The yard announced it had secured the contract in July 2021 but has released no further details about the project.

It comes after its 112 metre NB-724 explorer, one of the largest superyachts under construction in the world, hit the water for the first time in July 2021.

Little is known about NB-724; however it is understood that the yacht is designed inside and out by Bannenberg & Rowell Design.

The yacht will become the flagship of the Freire yard when delivered and will feature a massive interior volume of 6,950GT.

Freire also built the 87.1 metre explorer yacht OceanXplorer, which was refitted at Damen Yachting in 2020. The two-year project included building a Hollywood-level media production studio on board, which was developed in partnership with director James Cameron.
