116m Kleven explorer yacht Ulysses delivered

116m Kleven explorer yacht Ulysses delivered

The 116 metre Kleven explorer superyacht Ulysses has left German waters and is on her way to the Mediterranean for her maiden season after nearly a four year construction process.

Kleven finished her technical build in Norway in December 2016. She was then sent to Bremerhaven for interior and external completion under the project management of Dörries Maritime.

Ulysses is almost 10 metres longer than her predecessor, the 107 metre Andromeda (formerly Ulysses), which was sold last year and also built by the Norwegian yard.

The new Ulysses was built on the yard’s existing MT 5006 MKII ESV platform while the naval architecture was undertaken by Norwegian design house Marin Teknikk. Kyle Dick of New Zealand-based Oscar Mike Naval Architects created the exterior lines and also collaborated with British studio RWD on her interiors.

Now completed, Ulysses is equipped with a heli hangar on the top deck which provides storage for her Bell 429 helicopter when covering long distances at sea. Her huge 18 metre beam will accommodate 66 people in a spacious interior.

Ulysses is now cruising with a fleet of high-speed and day-cruising tenders including a 21 metre Princess 68 yacht which is stowed inside the well deck.

Ulysses has been specially designed for long expeditions in potentially rough waters and Kleven has said it blends a robust, hard-working character with luxurious added extras.
