Currently being wrapped up in Dania Cut, Florida in preparation of an intensive conversion project is the 90 metre vessel known before as Danah Voyager. The project now known simply as Voyager became the largest vessel to head up the Dania cut-off canal outside Fort Lauderdale when she was towed from Louisiana to Florida where she will be completed as the largest superyacht conversion project in the U.S.A.
The vessel started life at ship builder Swiftship in 1997 when she was built as the offshore supply vessel HOS Trader for Hornbeck Offshore Services. In recent months naval architecture firm Kirilloff & Associates have been working together with designer Rafael Ochoa in the redesign of the vessel into a luxury ocean going explorer yacht.
A considerable amount of structure has been added with her hull length also having been extended by 12 metres to the current length of around 90 metres. These changes were undertaken at Leevac Shipyard in Louisiana. The aft section of the vessel will ultimately house a raised helicopter landing platform with generous storage for landing and water craft on main deck. Interior living space is spread across four decks with a large exterior sun deck space.
