AITAC are Successfully Shortlisted for the IY&A Awards 2014

design et al are delighted to announce that AITAC have been shortlisted with ‘CM42’ for the ‘Yacht Concept Design over 30 metres‘ Award in the International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2014.


The CM42 is an aggressive looking, 45.2 metre long, Super Yacht characterised by powerful and decisive lines on first sight. Second glance reveals real CM42 character: sharp, sophisticated and impressive.


The CM42 design is based on its character: sharp and inspired by wild sea life, sophisticated as its performance, impressive as comfort and joy of living on the sea. The aerodynamic superstructure design emphasises and underlines the basic characteristic of the hull; the inborn speed and efficiency with B/L ratio of high speed craft, accommodating spacious pleasure craft superstructure.


The openings in the bow part of the hull are inspired by the shark branchiaes and the main side raising arc stripe that surrounds the superstructure, mimics a feline jump. The “masculine” line gives the impression toward adventurous dreams, seaworthiness and complacency, while sending the subliminal message – with the right attitude nothing remains out of reach. A wide four-deck area allows convenient and luxurious interior design. Lower deck accommodates 4 full size guest suites (up to 8 guests) and separated accommodation for 5 member’s crew plus a permanent beach club for sunbathing and boarding the yachts tender and jet skis. Except the large owner area the main deck is composed of a dining zone and a large saloon that opens to a wide aft side with a comfortable lounge area.



The front part of the upper deck is occupied by the pilothouse and the captain suite, preceded by a comfortable saloon that communicate without apparent discontinuity to a wide open area equipped with an open space dining area end and relaxing deckchairs part. The bow side except for the technical side has a sunbathing place and sitting zone right in front of the pilothouse. The overall effect of the fly bridge is enhanced by a relaxing Jacuzzi supplemented with two wide sunbathing zones. The CM42 is an audacious and bold expression that has managed to rise above the conventional design, without being trapped in the cliché of becoming just another theoretical exercise. Real CM42 design is comfortable, spacious, simple but different, safe and stylish.
