Kleven's 116-meter explorer yacht has been captured undergoing her first sea trials on the Norwegian Sea. The vessel is only a few weeks away from being completed on a technical side. Scheduled for delivery in 2017, she will soon cruise to Bremerhaven, Germany for interior outfitting.Launched in March 2016, the 116-meter is being built for Graeme Hart, New Zealand's richest man with a net worth of $7.6 billion according to Forbes. In the yachting world however, Mr Hart is best known as the owner of Ulysses, the 107-meter explorer delivered by Kleven earlier this year and near sistership to the 116-meter new build.Hart had placed the order for the 107-meter Ulysses back in 2013, with designers at the time saying that he had chosen Kleven due to its quality standards, delivery times and price point. Later in November 2014, Hart placed the order for the 116-meter.I am very pleased with the quality of the work that has been done by Kleven, and how our organizations have worked together to bring this exciting project to life.Graeme Hart said in November 2014Delivered earlier in 2016, Ulysses was listed for sale in June, ahead of the scheduled delivery of the 116-meter Kleven, at an asking price of $195,000,000.

Dutch superyacht designer Nick Mezas introduces a 74 meter custom motor yacht concept in his first collaboration with Amels. The inspiration to designing this custom project came from years of following and admiring the workmanship and quality of the superyachts from Amels. The starting point was to create a beautiful yacht for long-distance cruising in complete comfort, whether being out on the yacht’s expansive exterior decks or insideThe spacious interior and exterior areas are designed to be aesthetically pleasing and feature low beamy bulwarks with stainless steel railings on every deck, providing her 12 guests with the views of their surroundings as well as a sense of safety. The yacht’s exterior boasts long and playful lines, which flow through the design’s decks and which give her a modern yet timeless look. Two very distinctive design details are the slanted knuckles in the forward part of the bulwarks of both the bridge- and sun deck. Furthermore, these knuckles serve the purpose of guiding the bulwarks inward when moving aft. This means more natural light and even greater views for guests relaxing in the interior areas on the owners- and bridge deck. Another detail which contributes to the yacht’s design is the bow’s top-plate which slopes gently back towards the yacht’s stern. This sloping line is accentuated by the hull’s two-tone white and dark grey color which unites the hull and superstructure in a clever way. The yacht hosts an expansive 240 square-meter dedicated owner’s deck. This luxurious deck has it all: from the spacious ‘his and hers’ bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes to the owner’s private office and lounge. In addition, the guest accommodation shows off two generously sized main deck VIP Suites and 3 lower deck guest suites with direct access to the full beam wellness centre and folding beach terrace. This provides guests with the opportunity to go out and enjoy the water with one of the many watersports toys or simply relax in all comfort and enjoy the views next to the water’s edge. It does not end there either, the elongated main deck aft’s 180 square meters makes for one big party area with a bar, dance floor and a 6.5-metre infinity pool. The bridge deck also indulges guests with a shaded seating area overlooking the bow and another large lounging and sunbathing area aft which also serves as the yacht’s helicopter take-off and landing platform.The vast sun deck shows off a stylish combination of both a Jacuzzi and sunbathing area as well as two spacious lounging areas, providing guests with a great vantage point whether cruising or at anchor, which is excellent for guests when raising a glass of wine and relaxing.Photos by Nick Mezas Yacht Design

During the latest Monaco Yacht Show VSY proudly presented its brand-new 83-metre project.This project leads into yet another dimension – going beyond fashions and trends – with the idea of satisfying the owner who demands something more – not only a status symbol but also a fresh interpretation of style itself and what it means to experience life at sea in all its fitful moods and seasons.With her powerful yet refined look, the VSY 83 metres exudes strong personality, offering stability, safety, extreme comfort on board and a range of up to 6,500 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 12 knots (18.5 knots maximum speed).Her external lines have been entrusted as usual to Espen Oeino and to Laurent Giles for the naval architecture, while all the engineering is VSY. This 2,650 GRT project, length 83 metres, max beam 15.60 metres, proposes and reinterprets the stylistic features of the award-winning younger sistership, Stella Maris, with various hints at the modern explorers.The steel hull, which comes from a new one-metre wider platform, is reproposed in charcoal grey to enhance design impact. The internal layout is divided into staggered decks for greater volumes and floor-to-ceiling windows, creating very light open spaces which lend greater fluidity of movement and visual continuity both inside and out.The helideck is certified HCA /MCA for Agusta Westland 169 aircraft allowing 24-hour operations.This 83 metres carries forward and enhances all the technologies already developed by the Italian shipyard in terms of engine, pollution, treatment and disposal of waste water. A direct and closer relationship with nature and the environment, implicit in the explorer philosophy, is also assured thanks to the impressive beach in the stern area, with 180 square metres of surface in close proximity to the sea and the abundance of open-air spaces (979 square metres), it features a spa on the sun deck and a large open-air swimming pool on the main deck aft.The two 35ft large tenders, a limo and an open, are housed in the garage next to the beach club, freeing up additional space at the stern to the advantage of the many leisure activities available to owner and guests.There are also all the assets qualifying tip-top service excellence on board: acoustic comfort, the finest entertainment systems, accessible from each cabin, from the gym to the wellness area with hammam, sauna steam and massage room and the sophisticated Kongsberg control system for the integrated management of navigation instrumentation, communication and automation. This superyacht complies with the highest standards of certification – Lloyd’s Environmental and Ice Class 1D – which entitles exclusive access including to protected marine areas.
