The 82m hull of Project Graceful was put in the water last week in Bremen and towed to Blohm & Voss Repair in Hamburg, where, now lodged in the dry dock, the 2,500GT motor yacht will be completed.
The original hull was built by Sevmash in Russia and shipped in late 2010 to Bremen in Germany. Since then some modifications have been made to it such as the bulb bow, and part of the superstructure has been added.
Johnny Horsfield of H2 Design is responsible for the interior and exterior design of the yacht, which may share design traits with her sistership, Project Agat, also built at Sevmash and designed by H2.
Project Graceful is due to be delivered by the end of 2013.
