Superyacht Ras identified as 1985 Dutch built 30 metre yacht


Yesterday we asked you for information on a superyacht that was unfamiliar to us. Superyacht Ras was photographed last week in Krk Island, Rijeka, Croatia, but I could not identify her. Thanks to our readers, we have now identified her.

Ras was built in 1985 by Dutch shipyard De Hoop, in Hardinxveld-Giessendam, to a design by De Vries Lentsch. The yacht's designer has confirmed this to us. We also learned that she was lengthened in 1999 from 28 metres to 30 meters. Her original name was Vagasto, and she later on became Poncho IV. At the time of her launch, she featured a Dieter Sieger interior, but this could have changed since.

A big thanks to all our readers for sharing their information! If you would like us to identify a yacht for you, just send us an email.
