Late last year, Bay Ship and Yacht Co. (BSY) located in Alameda, California in collaboration with naval architects Kirilloff and Associates of Green Cove springs, Florida, and Jeffrey Botwin of Herringbone Design of Los Angeles, California were awarded the contract to lengthen the expedition yacht SuRi by adding a 11 metre mid-body hull and superstructure plug for a new overall length of 63.4 metre.
The yacht has now been lifted out of the water, as shown in this time lapse video. One of her new feature are her 'Windows to the Sea.' Located in the new space on the hold deck, these windows to the sea are a superyacht first. Two large viewing windows under the water are illuminated by high intensity lights which attract fish right up to the vessel, providing a natural aquarium viewed entirely from inside the vessel.
