Furthermore, large exterior and interior spaces to spend relaxed holidays with the family.

Hymhä Yacht Nauta Air 111

Hyhmä (Nauta Air 111) by Cantiere delle Marche

Cantiere Delle Marche launched motor yacht HYHMÄ - a Nauta Air 111 with Dutch Naval Architecture from Vripack.

The design of the 34m yacht was delivered by Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of the Italian studio Nauta Yachts. Upon owner’s request, the yacht was designed to explore the Northwest Passage. Furthermore, the yacht will serve for documenting the marine wildlife. M/Y Hyhmä welcomes 12 guests in 5 five cabins and a crew of 7.

The Nauta Air 111 has a traditional general arrangement with an owners’ suite on the main deck and guest (two double, two twin bed cabins) and crew quarter on the lower deck. All cabins equipped with en-suite bathrooms.

“The dedication of the CdM team in building their growing fleet of explorers certainly got our attention in the recent years,” says Marnix Hoekstra, Vripack’s Director. “We are proud to be part of their professional group which share the vision that this world is meant to be discovered still and that yachts are the best tool for that job. We bring to the team our experience of 7000plus yachts as well as the five North West Passages our yachts made. We brought into the Nauta Air 111’s project our knowledge in safety and comfort. But most of all we look forward of becoming part of the CdM Family and friends group”.

Designer Mario Pedol comments:

“Hyhmä’s exterior expresses sober, elegant and seductive strength. This explorer yacht communicates its uncompromising seaworthiness through straightforward volumes combined with strong and decided lines in elements such as the shapes of the windows and portholes. Her hull and Top are in dark olive green that contrasts nicely with the white superstructure. While she picks up some of the features that made her predecessor, the CdM Nauta Air 108’ Narvalo, an international prize winner, Hyhmä manages to even improve on them, thanks to her longer LOA and wider beam.”

Motor Yacht Yolo Nauta Air 86

YOLO - Nauta Air 86

YOLO is a 27m motor yacht by Cantiere delle Marche in 2014. She belongs to the Nauta Air Line.

The Nauta Air range is a semi-custom yacht line designed by Nauta Yachts. The design combines superyacht style with explorer seaworthiness. It’s fully constructed in aluminum and offers to customize on many things. So the owner of YOLO was able to create with shipyard and designers the layout of the yacht. The layout of the Nauta Air range can be modified without disadvantages on its naval architecture.

YOLO offers a 60 m² sun deck with whirlpool, sunbathing area and al fresco lounge with flybridge. A detached stairway connects main deck and master suite for owner’s privacy. The guests have an own access to the lower deck of YOLO to their area.

Mario Pedol of Nauta Design comments:

“We feel that the unique aspect of life aboard a yacht lies in the opportunity it gives you to immerge yourself totally in the natural environment around you. When we sat down to design the CdM Nauta Air we always kept one priority in mind: that of bringing the outside world “in”. To do this we used wide areas of glass and created architectural spaces where the indoors could communicate in harmony with the outdoors. By thinking of the yacht as one continuous space we created a new concept of on board living, especially on the main and upper decks. CdM Nauta Air yachts are motor yachts that stand out thanks to their autonomy, their on board safety and their ample living spaces. All this while retaining a solid, robust, seaworthy core that inspires confidence.”

Vasco Buonpensiere, Director of Sales and Marketing and partner at Cantiere delle Marche says:

“Thanks to the new Nauta Air 86′ project, Cantiere delle Marche has yet again shown that we are a shipyard that pays close attention to the market and knows how to anticipate its needs. We noticed that a large group of owners was looking for motor yachts that are different from the typical white-hulled planing boat with a flying bridge. They wanted an energy efficient boat that has larger interior volumes, something fully customizable and with sturdy metal construction. This without having to go for a large, three-bridge displacement yacht that can be heavy in more ways than one. Cantiere delle Marche decided to create the Nauta Air 86′ line to meet their needs. This line has the essential superyacht characteristics of ample, fully customizable spaces united with energy efficient autonomy and freedom of use with limited crew. The CdM Nauta Air line is designed to meet the needs of experienced yachtsmen who want the security and comfort of a large metal-hulled displacement yacht without losing the flexibility and the ease of use of a planing yacht. The project has been an immediate success. Several yachts have been sold even before the launch of the first yacht in the series and I want to thank Nauta Design for their perfect interpretation of our brief. Their designs for the Air line fully meet our goal for yachts with strong, direct character combined with simple and elegant lines”.
