M/Y AUDACE mt.42

Since its inception eight years ago, Cantiere delle Marche (CdM) has focused exclusively on go-anywhere explorer yachts. Several customers have undertaken adventures as a result. The owner of Audace, though, might have them all beat. Not only does he want to go exploring, but also he plans to live onboard, year-round.

Periodo: 2019

The 140’4″ (42.8-meter) megayacht is a fully custom build, a change of pace for CdM. So far its deliveries have each been part of a series, like the Darwin Class or Nauta Air line. Interestingly, Audace is part of what’s called the K Series, the brainchild of the yacht-management, charter, and sales firm Floating Life. Despite “series,” the K Series is indeed custom. Buyers select styling, interior design, mechanical systems, and so forth. The series aspect refers to how the vessels are engineered for rugged, long-range travels. Specific to Audace, she’s a K42, referring to her LOA in meters.

With naval architecture by Studio Sculli and engineering by Hydro Tec, Audace stands five decks tall, including a tank deck. She also carries about 16,379 gallons (62,000 liters) of fuel. Powered by twin Caterpillar engines meeting IMO Tier III requirements, she should see an impressive 5,400-nautical-mile range at 10 knots. The megayacht is quite voluminous, too, at 490 gross tons. Furthermore, Audaceshould look and feel voluminous, bearing a 30’8″ (9.4-meter) beam.

The galley is fully equipped with a kitchen planned by Studio Otmar Frasnelli Kitchen Design. The custom made equipment completely created by MARRONE professional cooking systems.

The idea is just the beginning.
