bred”—or rather, developed—for their long-range and seakeeping abilities. CdM hired naval architect Sergio Cutolo of Hydro Tec to design and engineer a range of yachts for owners seeking to fulfill their dream of a safe adventure at sea. The hull boasts a high bow and low fuel consumption yielding a range of up to 7,000 nm at 8.5 knots. Within the Darwin’s oceangoing package are the kind of refinements you’d expect to find aboard a luxury yacht, including a refined décor and high-end equipment. This is Hull No. Two of the series. Worth Avenue Yachts represents CdM in the United States.
