American shipyard Christensen Yachts is getting ready to unveil their first newly completed superyacht project since the company has undergone a change of ownership in July 2015. The 50m Silver Lining, or hull 36 as she has been known throughout her build, is set to hit the water next month.
Jon Gilbert, Christensen’s new President, is clearly very excited about the new developments that is seeing the yard retuning to its yacht building strengths. “From the minute the gates were reopened, everyone at the shipyard has been dedicated to the timely and efficient construction of the four boats now underway. We’re excited to show the yachting industry that our new company’s construction quality exceeds even the high standards of the past.”
“All of us in management, and particularly the two people who stepped up to purchase the yard’s assets out of receivership, feel blessed that so many of our best people hung in there through those tough times and were able to rejoin the new company when it was formed last summer,” he continues.“Silver Liningis the real symbol of the rebirth of the company and a testimonial to the extraordinary boatbuilding skills of an extremely talented and dedicated workforce.”
The yacht features a traditional black walnut interior and unique stonework throughout, whilst boasting large living spaces. She accommodates up to 12 guests over six staterooms and is built to ABS Unlimited Cruising and under 300 U.S. regulatory gross tonnage.
Further on going projects include the 48.7 metre hull 40, namedChasseur, and is on schedule for a delivery in the first quarter of 2016. The 50 metre Hull 42 is also underway, and is expected to be delivered in late 2017. The sistership toSilver Lining, Hull 38, has been moved into production and is scheduled to be delivered in early 2018 and is also currently available for purchase.
