The eagerly anticipated yacht Graceful left her berth in Hamburg on Friday, April 18. The Blohm+Voss shipyard rose to the challenge completing an 82–metre vessel in a mere 23 months. This stunning yacht joins an impressive lineage of truly iconic vessels from the renowned yard.

Graceful was fitted out both inside and out by Blohm+Voss under the lead of Capt. Alexander Mozhayskiy. A unique, close-cooperation model was developed at the start of the project, making the decision-making process easier, minimising delays and facilitating a unique, if challenging, scheduling system. This led to a very fast build time overall for a yacht of this size, quality and complexity.

Blohmvoss Delivers Graceful

Representing the ultimate in quality, engineering and yachting innovations, Graceful boasts design from the award-winning H2 Design Studio in London, widely recognised as one of the most technically competent design teams in the yacht world.

Blohm+Voss was able to handle the unique and complex equipment and design characteristics – one of which is a 15m x 3m indoor pool, which can be converted to a dance floor by raising the pool floor. The yacht has two VIP and three guest suites for a further 10 guests. One of the outstanding features in the silhouette of this yacht is its exceptional helicopter landing area enabling a comfortable arrival and departure for the owner and guests.

Graceful offers extremely generous spaces both inside and out, her engineering is exceptional, her striking hull and fluid exterior lines are instantly recognisable and she hides a rich, elegant interior with exquisite detailing. She is currently heading south where she will undoubtedly take her place on the world yachting stage, turning heads for many decades to come.
