Voyager's three year explorer yacht conversion revealed
Photos showing the completed conversion of the 90 metre explorer Voyager have been revealed for the first time.
Previously known as Danah Voyager, the explorer yacht arrived at Dania Cut, Florida in April 2016 to begin a three year conversion from a supply ship into an explorer superyacht.
Originally built by US yard Swiftships and launched in 1997 as Candy Trader, her initial LOA was 63 metres when she first operated as a supply ship for commercial works. She was re-named HOS Trader in July 2003, when she was used as an offshore supply ship.
The first part of her conversion began in January 2015. This work included a redesign of her superstructure and lengthening of her hull, as well as a 12.12 metre mid-body extension. She now measures 91.4 metres. Other major steel work was also completed, when a larger bathing platform and helipad were added to the vessel. The work was undertaken by Gulf Islands Shipyards in Houma, Louisiana.
The hull of Voyager was then been shipped to Fort Lauderdale, where fitting out was completed at Dania Cut. This included repowering and the installation of new generators.
The interiors were believed to be split between two separate contractors, with one working on the guest cabins and another dedicated to the crew quarters.
Other key features include multiple galleys, pantries and media rooms, as well as a deep dive centre — one of the primary purposes of this explorer yacht.
