The yacht was sold by Lee Marine in conjunction with Vasco Buonpensiere from CdM.

The 31.1-metre yacht will be the fifth Darwin 102 sold by the yard, and a build time of 22 months means she is due for delivery to her Malaysian owner in 2018.

The yacht was sold by Phucket-based Lee Marine in conjunction with Cantiere delle Marche’s Sales and Marketing Director Vasco Buonpensiere, who says: “In addition to the satisfaction of having sold one of our explorer yachts in an exotic country like Malaysia, we are thrilled to have found a ship owner who embodies 100% the Darwin Class spirit: not only an experienced and excellent diver but also a passionate adventurer in search of wrecks and marine relics. With this latest success, CdM confirms its strong international presence, thanks to a product line and characteristics sought after by connoisseurs of all nationalities. In fact, in line with our core values, the CdM Explorer Yacht in substance and content makes itself easily appreciated anywhere in the world”.

The yacht will cruise mainly the islands of the Indian Ocean, where her new owner with his passion for explorer navigation can cruise with his large family.

The yacht has been once again designed by Hydrotec and specific customised requests by the owner. There is a master cabin on the main deck, with a wide kitchen and breakfast area aft, and a large living area and cinema.

On the lower deck there is a full beam double cabin which can be turned into two VIP cabins with separate bathrooms.

For outdoor pursuits, there will be a custom 45-knot aluminium tender and the lazarette will hold a custom diving station and nitrox compressor.
