by Malcolm MacLean
Christensen Shipyards has announced the signing of a contract for the first Custom 43m Series project in a deal brokered by Tom George of Tom George Yacht Group for an American client.
The yacht’s exterior styling will reflect the classic Custom Series image with a raised forward full-shear bulwark and vertical pilothouse windows. It is powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 series engines, with a range of over 3,500 nautical miles, and features Quantum zero speed stabilisers.
At approximately 480 GRT, this vessel has a total interior square footage of 4,520. Twelve guests will be comfortably accommodated in five gracious staterooms each with an en-suite bathroom adorned with custom finishes. It will feature a main deck master suite, two VIP staterooms, two forward convertible guest cabins, and an elevator servicing all decks.
To be built to ABS class and MCA compliant, the first Custom 43m Series is scheduled for delivery in summer 2014.
