The owners team, Dörries Maritime Services (DMS) and the renowned Germany shipyard have announced that the 82-metre yacht, currently named Project Graceful, is very close to completion pending sea trials and an expected end of year delivery. The build has taken very nearly three years.

This full custom yacht was designed by H2 Yacht Design and features a 15 metre by 3 metre indoor pool with raisable floor and 2.9-ton helicopter pad.

The master cabin is a duplex extending over parts of the lower and main decks. Two VIPs and three guest cabins provide accommodation for up to 14 guests and the yacht comes with a crew of 24.

Her hull is of steel and the superstructure is aluminium and she is classed to Lloyd’s SS Code and MCA LY2. She is powered by twin 2300kW engines capable of pushing her to a top speed of 24 knots. At her cruising speed of 12 knots she can manage a very impressive oceanic range of 6,000 nautical miles.

“The owner chose to collaborate with Blohm & Voss and this has turned out to be a winning combination for both the owner and the shipyard. Everyone is very happy with the outcome,” said Werner, CEO of DMS.
