Amazing celebrations at Cantiere delle Marche at the end of January for the launch of Acaia, which took place in the presence of the owner and his family.
Already owner of a Cantiere delle Marche explorer, a Darwin 102, with which he sailed both in the Pacific and in the Atlantic reaching places of uncontaminated beauty, the owner appreciated so much the qualities of his Darwin, comfort and safety, that he decided to have a bigger yacht built by the same shipyard. In this case it is an explorer designed entirely according to his wishes, both in terms of external lines and internal layout. Acala inaugurates the collaboration between CDM and Horacio Bozzo Design who designed the impressive and attractive lines of this explorer.
The guest areas are distributed over three decks plus a large sun deck. Acala has an original layout with six guest cabins, four of which occupy a large part of the main deck. These include a large owner’s stateroom to starboard and three VIP cabins for the family. Two double cabins are on the lower deck. In all, Acala can accommodate 12 guests.
Acala’s interiors were designed by Mexican architect Simon Hamui who has created luxurious but not formal environments.
Acala has a displacement hull whose naval architecture designed by Sergio Cutolo/Hydro Tec guarantees excellent seakeeping and great comfort. Needless to say, like all the yachts built by CDM, Acala has a sturdy steel hull and an aluminium superstructure.
With an overall length of 43.10m and a beam of 8.60m, thanks to the lines of the hull, fuel tanks with a capacity of 62,400 litres and the very modest consumption of the two Caterpillar C32 Acert 746kW engines, Acala has a range of over 5,000 nautical miles at 10 knots and reaches a speed of 14 knots.
