Launched in December 2017 under the project name Shu, Flying Fox is the work of designers Espen Oeino (exterior) and Mark Berryman (interior) while Imperial oversaw all aspects of the project as broker, owner’s representative, build-supervisor and also as operational manager now with the vessel officially in service and delivered to her experienced owner.

The high-volume yacht boasts a beam of 20.5 metres and an overall length of 136 metres. Flying Fox comes complete with two helicopter pads with D values of 18 metres (sundeck aft) and 14 metres (bridge deck forward) respectively, allowing her to accommodate some of the largest civil helicopters in the sky. Despite these impressive figures, Oeino managed to create a sleek look with curvaceous and uninterrupted lines from bow to stern.
