Jade Yachts launches its flagship 51.8m superyacht

Jade Yachts launches its flagship 51.8m superyacht

Jade Yachts has launched its largest motor yacht yet, the 51.8m Jade 959, previously known as hull JY109.

Started in 2009, there is still much to be done on the yacht but work is progressing well at the Taiwanese yard and delivery is due soon. JC Espinosa designed her exterior and naval architecture was carried out by the yard. The interior arrangement and design is by Central Yacht, which was in the spotlight last year for the design of the 56m Benetti superyacht Lady Candy.

'The arrangement was made specifically for a segment of the Chinese market,' says Paul Brackley of Central Yacht. The layout has been carefully considered to be suitable for charter by two principle guests, with an upper deck owner's suite that is just as comfortable as the more conventional main deck owner's suite, with two doubles and two twins on the lower deck.

A saloon on the sun deck offers panoramic views as well as karaoke and cinema facilities, a dining area and wet bar. The variety of large and small, intimate and formal spaces onboard means it is both a flexible charter yacht and well-suited to business entertaining. The five-deck yacht accommodates 12 guests plus a crew of 10.

Bureau Veritas classed and MCA compliant, Jade 959 is powered by twin 2,000kW MTU engines giving a top speed of 18 knots. Her special features include an ice classed steel hull, offering the possibility of world-wide travel.

Jade 959 is scheduled to be delivered this spring.
