112m Le Grand Bleu departs Blohm & Voss following refit

Written by

Despite having become a regular site across the Mediterranean and Caribbean Seas, the incredible 112 metre expedition yacht Le Grand Bleu remains one of the world’s most ocean going superyachts afloat today. Completed in the year 2000 at German shipyard Bremer Vulkan, Le Grand Bleu returned to Germany towards the end of last year where she would undergo an intensive refit and maintenance period at Blohm & Voss in Hamburg. She recently departed mainland Europe and these images show her cruising for the first time since September 2015.

The German shipyard was unable to comment on the details of the project, but from these images it is clear that some cosmetic renovations were carried out such as a new coat of hull paint with Le Grand Bleu now sporting a new waterline boot stripe colour of white and grey. Here she is seen arriving in the port of Southampton earlier this week.
