Stella di Mare means Starfish in Italian
Italian yard CBI Navi has launched the 40m custom explorer yacht named Stella di Mare.
The project was known as CBN45 and was built for a European client. The vessel was contracted by Mondomarine in 2015, but the shipyard ran into trouble and the project was moved in 2017 to CBI Navi.
The full displacement yacht uses a steel hull and was designed by Sergio Cutolvo of Hydro Tec. Interior design is by Fossati Design Bureau. She can accommodate 14 guests in five double cabins.
“The launch of Stella di Mare is a new step in the life of our shipyard, but at the same time, it is not a point of arrival. We have recently closed contracts for new yachts to be delivered in 2019 and 2020. We are glad to deliver the yacht to our client and at the same time to have the chance to present it to the market. All these new developments are making us feel optimistic for the future”, commented Francesco Guidetti, director of CBI Navi.
Power is provided by two Caterpillar C32 Acert diesel engines, each delivering 1,000 hp for a top speed of 14 knots. Cruising at ten knots, she has a range of 6,900 nautical miles.
