Britain has a strong boatbuilding heritage, launching some beautiful and historically important yachts. Today, British superyacht building is unassuming in its dominance – you might be surprised to learn Britain holds the number four ranking on the 2015 Global Order Book, claiming 2,216 metres of yachts more than 24 metres LOA in build.
One of the best British superyachts launched in recent years was also one of the most secretive, and Boat International is the only magazine to have featured her. At 96 metres, Vava II is the largest on this list. Designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon with interior styling Remi Tessier, she was built by Devonport, which was acquired and renamed Pendennis Plus.
