20 March 2013By Malcolm MacLean

Jan-Jaap Minemma at Fraser Yachts tells me he's signed the 88.8m motor yacht Illusion, currently under construction at the Raffles Shipyard in China.

He goes on to say that, with a massive company behind it, the yard is financially sound and is willing to provide finance for a sale.

Exterior design is by Rainsford Mann and the interior is by Sander Sinot, accommodating 14 guests in seven large staterooms. Based on the styling of Britain's Rolls-Royce motor cars, llusion will be propelled by two 3,000hp Rolls Royce diesel-electric engines with a predicted top speed of 14 to 17 knots.

The largest yacht ever built in China, Illusion is asking $89.5 million.
