New 50m motor yacht ordered at Christensen
by Raphael Montigneaux
Y.CO announces good news today with their first new construction order in 2013, for a 50 metre motor yacht at Christensen.
A few months after an historic contract with three orders, Christensen continues to complete their order book with yachts from 38m to 50m. Currently named 2GES, this new project comes from their Custom 50m series.
Built in composite in compliance with ABS and MCA standards, 2GES will accommodate 12 guests in six cabins: a full-beam master suite on the main deck, a VIP and four double guest cabins on the lower deck. Special features will include balconies, a hydraulic bathing platform, an elevator servicing all decks and a touch-and-go helipad.
2GES will be powered by twin MTU 12V 4000 series engines giving a range of 4,000 nautical miles. She is scheduled for launch in winter 2016.
