112m Freire explorer yacht spotted ahead of outfitting

13 March 2023• Written by Katia Damborsky

The 111.8-metre explorer superyacht NB-724, one of the largest superyachts under construction in the world, has been spotted being towed off the coast of Vigo, in northern Spain. The seven-deck superyacht was moved from the yard to the drydock to finish being faired and painted ahead of delivery later in 2023. 

The vessel is the largest private yacht built in Spain and will form the flagship of shipyard Freire. The shipbuilder specialises in commercial ships, but it has built one private yacht in the past —  the 73.6-metre Naia

NB-724 has been designed inside and out by Bannenberg & Rowell Design, while naval architecture is by Marin Teknikk AS.  

Amenities on board the 6,950GT GT yacht have not been disclosed, but images indicate a generous aft deck swimming pool, a helipad on the bow and a small Jacuzzi located forward on what could be the owner's deck. 

The steel-and-aluminium yacht was last seen in July 2021 being sent down the slipway after her technical launch in June of the same year. She has since had her top deck fitted.
