Christensen Shipyards has delivered the composite 49.9 metre tri-deck custom series D’Natalin IV to her owner. D’Natalin IV was christened by her owners in a ceremony at Gig Harbor Yacht Club.
Christensen describes this in-house designed superyacht as a "modern and classic, featuring a mascluline reverse-shear bow seamlessly tied to more classic elements through the mid and stern sections.”
Her transitional interior by Carol Williamson and the owners combines traditional raised panel millwork, with contemporary furniture and fabrics.
We are so happy to have D’Natalin IV be the first Christensen Shipyard Custom Series Yacht delivered since the 2011 launch of Remember When. This magnificent yacht with its bold red, white and blue exterior motif symbolizes American strength and perserverance, both halmarks of the Christensen brand. The owners of D’Natalin IV were wonderful to work with and are true American patriots for investing in such a beautiful Christensen yacht. We truly appreciate where we are today, because of our valued customers.” Joe Foggia Christensen Shipyards, Ltd.
The yacht’s owner commented “Christensen outdid themselves in delivering the most advanced yacht in their history! My family and our project lead, Christian Bakewell, worked very hard with the designers and engineers to get the details right. I could not be more pleased with the results. The layout of her four spacious decks make D’Natalin IV the most comfortable yacht I have ever owned, and I never get tired of staring at her beautiful blue hull”.
“From the outset this was to be a family yacht, so it was only fitting that the owner and his entire family were involved in every important design decision. Because they are such gracious and appreciative people, there was this very real sense among the entire build team that everyone just wanted to work that much harder for them. Seeing the broad smiles on the faces of the whole family as we walked through the finished product together for the first time was a very gratifiying experience for me”, said Christian Bakewell of Merle Wood and Associates.
“There was this great collaborative experience in meetings with the owners which allowed us to integrate their love of the traditional with more contemporary styling cues…the final design is elegant, yet inviting and comfortable”, commented Carol Williamson of Carol Williamson & Associates.
