24: Attessa IV

Taiwanese businessman Yung-Fa Chang was this yacht’s owner before Dennis Washington bought the vessel and brought it home to Vancouver to refit. The rebirth of one of the word’s largest yachts took a few years, but it was worth the wait. Re-launched in 2010 and photographed undergoing sea trials off the British Columbia coast, she looked nothing like her former self.

Taiwanese businessman Yung-Fa Chang was this yacht’s owner before Dennis Washington bought the vessel and brought it home to Vancouver to refit. The rebirth of one of the word’s largest yachts took a few years, but it was worth the wait. Re-launched in 2010 and photographed undergoing sea trials off the British Columbia coast, she looked nothing like her former self. Attessa IV received a hull extension and complete restyling. Glade Johnson Design worked closely with the owner, his wife and project manager Captain Ted McCumber on both exterior styling and interior decorating. Washington is an entrepreneur and philanthropist with controlling interest in a consortium of privately held companies collectively known as the Washington Companies. He has a passion for refitting vessels and the extensive work was done at the Washington Companies’ Vancouver shipyard, which brought the 2,854-gross ton yacht up to MCA and Lloyd’s class standards. Her two Wärtsilä engines give her a maximum speed of 25 knots, and with new naval architecture by Greg Marshall & Associates who worked with Evergreen’s original architect, Diana Yacht Design, she has a 7,660-nm range at 16 knots. Attessa IV has traveled to many destinations in the past few months, and her visit to Belize in early 2012 with a few very famous guests onboard left quite a paper and digital trail.
