Fractional ownership superyacht company YachtPlus has unveiled the second yacht of its four yacht fleet in Carrara, Italy. To be christened Ocean Pearl, the 41m (134ft) yacht will undergo sea trials prior to its official launch in April 2010.
Identical to its Norman Foster designed sister yacht Ocean Emerald, currently en-route to the Caribbean for the winter season after a summer season in the Mediterranean, Ocean Pearl will operate a series of cruises throughout the Mediterranean during the summer of 2010 and the Caribbean in the winter of 2011.
“We are delighted with the response from the owners who spent this summer on Ocean Emerald and are extremely optimistic about the future of the next three yachts that will continue to grow the YachtPlus fleet.” says John Hare, chairman of YachtPlus.
The third yacht of the fleet, Ocean Sapphire is due to be launched in May 2010 and the fourth, as yet unnamed, is scheduled to enter service at the beginning of 2011. All four yachts, identical in design, are being built at the Rodriquez Cantieri Navali boat yard in Sarzana, Italy.
