Christensen gives construction update on Hull 38 Liquidity

American superyacht builder Christensen has given a construction update on its forthcoming 50 metre yacht Liquidity.

Formerly known as Hull 38, this all-GRP semi-displacement yacht recently moved sheds to the finish bay at Christensen, where the superstructure and hull were joined on February 14. She will now move onto the plumbing and wiring stage before the cabinetry is installed.

Due to launch in summer 2018, Liquidity features a total interior volume of 580GT thanks to her full-beam upper deck saloon, as previously seen on Christensen’s 2016 launch Silver Lining.

Accommodation is for 12 guests in six cabins, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to ten people. Her interiors were designed in-house and will be finished in high-gloss black walnut, stainless steel and fine stonework.

Christensen adds that its technical team has paid particular attention to sound and vibration dampening on this project, while extensive thermal insulation should reduce the need to use the yacht’s air conditioning system.

Built to ABS standards, Liquidity will feature a superyacht elevator for easy access to all three decks. Power will come from a pair of MTU diesel engines for a top speed of 15.5 knots, while the total fuel capacity of 56,781 litres means a maximum cruising range of 4,000 nautical miles is possible when she is trimmed back to 10 knots.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at Christensen include the 48.77 metre Hull 42 – slated for a 2018 launch. The yard also plans to expand into a new Tennessee facility, which will allow for simultaneous construction of numerous yachts measuring up to 70 metres LOA.
