REV: The biggest explorer superyacht in the world taking shape in Romania
he team behind the 182.9-meter research expedition vessel REV has posted a construction update on the project. This world's largest superyacht is taking shape at the VARD shipyard in Tulcea, Romania. Week by week the REV vessel is slowly coming together. It currently sits in 6 large blocks and will be assembled over the coming months into one large superstructure. The ship is scheduled for delivery early 2021.Built for environmental research missions in partnership with WWF Norway, the Research Expedition Vessel (REV) will also be available for charter for recreational purposes and expeditions. George Gill the Director of Miller Compton Maritime Ltd was asked by Norwegian businessman and owner of the project Mr Kjell Inge Røkke in May 2016 to develop the enormous 183-meter research expedition vessel which is expected to secure the title of the world’s largest yacht, both in terms of length and volume.REV is a very important project for all Norwegians. As Norway is one of a world-leading maritime nation and has the opportunities for taking on a global leadership role for exploring and taking care of the ocean. The Prime Minister of Norway supports the vision that ‘oceans are under pressure due to climate change, overfishing and waste pollution. To ensure the future growth of the ocean economy, we need to harvest resources in a sustainable way’.The Executive Secretary Vladimir Ryabinin of IOC of UNESCO also are very looking forward to REV: ‘It is exciting to know that a newest and most advanced research vessel will soon ply the global ocean and that she will be available to host scientists from all the world, especially from developing countries’.REV is a unique vessel: is designed to operate in remote and vulnerable waters for long periods without additional external support, the ship will be equipped for research and investigation of the entire marine ecosystem. The ship has the range and equipment to explore, document and collect. It also applies the Polar Code adopted by The International Maritime Organization for ships operating in Arctic and Antarctic conditions and can operate autonomously for 114 days. Depends on request of the project the capacity of the ship is up to 90 persons total including passengers, crew, scientists. Designed by famous Espen Øino, REV is tailored for research and expedition activities. Her robust exterior lines and modern features ensure she is able to cruise in arctic and tropical areas alike, with a hull built to ICE PC6 for navigation in ice. Two helipads can host drones and helicopter, while overhead cranes can lift and launch equipment weighing up to 20T over the side. Her drop keels enable echo sounders and sonars to be placed in undisturbed water below the hull for research of the world’s ecosystems, and built into her stern is a trawl hangar and pelagic trawling system.Built to the highest standards for both expeditions and recreational purposes the ship includes such features as a hospital with a medic cabin, High-tech equipment to monitor and survey marine areas, currents, the seabed, fish and plant life, while cutting-edge laboratory facilities enable onboard analysis. There will be an auditorium for lectures, and the capacity for live streaming, also a Moonpool, an eco-harvesting system for live catch and release of biomass and pelagic samples, and an underwater hydrophone system for listening to ocean mammals.Photos via REV Ocean

Baltic Yachts starts building 44, 6-metres sailing yacht Baltic 146 in Jakobstad
Construction of the new 44.6-meter full-custom sailing yacht Baltic 146 has begun this month in Yakobstad, Finland. Baltic 146 is a new composite superyacht, developed by Baltic Yachts taking into account the design of cruise ships, and it will have a naval architecture and interior design from famous design studio Judel / Vrolijk & Co. This is the third largest project after 66.7 meters Hetairos (2011) and 55 meters Pink Gin 175 (2017). This superyacht will be built using advanced composites using epoxy SPRINT and pre-preg carbon with a lightship displacement target 167 tons. Due to the reducing draft to just 3.4m and twin rudders, the yacht has the opportunity to facilitate manoeuvring in the port. The forward-facing pull-propeller can be rotated and used as a stern thruster, so it can be safely said that this yacht is designed for long-distance, independent global cruises, and for this purpose, along protective solid bimini has been developed that extends over most of the cabin. The hull is built in four parts; the lower section, the two side sections and the transom section, which will cover the stern of the yacht. “Building the yacht in sections means our workers can access the mould more easily for improved accuracy and speed,” comments Baltic Yachts.The lower deck consists of a master cabin with three additional double cabins. Inside there is a lounge area and a dining room, which receives a lot of natural light from the surrounding windows and skylights. The cab is equipped with chairs for outdoor recreation and lunch. They have dual controls, and all have skylights for optimal natural light during sunny days. The foredeck hosts a tender well for storing the tender and leaving the deck area flush for sunbathing, observation and exercise. The production of the new yacht will take about 24 months and goes on a cruise after its launch in 2021. Baltic Yachts currently have two additional custom projects under construction: the Baltic 142 Canova and Baltic 112 Liaratake are going to be launched later this year. Main features of Baltic 146: Carbon composite construction - Covered cabin for outdoor life - Four spacious double cabins - Third largest yacht by volume built by Baltic.Baltic Yachts/2021 LOA: 44.60mLWL: 41.80mBeam: 9.35mDraft: 5.9m/3.4m
