Dorries debuts design for 85m luxury river cruiser superyacht
2014-04-08By Risa Merl

New superyacht company Dörries Yachts has revealed the design of a different sort of a superyacht, an 85m luxury river cruiser.

Originally designed upon request of a client, a range of Dörries River Yachts is now being designed in collaboration with London, UK-based design house H2 Yacht Design, who have also designed interiors for the yachts. The line will include 60-, 70- and 85-metre private superyachts designed to ply rivers and the Intracoastal Waterway of the United States. The Dörries River Yachts are also designed for safe navigation in coastal waterways, which will extend their usability and take advantage of the yacht's nearly 3,000 nautical mile range.

The first design from the German-based Dörries Yachts is an 85m yacht that will boast a gross tonnage of 2,600, a drive-in tender garage, a helicopter pad and a heated indoor-outdoor pool measuring 15 metres by three metres.

Dörries and H2 have collaborated on existing designs for a more traditional 85m superyacht based on the platform for Blohm+Voss 82m Graceful, and they also most recently introduced a new Dörries Yachts 58m design by H2.
