Cantiere delle Marche has launched the 108-foot Nauta Air Explorer Yacht Narvalo, a new flagship for the builder. She was created in partnership with Nauta Design and will make her debut this fall at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

Narvalo has a steel displacement hull with aluminum superstructure.

"We wanted to give shape to the vision of a motor-yacht defined by an innovative relationship between interior and exterior space."

“We wanted to give shape to the vision of a motor-yacht defined by an innovative relationship between interior and exterior space,” Mario Pedol, co-founder of Nauta Design, stated in a press release. “In our projects for superyachts, our guiding area is lightness in both meanings of the word: a general absence of weight and a widespread sense of brightness.”

Cantieri delle Marche says it created its new class of explorer yachts in response to consumer demand. Its designers aimed to achieve about 20 percent more volume than competing models, with exterior and interior spaces inspired by the latest trends in Italian boating and industrial design.
