Launched as Evergreen in 1999, this motor yacht was originally built for the chairman of the Taiwan-based Evergreen Corporation, Chang Yung-fa, at Hayashikane Zosen in Nagasaki, Japan. Her naval architecture was by Diana Yacht Design to a design by Felix Buytendijk.
Evergreen was acquired by American businessman Dennis Washington in 2007. Like all his previous yachts, the new owner renamed her Attessa, the fourth of that name, and started a long refit in Seattle.
Although the project was highly secret until this morning, Ted McCumber, captain and project manager of Attessa IV, kindly sends us an exclusive first rendering of the yacht.
Ted comments: "Attessa IV will be unveiled October 1st 2010 in Vancouver BC, Canada after a three and a half year extensive reconstruction to as-new condition. The rebuild work was carried out by Washington Yachting Group and Glade Johnson Design is responsible for the new interior and exterior styling. Attessa IV has been brought to Lloyds and MCA Class and is now 100.6 metres."
Undoubtedly, Attessa IV will become one of the most impressive refits ever.
