New photos of DSV's Mikhail S Vorontsov sailing yacht

New photos of DSV's Mikhail S Vorontsov sailing yacht

Here we have some photos of Dream Ship Victory's latest project, Mikhail S. Vorontsov, in-build.

‘Our goal,’ says Valeriy Stepanenko, owner of Dream Ship Victory (DSV), ‘was to build a boat not for racing but for luxury.’ He was talking about the 63.5m sailing yacht Mikhail S. Vorontsov, under construction at the Balk Shipyard in Holland.

The story of this intriguing yacht has its roots back in 2007, and has involved people from no less than 10 countries. Her hull was constructed in wood at the DSV yard in Turkey, before being transported by barge some 3,000 miles to the Balk yard for fitting out. DSV brought in Dykstra Naval Architcts to refine the hull, which has been formulated to provide maximum space inside while still turning in good sailing performance, and Ken Freivokh joined the project shortly after to work up the GA and interior design.

The result is a classically styled theme with a finish that is second to none – you only have to look at the intricate carving on the transom of the yacht to see the level of detail that has been indulged throughout. ‘The basic hull was already there when we got involved,’ says Gerard Dykstra. ‘The sailing characteristics will be quite similar to traditional classic sailing yachts, which also means she will be a very seaworthy boat – the sea-keeping characteristics in a gale will be very, very good.’

From her beautifully sculpted and finished deckhouses to her sumptuous wood and cream interior, she will turn heads wherever she sails. The layout will mean that those lucky enough to sail her should enjoy every comfort. Aft is an owner’s suite, including sauna and office, with its own deckhouse. The guest suites follow forward, with steps leading into the main deck saloon – a large space with bar, television and seating that leads out to a protected guest cockpit.
