Both built in the state of Washington, the 46-metre Avalon was launched in 2009 at the Seattle-based Delta Marine in 2009 as Katya. Delta’s in-house Delta Design team is responsible for the exterior design of this high-volume displacement GRP motor yacht while designer Jean Claude Canestrelli created the lavish interior guest spaces on board.
The 48.7-metre motor yacht Chasseur was built at Christensen Shipyards in 2016 and changed ownership last year after having been listed for sale at $30,900,000. With an interior design from the neighbouring design studio VARO Interior Design, the spacious yacht, just shy of 500 GT, has luxury and contemporary spaces throughout and features a nautical-themed decor, with furnishings by Hermes and Jean Michel Frank in the VIP suite.
