Swiss-based yacht management company Floating Life and Carrara, Italy-based CCN-Cerri Cantieri Navali said they recently combined their expertise in shipbuilding, yacht design and management to work on a new 140-foot motoryacht.

The project was unveiled last week at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

Floating Life said the steel yacht, strengthened to fit the “light Ice class” and featuring an aluminum superstructure, was developed from the tested hull of the K40, engineered by Studio Sculli and is under construction in the Carrara shipyard.

Floating Life said the Commander 415 will be powered by 2 CAT C32 ACERT engines, allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots. The company said the C415 has a range of 5,400 miles at cruising speed.

“Our success with the M/Y K40 encouraged us to develop this new project, of which we are very proud, in cooperation with Floating Life. This yacht stands out for a number of modern, innovative solutions and I am confident it will be welcomed by the market just as it deserves,” CCN CEO Diego Deprati said in a statement.
