With four yachts in the 30m-plus segment, the Chinese shipyard is determined to make a mark in the superyacht sector

Hull #1 of this 96-footer features two en-suite guest cabins, a master cabin and a media room. The media room is equipped with an advanced entertainment system and various amenities.

The yacht is powered by two 1136hp Caterpillar diesel engines for a top speed of 20 knots and cruising at 16 knots. Optional extras include a stabilisation system and an engine upgrade, which makes speeds of more than 28 knots possible.
