Flexplorer 146 Maverick launched!

CDM has launched the Flexplorer 146 Maverick.

“If it is true that we take pride in all the explorer yachts we have launched up to now, I would be less than sincere if I didn’t express my special pride for the launch of Maverick,” says Vasco Buonpensiere, co-founder and CEO of CdM. “This yacht, in addition to its countless, intrinsic virtues, holds a special place in our hearts because it belongs to an Owner who has known and appreciated us to the point of becoming the major shareholder of our shipyard. Ours is a relationship built on affinity and mutual respect. This explorer yacht, constructed with passion and dedication, is the result of the harmony that has developed between us and Tom Schroder. Maverick is a fantastic explorer yacht and a bearer of top-notch innovation and engineering solutions. We are confident that its entry onto the international yachting stage will be met with the utmost success.”

Crafted with precision and passion by the talented team of Cantiere delle Marche, Maverick is the first of three extraordinary Flexplorer 146 currently in the works. With exterior lines, naval architecture, and engineering by Hydro Tec Maverick’s interiors bring the signature of Francesco Paszkowski in collaboration with Margherita Casprini. With a layout customized to the owner’s wishes, Maverick stands out with a slew of peculiar features that set her apart from her two sister ships.

Her visionary Owners, along with their entire family, are set to embark on an extraordinary journey beyond the secure Mediterranean havens. Their initial exploration spans the highest latitudes, including Iceland, Greenland, and the northern Canadian coasts and estuaries.

This will be just the inaugural leg of a multi-year global journey that Maverick is impeccably prepared to undertake (and that we’ll carefully document, leg after leg).

“I am thrilled to share the exciting news of the successful launch of Maverick, a true testament to our commitment to excellence and innovation.

Your unwavering commitment and passion have truly set a new standard in the industry. Together, we have demonstrated our ability to turn dreams into reality, and this yacht stands as a symbol of our collective achievement.”

Let’s dive into Maverick’s show-stopping features:

- Custom-built A-frame crane: Crafted in carbon fiber by Advanced Mechanical Solutions, this A-frame crane with a lifting capacity of 4 tons, is a remarkable piece of engineering and design. It elegantly tucks away after launching tenders, leaving ample space below deck for a beach club featuring a gym, sauna, and diving center;

- Collapsible bulwarks: The bulwarks can be folded down, extending the aft deck into a sprawling 135 square meters of beachy bliss. Deck fittings on the swim platform take the experience to a whole new level;

- Ice belt: Ever dreamt of sailing in iced seas? Maverick makes it a reality with a 22mm thick Ice belt at waterline level, ensuring an unforgettable journey through frosty waters;

- Custom tender: Maverick comes fully loaded with a 9.5 meters custom tender designed by Valerio Rivellini and an array of water-toys, effortlessly launched by the powerful A-frame crane;

- Swimming pool: The transom features a pool. Covered when cruising, it transforms into storage for deck furniture;

- Asymmetrical elegance: Taking inspiration from the much-acclaimed Flexplorer 130 Aurelia, Maverick boasts an asymmetrical layout on the Main deck. A full-beam configuration to the starboard side expands the salon area, leaving a passageway on the port side for seamless service.

And that’s not all – Maverick’s interior, masterfully crafted by Francesco Paszkowski, is a testament to luxury, functionality, and contemporary elegance. The ‘Lady Owner’ collaborated closely with the designers to infuse a distinctive and personal style into the interior. From the family- focused ambiance to the neutral palette and carefully selected materials, Maverick’s interior is a work of art. Enormous windows flood the space with light, creating a serene atmosphere that’s both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Let’s not forget the layout. From the Crow’s Nest to the Lower Deck, Maverick’s arrangement is an example of luxury and functionality. The Owner Deck, Main Deck, and Lower Deck each have their own unique charm, offering an unparalleled experience at every turn.

With a robust steel hull and aluminium superstructure, at 44.30m, with a beam of 8.60m, Maverick has a displacement of 460t at full load. Fuel tanks with a capacity of 64,436 litres and powered by twin Caterpillar engines C32 delivering 970kW each at 1800-2100rpm, Maverick will boast a top speed of 14 knots and a remarkable range of above 5,000nm at 10 knots.
