Fresh from initial sea trials, Project 116, the first AeroCruiser 38 II, was christened and named Shooting Star at Danish Yachts’ superyacht shipyard in Skagen on Saturday.
Having very recently emerged from one of the shipyard’s three large build hangars, this brand new carbon-fibre superyacht is an exquisite example of the standard of finish. She is designed to achieve speeds in excess of 45 knots.
Espen Øino, her Norwegian designer is justifiably proud of this huge achievement bringing together the Danish craftsmanship and in-house technical skills in this custom showcase 38 metre superyacht.
This beautifully finished superyacht, is the culmination of many Danish suppliers working closely with the specifiers and technicians at the shipyard, to ensure that the systems work seamlessly and that the quality of finish reflects the highest possible standards for which Danish Yachts is renowned for.
Unveiled for the first time is her luxurious and typically Scandinavian influenced interior. Designed to reflect the striking and inspirational light in Skagen, the textures, fabrics and colours have brought together a truly remarkable and unique feel providing a timeless elegance using the very best classic and contemporary Danish design throughout the vessel.
The owner’s and guest cabins are beautifully appointed, with air conditioning, en suite bathrooms and individual ipod music stations using the very latest technology from Bang & Olufsen. The systems throughout the interior of the vessel are integrated to work with each other. The cinema room provides a high degree of comfort, as well as an additional berth if needed. The crew quarters replicate an equal level of luxury, with a superbly appointed galley and crew mess area, surrounded by individual crew cabins.
Project 116 is now due to leave Skagen for her next performance at her world premiere in Monaco on 12th May 2011, where she will be presented to the international media and put up for sale.
