New 42m Vripack Explorer Yacht to be built by Turkey's Cizgi yard
by Malcolm MacLean
Vripack has designed a 42m New Generation explorer motor yacht for a repeat client which will be launched in Summer 2011. This sturdy and trendy displacement yacht is kept below 500GRT even though she has an impressive five decks.
The full beam master cabin, with full height panoramic windows and bathroom, is located on the main deck, while eight guests are accommodated in four cabins on the upper deck. This superyacht’s construction combines three different materials: a steel hull, an aluminium superstructure and a composite wheelhouse and navigation mast. This combination saves weight and keeps her in perfect balance as she is taller than many similarly built yachts.
This twin engined yacht is under construction at Cizgi shipyard in Turkey under ABS supervision in compliance with the MCA’s LY2 code and will feature an interior by Art Line.
