The latest news on Hakvoort superyachts currently in build
by Raphael Montigneaux
Following the recent launches of the 48.77m Mirgab VI and the 39m PrettyWoman, some new hulls are now in Hakvoort's sheds.
The largest one is the project YN 246. Built in steel and aluminium, this 44.9m displacement superyacht has naval architecture and an exterior design by Diana Yacht Design. Lloyd’s registered and MCA compliant, her interior by Jacques Grange has accommodation for 12 guests in a master, four doubles and an extra nanny cabin. A special feature in the layout is the fact that the owner's suite will be located on the upper deck while the wheelhouse will be on a raised area on the main deck. Powered by twin 700kw MTU engines, she will reach a top speed of 15 knots and a range of 5,000 nautical miles at 10 knots.
The latest hull is project YN 247, a 39.7m displacement superyacht. Built in steel and aluminium, YN 247 has naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design. The exterior and the interior design are both designed by Reymond Langton Design with accommodation for 10 guests in a full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck and four further double guest staterooms on the lower deck. She is powered by two 500kw Caterpillar engines giving her a top speed of 12.7 knots and a range of 3,500 nautical miles at 11.5 knots.
Both projects are scheduled for a delivery in 2011.
