42.80 metres / 140″ 4′
AUDACE is the result of the collaboration between Floating Life and Cantiere delle Marche, who worked side by side to design and build this 42.80 m expedition yacht, making reality the project K42, part of the Floating Life K-Series. She is an unconventional expedition yacht, claiming unique and innovative features.
√ FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE
√ OWNER’S DECK
√ ICE CLASS NOTATION
√ TRANSATLANTIC RANGE
√ HUGE SOCIAL SPACES
The first trait that makes her one in a kind is the flybridge, which has been effectively replaced with fully private Owner’s deck, complete of master stateroom, His and Her bathrooms, private saloon, external sun beds and jacuzzi. The most peculiar property of this deck is the fact that it is only accessible by one stair placed on the upper deck, guaranteeing the utmost level of privacy to her Owner. Just as importantly, the food and beverage lift, placed in the pantry and connected to the galley, ensures maximum comfort.
TENDERS AND CRANES
Audace features some technical characteristics that make her unique. The main deck embodies 2 huge red cranes placed aft and fore, capable of carrying a total weight of 9 tons. They can easily move the 9m tender placed aft and the Land Rover placed on the bow.
The exterior main deck is composed by an half-length open space that, thanks to her extremely flexible layout, can be used for several purposes. The sunbathing area can be converted into the support for the tender. Her entertainment system, can ensure a comfy and fancy time in this area, which hosts enough space to accommodate 12 guests for suggestive al fresco dinner. The presence of folding out balconies, the beach club and the underwater stair enhance the connection to the outside environment. The lower deck presents a spacious liveable platform on the sea, giving access to a 55 sqm soundproof entertainment saloon that can be used also as Cinema Room.
Owner’s family and friends will be accommodated into 4 luxurious cabins. 2 VIP suites are placed on the main deck while 2 guest cabins are on the lower deck. The guest cabins are complete of private and folding down balconies, ensuring a “living the sea” total experience.
ADDITIONAL BOTTOM DECK
The bottom deck presents a walk-in technical tunnel, that allows crew to move along the whole yacht, without bothering at all the guests. This deck presents huge food and wine cold stores, the technical area, the control room, and the engine rooms that features spaces and comfort never seen on a comparable yacht. The huge storage capabilities along with her range of 5,000 nm ensures to her a great autonomy, that was the purpose of the Owner.
