Pride Mega Yachts invests RMB20 million to enhance superyacht yard

Pride Mega Yachts invests RMB20 million to enhance superyacht yard

Pride Mega Yachts, one of China’s leading superyacht builders, has invested RMB20 million (£1.9 million) in a new superyacht construction building in Yantai to enhance its building capacity and quality.

The new 4,800 square metre facility provides support for Pride’s current construction of the 88.8 metre superyacht Illusion, by offering a range of new workshops, stores and offices. Pride’s new facility includes new workshops for electrical, carpentry, paint, and stainless steel work, as well as storage areas.

Offices for design, project management, and the yacht owner’s team, are located on the top floor and have a spectacular view, and direct access to, the superyacht under construction, which is actually being built inside the building.

'The new RMB20 million investment provides a boost to increase both capacity and efficiency of our superyacht building activities,' said Itay Simhony, a Director of Pride Mega Yachts. 'This gives our regular workforce a much better and fully climate-controlled environment to work in. It also helps us with the training of new staff. Most importantly the new state-of-the-art facility will make it possible for us to deliver great quality to our customers.'

The exterior design of Illusion is by Rainsford Mann and the interior is by Sander Sinot, accommodating 14 guests in seven large staterooms. Based on the styling of Britain's Rolls-Royce motor cars, llusion will be propelled by two 3,000hp Rolls Royce diesel-electric engines delivering a predicted top speed of 14 to 17 knots.
