Sunbird Yachts has signed a contract to design a 60m (197ft) superyacht for a customer in China, following the construction agreement of a Dream Cat 30m recently.

The shipyard is positive that this will eventually turn into a build contract.

“This is our biggest project so far and we intend to work with industry leaders worldwide to provide the best solutions for the client’s boating requirements” says Li Yue Xian, CEO of Sunbird Yachts.

“Such areas will include structural design, acoustic controls, interior and exterior styling.”

Design work will feature full composite structures, with carbon and Kevlar fibres as required, and a big garage for cars, water sport toys, etc.
