On Saturday 15th, Cantiere delle Marche launched the Darwin Class 102 M/Y Archipelago.
One of the key mission of this explorer vessel is to offer her Owners and guests the best way to holiday at sea in total peace, safety and relaxation. Designed by Sergio Cutolo/Hydro Tec who is also responsible for naval architecture and engineering, Archipelago has interiors penned by Francesco Guida.
With a total length of 31 metres, a beam of 7.43 metres, Archipelago has five comfortable guest suites, four on the Lower Deck and a large Owner apartment on the Main Deck forward. Guests are pampered by a crew of 6.
The interior project directs all the livable spaces towards the sea. It is all about living in a beautiful place where colours recall those of the open sea, the clouds and the sky.’
Slow and steady wins the race’ is the Darwins’ motto and Archipelago is no exception: powered with twin Caterpillar C18 Acert engines delivering 500kW each, Archipelago, reaches a maximum speed of 13 knots and has a relaxed cruising speed of 11.5 knots. At 9.5 knots she has a remarkable range of 4.700 nautical miles.
