It has been nearly 12 months since the 116-metre explorer yacht project known as U116 has arrived in Bremerhaven, Germany after leaving the Kleven Shipyard in Norway where she was constructed. During that time, she has been seen under cover where Dörries Maritime has been finishing the vessel to a superyacht standard, the results of which are now being made visible for the first time.U116 in BremerhavenPhoto: Christian Eckardt
