New superyachts on SuperyachtTimes.com - 24/2008
By Maarten Janssen
This week 16 superyachts were added to our databases, including two interesting projects underway in Portugal. Liveras Yachts signed a contract with the Portuguese shipyard Estaleiros Navais de Viana do Castelo, SA (ENVC) for the construction of two 97m luxury yachts for up to 40 passengers.
Both yachts are designed by Greek based design studio Alpha Marine and will be delivered in 2011. Decon S.A., a specialized interior building company from Greece with offices in England and Portugal, will take care of all the interior work.
The 97m commercial yachts will be built in accordance with the rules of Germanischer Lloyd. With features like a large cinema, spa/health center, helicopter landing pad and 20 spacious suites including a large master suite below the bridge deck they promise to be popular charter yachts.
An interesting addition to our list of completed yachts is SuRi. SuRi serves as a luxurious support vessel to JeMaSa. She carries a whole range of toys, such as a helicopter, an amphibious landing craft, a stunning mahogany narrow sportsboat, as well as the more usual jetski's and kayaks. SuRi is outfitted in superyacht style and quality, and offers accomodation for eight guests.
