Launched in 2012 in Plymouth, the impressive six-deck superyacht is the very last vessel to be constructed by the British shipyard Devonport before the company was acquired by Pendennis. She features naval architecture by Devonport, an exterior design by RWD, and sophisticated interiors from the French designer Rémi Tessier.
Vava II's Swiss-Italian owner is a keen yachtsman and sailor. After founding the professional sailing yacht racing Team Alinghi in 2000, he entered and won the renowned America’s Cup in 2003, bringing the Cup to Europe for the first time. Although details and images of the yacht's Tessier designed interiors are scarce, it is known that she accommodates a crew of up to 34. Amongst her many amenities on board are four tenders that are stowed in separate tender garages both aft and forward, as well as a helicopter landing pad and a large swimming pool.
