Monaco 2012: Freire Shipyard - Pegaso

Though known more for its commercial vessels than its luxury yachts, Freire Shipyard—based in Vigo, Spain—was the perfect place to secretly build and launch what would otherwise have been a high-profile project.

Though known more for its commercial vessels than its luxury yachts, Freire Shipyard—based in Vigo, Spain—was the perfect place to secretly build and launch what would otherwise have been a high-profile project. H2 Yacht Design and Moore Design dreamed up her exteriors styling and her interior is by Mark Berryman. She is built for serious expedition with long-range capabilities (10,000nm at 14 knots), with extras such as a helicopter landing pad and space for a submarine. Built to comply with Lloyd’s commercial and research vessel standards, Pegaso was built to assist global research into different marine ecosystems. Five sumptuous main-deck guest cabins and three staff cabins complement the top-deck owner’s “penthouse,” while space for 22 crew occupies the lower deck. Pegaso is available for charter through Edmiston.
