Immediately following the decision to go ahead with construction of the 141 metre yacht designed by Ken Freivokh Design and Dykstra and Partners Naval Architects, DSV’s CEO Valeriy Stepanenko set in motion an impressive construction project at their base on the Aegean Sea.
Land has been reclaimed from both sea and mountain, and a massive 200m long construction shed built, flanked by two further sheds, each capable of taking on construction work on yachts up to 80 metres each.
The main shed in its present form can accommodate yachts up to 160 metres, with an impressive array of overhead cranes, climate control and support facilities, including offices and accommodation facilities all on site.
A massive and quite beautiful construction in its own right is the purpose built support structure for the 141 metre **** . In parallel, work is also progressing on both the 55 metre S/Y **** and the 43 metre S/Y **** , while the 63 metre S/Y Mikhail S. Vorontsov is nearing completion at its fitting out base at Balk Shipyard in the Netherlands.
