Construction begins on 216' steel hull
Delta Marine, builder of one of the world’s largest yachts—the 240' Laurel—recently signed and sealed a contract for a 216' (66m) yacht with an ice-strengthened hull. The Delta Design Group will complete the naval architecture, space planning and exterior styling with special attention to outdoor spaces. The yacht will feature a fold-down fully equipped beach cabana at the stern, an extra large sun deck with pool and a private owner’s deck off the master stateroom with floor-to-ceiling windows. Diane Johnson Design is working on various interior themes, incorporating raised paneling, beamed overheads, fluted columns and polished finishes in traditional veneers. Additionally, the spaces have been planned for multiple uses and will easily be convertible for entertaining large or small parties. Mechanically speaking, this yacht will boast all the usual suspects, including a 50,000-gallon fuel tank that will give this transoceanic ship a 5,000-nm range at 12 knots. Delivery is expected in 2013.
