Cantiere delle Marche has launched the RJ 115 Pazienza, the third yacht in its RJ series.
The RJ 115 Pazienza has been purchased by an enthusiast Australian owner who was introduced to CdM Australia by Sean Madgwick and Scott Wellington-Stones of Yachtsmen International.
The RJ series of explorer yachts bears the unmistakable hallmark of the Florentine designer Francesco Paszkowski. His artistic touch is evident in the vessel’s exterior, characterised by a slender, rakish bow and a robust yet incredibly elegant profile adorned with generously sized side openings and windows.
With six well-appointed guest cabins, the vessel promises a high level of luxury. The main deck forward boasts a spacious owner’s suite with openable windows in both the cabin and office, ensuring a seamless connection with the surrounding seascape. Additionally, the lower deck features four guest cabins, each with its own en-suite facilities, while the upper deck offers a VIP cabin for added exclusivity.
One of the distinguishing features of the RJ 115 Pazienza is the seamless transition between its exterior and interior spaces. The main salon effortlessly opens onto the cockpit, and large doors on both sides of the dining area create a harmonious flow between the interior and exterior areas. Similarly, the upper deck allows guests to step out onto the Sky-lounge and the lobby, connecting with the exterior passageways, providing a unique experience of the open sea.
Great attention has been dedicated to the largest outdoor area on board, the Sun deck, which, decorated with premium finishes, including a spacious bar and panoramic swimming pool adorned with the exquisite Agata stone, offers Owners and guests all sort of amenities. There is also a dining area and, upfront, a dedicated relaxation areacomplete with comfortable seating and sun loungers.
In terms of functionality, the yacht is equipped with two tenders, one of which is stowed on the upper deck’s stern terrace during long journeys and can be launched and retrieved with a concealed crane integrated into the Sun deck overhang. Additionally, a dedicated garage at the stern, with an opening hatch on the starboard side, accommodates the second tender along with various water toys, ensuring that guests can enjoy a wide range of activities.
Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini gave the interiors a compelling personality by skillfully harmonizing a diverse palette of light and dark tones in veneers, panelling, marbles, stones, and upholstery. In addition to elegantly crafted bespoke furniture, Pazienza’s interiors have been further enriched through the incorporation of a series of exquisite loose furniture pieces from distinguished manufacturers, such as the Maxalto and Flexform sofas and armchairs. An accurate study of artificial lighting emphasizes interior spaces and exterior details.
The RJ 115 Pazienza is not just about luxury and style; it also boasts impressive technical specifications. With a cruising range of more than 5,500 nautical miles, this vessel is ready to embark on epic journeys to the farthest corners of the planet. The redundancy of technical equipment ensures the highest level of safety, even in the most remote and challenging areas of the world’s oceans. The vessel’s efficient naval architecture, designed by Hydro Tec, combined with CAT C18 engines, translates into modest fuel consumption, reflecting CdM’s eco-conscious approach to yachting.
“We are very pleased with the results that this range is delivering to us,” says Cantiere delle Marche CEO and co-founder Vasco Buonpensiere. “It is a demonstration that style an elegance can be perfectly combined with the robust character typical of our explorer yachts. Regardless of the specific model or size, our explorer yachts are the right ticket to an unparalleled Australian coastal expedition and high seas journeys.”
Pazienza is the third explorer yacht of the RJ series to be launched, following the RJ 130 Nuri and the RJ 115 Stellamar, which recently debuted at the Cannes and Monaco Yacht Shows. An RJ 155, purchased by an existing RJ 130 owner, is currently under construction at CdM’s facility in Ancona.
“Pazienza is a show-stopper in the true sense of the word. The Owner wanted to create “WOW” factor, and certainly did it,” says Paul Miletta, who together with Domenico Giuffrè runs CdM Australia. “It has been a privilege to work alongside the owners, CdM’s team and Yachtsmen International to design and build the RJ 115 Pazienza. She is an attractive combination of vitality and glamour, yet while securing the true DNA of an explorer.
