Christensen Shipyard has sold a Custom 160 superyacht to Mr Donald A. Burns, who previously owned the 36.58 metre superyacht Cacique, now First Draw. Mr Burns is the 20th client who has returned to Christensen for a new yacht. The superyacht will be one of the first US flagged yachts with the capabilities of commercial charter in Europe for up to 12 passengers.
While the yacht’s exterior lines are designed by the in-house team of Christensen, the interior will be designed by Tonya Lance of VARO Interior Design. The interior will accommodate 12 guests in 6 well-appointed staterooms.
The light grey hulled superyacht will be powered by twin Caterpillar 3512 engines, with a range of over 4,000 nautical miles, and features ZeroSpeed-At Anchor stabilisers.
Christensen says that building this yacht will create over 100 manufacturing jobs in the United States. The yacht is scheduled for delivery in September 2013.
