Cantiere delle Marche Opens New Australian Office
Italian shipyard Cantiere delle Marche has opened an office at the Sydney Superyacht Marina, where it will be based temporarily before moving to a new venue shortly. The move highlights the strategic importance of a growing Australian superyacht market, one in which the CdM luxury explorer vessels will flourish.
“We already have many Aussie Owners who are making the most of our explorer yachts’ qualities and we have witnessed a growing interest from a clientele who lives and travels in the Southern Hemisphere,” says Vasco Buonpensiere, Sales and Marketing Director of CdM.
The opening of an office in Australia comes as Darwin 102 M/Y Babbo, launched in 2016, makes her way to Australia having been purchased by an Australian client and renamed TrueBlue. The Australian office will be headed by Domenico Giuffrè and Paul Miletta, two marine professionals with a wealth of experience in international yacht sales, as CdM strengthens its position in a strategically important market.
“Having represented CdM buyers in the past and with a Darwin Class Explorer due to arrive in Australian waters before Christmas, we are truly excited to be joining this amazing team and shipyard,” stated Domenico Giuffrè and Paul Miletta. “They combine technical solutions with award-winning designs for a product that does not have competition.
“With our commitment to the existing CdM family and the great opportunity to introduce new clientele, we look forward to offer a new level of safe and luxurious adventures throughout the South Pacific.”
With more and more owners looking to venture further than before and experience more adventurous than the quintessential Mediterranean destinations, there are few shipbuilders that meet this criterion better than Cantiere delle Marche.
CdM was established in 2010, and since 2015 has focused on delivered high-quality luxury superyachts to meet the ever-increasing demands of modern superyacht owners. The move to Australia is one full of promise, as this is a region of the world brimming with unique opportunities for adventures.
Whether hopping between remote islands in the South Pacific or exploring Australia’s immensely diverse coastline, the CdM explorer vessels are ideally suited. The sheer range of experiences available in Australia alone offer enough inspiration to keep adventuresome superyachts busy for years. From the mesmerising Great Barrier Reef to the rugged terrains of the Kimberley and Tasmania, Australia is a seemingly endless yachting paradise.
Despite the challenging conditions of this year, there have been some important launches from Cantiere delle Marche as the shipyard’s global appeal continues to broaden. Earlier in the year, CdM launched 42m explorer Crowbridge, designed by Tommaso Spadolini. More recently, CdM launched its first Flexplorer, 40m Aurelia.
