Cantieri delle Marche is preparing to launch its latest 31-metre Darwin 102, MY Babbo.

The second of four steel-and-aluminium Darwin 102 yachts sold, and following the launch of her sistership Acala last year, Babbo will hit the water in May and is due to be shown at the Cannes boat show in September. A management team of her experienced capitain Marc Maudet and the staff at Cantieri delle Marche have configured the yacht to ensure her go-anywhere capabilities.

Babbo’s interior is the result of a collaboration between the South American designer Simon Hamui on behalf of the owner, who defined the style of décor, and the PFA Design from Fano that took care of the general plans. The yacht’s layout is particularly suited to larger groups of people who want to spend time together, and a great attention has been paid to the diving centre, situated in the huge and fully equipped garage of almost 25 square metres. The yacht sleeps eight guests and six crew.

“The success of our Darwin 102 is proof of how a product developed by identifying a very specific market demand can give great commercial satisfaction, even in difficult times like these. There are now four Darwin Class 102 sold and this shows that Cantieri delle Marche continues not only to be the absolute reference for all those who want to own a real explorer, but also to be  a shipyard that listens and translates very well the real needs of yachtsmen in every corner of the world,” say Vasco Buonpensiere and Ennio Cecchini, co-founders of Cantieri delle Marche. The yard is also planning to launch a Darwin 108 later in the year.
