Completion is nearing in China on the 88.5-metre superyacht Illusion Plus. Scheduled for launch in just a few weeks time, she is one of the most exciting superyacht projects to come out of Pride Mega Yachts to date, with an uber-luxurious, chic interior design from Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design, naval architecture from Azure Naval Architects, and an exterior from Rainsford Saunders Design. Illusion Plus is packed with stand out feature after stand out feature, with just a handful including a state-of-the-art spa complete with sauna, hammam and massage room, a double height atrium, vertically connecting the main deck lounge with the upper deck lounge, and an 80 square metre owner’s suite featuring a generous private deck forward.
A spacious lower deck garage houses three custom tenders, designed to match the mother yacht: one Pascoe SY9 Beachlander, one Cockwells 9.5-metre Limousine and one Fassmer RIR 625. Tenders are included in Owner’s Supply.Pride Mega Yachts General Manager Mr. Shao Huiliang and Deputy General Manager Mr. Roger Friedrich comment on the project, stating: “Our teams are currently progressing well on all guest interior areas and completing exterior painting. We plan to launch Illusion Plus in early April with final completion of the build scheduled for late June. This is a very exciting project for us and we cannot wait to show her to the industry. We are delighted to be working with Y.CO to sell Illusion Plus.”
Gary Wright, Co-Founder and Chairman of Y.CO, says: “The entire team behind Pride Mega Yachts, including their subcontractors, are delivering outstanding quality with exceptional attention to detail. The efficiency of their experienced project management team is paramount and plays a pivotal role in the successful construction of this superyacht. Once Illusion Plus is delivered and presented to clients and the industry, we have no doubt Pride Mega Yachts will be considered for future build projects.”
