Stella del Nord sold to Andrea Bocelli

Renowned opera singer and serial yacht owner Andrea Bocelli has taken delivery of his largest boat yet, an 86ft Cantiere delle Marche called Stella del Nord.

Darwin Class 86 M/Y Stella del Nord sold to the famous singer Andrea Bocelli. On April 24th has announced of having been appointed Exclusive Sales Agent for three second hand Darwin Class explorers, M/Y Stella del Nord (Darwin 86′), M/Y Acala and M/Y Babbo (both Darwin 102).

Vasco Buon­pen­siere – co-founder and Sales and Mar­ket­ing Di­rec­tor of Cantiere delle Marche – is proud to an­nounce that the first in the list, M/Y Stella del Nord, has been sold to An­drea Bo­celli, the in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned Ital­ian singer and song­writer in­tro­duced to CdM by the Ital­ian bro­ker­age firm Corte srl based in Lavagna.

M/Y Stella del Nord, the fourth Dar­win Class 86′ built by Cantiere delle Marche, launched in 2015, has been spec­i­fied at the high­est stan­dards and treated ex­tremely well by her pre­vi­ous Owner and she has been put up for sale like new.

The Dar­win 86′ is the per­fect yacht for an Owner like An­drea Bo­celli, who is not only an amaz­ing singer but also an ex­pert yachts­man, who – af­ter hav­ing owned ves­sels of all sizes – wants to start his way into se­ri­ous ex­pe­di­tion yacht­ing. Bo­celli was look­ing for an ex­plorer that al­lowed him and his fam­ily to sail far and wide, and com­fort­ably, even in the most se­vere weather con­di­tions. The Dar­win 86’ per­fectly matches with his wishes and re­quests: not too big and not op­er­a­tionally com­pli­cated (max crew of four, reg­is­tered un­der the 200 GT, ex­tremely fuel ef­fi­cient) yet large enough to of­fer full com­fort dur­ing long pas­sages. Right af­ter the han­dover, he set course for Naples and de­spite Stella del Nord faced rough seas, Bo­celli ar­rived in time and re­laxed to hold a con­cert. Not a bad start at all!

An­drea Bo­celli has previously owned several motor yachts including a Gamma 20 called Libertas, which was customised to feature one-level decks – a must for the singer, who has been blind since the age of 12.

Stella del Nord has already been put to good use, as Bocelli was on board for her delivery cruise from Lavagna to Naples, where he performed at his latest concert.

The singer has a packed touring schedule next month including dates in Russia, the USA and Lebanon, but he will surely be looking forward to some time off in July to enjoy his new yacht.
