She is the culmination of a dream, of a vision, and we are honoured and humbled to be able to show her off now to the long-range cruising community worldwide."
He continued, "We have designed, engineered, and meticulously constructed her as a super strong and sturdy ship with a phenomenal commercial equipment level and superyacht interior quality and build. We welcome you on board.”Photo: AvA YachtsThe yacht will now depart for the Côte d’Azur and will have her international debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
