LAUNCH OF NAUTA AIR 110
MIMÌ LA SARDINE
CANTIERE DELLE MARCHE,
ANCONA, 04 AUGUST 2018
Since unveiling its Nauta Air range to wide acclaim, Cantiere delle Marche had launched and delivered four award winning yachts in the same series. Today Cantiere delle Marche is proud to announce the launching of the fifth Nauta Air, Mimì la Sardine, a 110 footer bringing the signature of Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of Nauta Yachts for both her exterior and interior design. The yacht, a pure explorer vessel, combines Nauta Yachts' ineffable design elegance to Cantiere delle Marche's undisputed technical expertise.
“We are thrilled to have this family among our Owners. Their incredible eye on design and their approach to navigation and to the life on board make them perfect ambassadors of CdM's soul” says Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and Sales and Marketing Director at CdM. “We think that – also thanks to Richard Master of Master Yachts and his team – with Mimi la Sardine we have once again raised the bar of our already outstanding quality. The experience and the knowledge of the Owner’s team in building and managing mega and giga yachts has definitely been an incredible opportunity for us to increase our know how and, in certain occasions, to improve efficiency in the processes. Once again, we are proud to see a project which focus has always been the Yacht and never the egos of the players involved. A real team work”.
It’s all about comfort and informality on board Mimì la Sardine.
From the interiors to the outdoor living spaces, the end result is a comfortable environment with natural light and open air. Spread across three decks plus a large Sun deck, with beautifully designed interiors, she is able to accommodate up to 12 guests. The main saloon is devoted to lounging while the Upper saloon hosts a formal dining area with a remarkable table taking centre-stage. A huge galley is located on the Main deck to port side. Four spacious guest cabins that can accommodate up to 10 guests are on the Lower deck amidship, while a superb Owners apartment is located on the Main deck forward.
A crew of 6 will make sure every guests' need is met whilst on board.
The tender is stored on the Upper deck aft. Once the tender is launched, the area turns into a large lounging area en plein air partially shaded by the Sun deck's overhang.
A few hints on Interior decoration
The Owners were glad to work with the yard's team and the designers to tailor their yacht to their own taste and lifestyle. Filippo Bevilacqua of the Interior Design Dept at CdM considers the Owner’s role as “the most fruitful and effective ever experienced”. He adds: “Since the first meeting, the Owner has created a Pinterest board where we started sharing ideas and receiving incredibly precise inputs. It has been a pleasure working like this and surely another step ahead for everybody both at Nauta and CdM indeed”.
The interior style is cohesive to the exterior lines and has been conceived to provide the Owners, their family and invitees with a warm and relaxing ambiance in both social and private areas. Space and relaxation are indeed keywords throughout this family friendly yacht. Oakwood, both natural and weathered, is generously used on all decks creating warm and welcoming environments. Huge windows and openings onto stern terraces create visual and functional continuity between exterior and interior spaces. Tasteful details and refined furniture ooze luxury throughout, from the Flexform sofas in the main saloon and timber dining table in the Upper deck saloon by Riva1920, to the Bianco Galizia granite of all bathrooms.
Loose furniture, sofas, coffee tables and lamps are by renowned Italian manufacturer such as Baxter, Flexform, B&B, Flos, Gervasoni while most upholsteries have been chosen among Loro Piana's finest fabrics.
A quick look at technical issues
Mimì la Sardine, at 33.40 metres, with a beam of 7.50 metres and a displacement of 280 tons, is a beautiful addition to the successful Nauta Air series. Despite her clean and serene look, she is a robust go-anywhere explorer vessel without compromises as she has been designed and built to travel great distances to any part of the world in full safety and comfort. Thanks to 48,000 litres tanks and twin Cat18 Acert 533kW engines, she has an impressing range of 5.500 nautical miles at the economic speed of 9 knots.
Mimì la Sardine is indeed a quintessential explorer vessel with a sea-kindly and sea-worthy hull purposely designed by Sergio Cutolo and his team Hydro Tec for moving effortlessly and safely in all sea conditions, redundant technical equipment, well laid-out technical spaces to simplify upkeep and extremely large and comfortable interior and exterior areas to provide guests with all comforts and amenities during long passages.
The Nauta Air 110 matches top level quality as for construction standards and technical equipment. As all yachts built by CdM, her robust steel/aluminium body encompasses cupro-nickel piping, remote controlled valves, electrically driven stabilizers, all pumps on board are doubled and there is also a bilge oil separator. Machineries and equipment are installed in large and properly laid out technical spaces to make access and maintenance as easy as possible. The yacht's engine room for its size and layout is indeed to be considered a particular highlight, a bold statement of design and technical skills.
