Following its successful launch of the Premier 130’ at the beginning of the year, Drettmann GmbH has now commissioned the construction of its first 50 meter yacht. Yacht architect and Florida resident JC Espinosa will be responsible for the design.
The new flagship will be equipped with 2,680 HP Caterpillar motors (optionally, MTU engines are also possible) for maximum speeds of 20 knots. On three decks, a total of ten guests can be accommodated in five suites – not taking into account the salon, master cabin, crew area, dining room, hot tubs, bar and generously sized lounge. A distinguishing feature of the Premier 163’ is the presence of large-scale windows in all living quarters for an optimal view of the sea.
“Completion of the yacht is currently planned for 2011,” said company CEO, Albert Drettmann (39). “The Premier 163’ offers plenty of comfort: six crew cabins, a first aid room and a technical control station are further features. Last but not least, a whirlpool which can accommodate ten people has been planned for the large flybridge.”
The construction will take place in partnership with the renowned Horizon Group in Taiwan.
