Created by Unique Yacht Design, she will be built to ABS class and LY3 compliance, and is due to be delivered in 2019.
General arrangements plans are currently being made. Construction drafts and drawings are also getting prepared. The model testing and towing tank test of the vessel are planned for this month. As announced by the shipyard, they will be able to start the steel cutting and hull construction by the beginning of March 2016.
