“We are very pleased that we were chosen to develop the marine platform and that our shipyard will be the one to build this vessel. This is a very important contract for us in a new and interesting market”, says CEO Gunvor Ulstein in Ulstein Group.

The marine platform and hull line design is developed by Ulstein Design & Solutions. Exterior design and general arrangement plan (GA) will be supplied by the renowned yacht designer Espen Øino.

“The customer wants the characteristic X-BOW® from ULSTEIN and together with Espen Øino, responsible for the exterior design and GA-plan, we have developed a solid yacht project. We are definitely looking forward to realize this project”, says managing director Kristian Sætre at Ulstein Verft.

The vessel will be delivered first quarter 2018. The planning and engineering work has started and the project will keep a significant part of the Ulstein Verft workforce occupied throughout 2017. The yacht is 88.5 metres long and 16.3 metres wide.
