Superyacht Apostrophe launched by Hakvoort

Superyacht Apostrophe launched by Hakvoort

Hakvoort announces the launch of the 39.7m superyacht Apostrophe. Previously known under the hull number YN247, she hit the water last Saturday following a Russian Orthodox ceremony at the yard.

Designed by Reymond Langton Design with naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design, Apostrophe is considered one of the finest Hakvoorts ever launched as confirmed by project manager Alexander Speksnijder: 'Every suggestion made by the interior and exterior architects was accepted regardless of cost, and there have been no compromises in any area of the boat'. He added: 'This sophisticated and challenging project has been finished to perfection'.

The contemporary Art Deco interior, also designed by Reymond Langton Design, accommodates 10 guests in five staterooms including a full-beam master suite on the main deck and two double and two twin cabins on the lower deck.

Built in steel and aluminum, Apostrophe is powered by twin 500kW Caterpillar C-18 engines giving a top speed of 12.7 knots and a cruising speed of 11 knots.

As a reminder, this project was signed five years ago at the beginning of the economic crisis. With banks refusing to finance the project, the yard, the owner and Moran Yacht and Ship worked together to find a solution and completed the construction.

Apostrophe is scheduled to be delivered this summer.
