Project Graceful, the latest yacht to be built by Blohm + Voss, has now left her building dock and is being prepared for sea trials which will take place in December 2013. Delivery is scheduled for the end of December 2013. The 82m (269ft) yacht has a top speed of 17.6 knots and a range of 5,500nm.
Over the last 18 months the yacht, designed by H2 Yacht Design, has been completed and fitted out in close cooperation with both the owner and Dörries Maritime Services.
The owner trusted Blohm+Voss to complete the yacht which features many unique and complex equipment and design characteristics – one of which is a 15 x 3m indoor pool, which can be converted to a dance floor by raising the pool floor. In addition to a separate owner’s area with a duplex suite and direct access to the sea via a folding balcony, the yacht has two VIP and three guest suites for a further 10 guests.
Blohm + Voss specialises in building yachts in the 100m+ range and in the past five years the yard has delivered Mayan Queen IV, A, Eclipse and Palladium.
