    I’m surprised I haven’t seen a thread on this builder yet. CDM is about to launch their largest yacht yet, the 42m K42 now known as Avdace. They tout that their builds are rock solid, very redundant, and high quality pocket explorers. Anyone with experience of these?

    Amazing shipyard! I was comparing it with the larger nordhavns but the build quality of cdm is just incredibly better! I had the chance to be on board both nordhavn and CDM, and personally think the quality is much more notorious on the CDM.

    Welcome to the asylum, and thanks for an interesting first post.
    Hopefully someone used to tar all Italian boats with the same brush might listen...
    ...even if it's undeniable that Dana Point boys are better than anyone at CdM in marketing and praising their Chinese stuff. o_O

    Btw, it's not a secret that the owner was Andrea Merloni, killed by a heart attack in his home just a few days ago.
    He was one of four sons of the founder of a multinational large appliances company, and as the story goes he was the only one who didn't want to sell to Whirlpool some 6 or 7 years ago, but had to accept the decision of his brothers.

    Goes to prove that it's never too early to start living aboard, as he used to do with the above battleship, I suppose...

    Thanks! And you’re absolutely right about the Dana Point boys, they have amazing marketing skills! But I Even found the information misleading in some aspects.
