Italian builder adds Denison as sales rep

Denison Super Yacht Division was named the exclusive North American representative for the Ancona, Italy-based Cantiere delle Marche explorer range of yachts.

Cantiere is known for combining the luxury specifications of a superyacht with the size of a steel-hulled mini-ship designed for long-range cruising.

Denison will represent the Italian shipbuilder's full-displacement Darwin Class series, including the 86, 90, 96,107 and 115, and the semidisplacement Nauta Air series, including the 86, 90, 96, 115 and 130.

The Darwin series features carbon steel hulls and light aluminum superstructures, lowering the center of gravity; the Nauta Air series features all-aluminum hull and superstructure construction. An intelligent distribution of interior and exterior spaces offers operation, storage and living areas that are comfortable and functional for the ship's owner, guests and crew.

"As the grandson, nephew and son of aluminum boatbuilders in the U.S., this product is very special to me personally," Denison Super Yacht Division president Bob Denison said in a statement. "I strongly believe in the CdM brand and look forward to introducing the American market to this outstanding product."

Cantiere has sold one new construction project every three months since its inception in 2010.

This year, CdM has delivered a Darwin 86, the most popular model from the yard, and the first Nauta Air 86 and Nauta Air 90, all of which will be on display at the Cannes Yachting Festival, which will start Tuesday and continue through Sunday.

Denison will display several Cantiere yachts at the Oct. 30-Nov. 3 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and at the Yacht & Brokerage Show in Miami Beach in February.
