New 67m superyacht refit project at Werner Yacht Design

New 67m superyacht refit project at Werner Yacht Design

Just before the Monaco Yacht Show, a client of Werner Yacht Design contacted Theo Werner to say that he had purchased two identical hulls of fast Dutch ferries built in 1915, both in extremely good condition.

The owner asked if it would be feasible to refit the ferry into a classic motor yacht and Werner decided at once that it had a lot of potential. The new design sees accommodation added to the top deck, the bridge enlarged and the vessel's length emphasised. The original plans show a somewhat vertical design which wasn't thought appropriate for a private superyacht. To accentuate the length, the forecastle has been extended further aft, a bulwark has been added and a Portuguese bridge is now located on the bridge deck. These changes give the profile seen on some of the most exclusive yachts of the era, such as J.P. Morgan's Corsair IV or Horace Dodge's Delphine.
