Previously known as Project 708, 55m superyacht SHINKAI has just been revealed for the first time. She's been moved from the iconic builder's shipyard in Aalsmeer to the outside dock for final outfitting before she begins sea trials. She is expected to be delivered to her owner later this year.
Boasting a sleek yet dynamic profile helmed by Vitruvius and interiors by Boutsen Design, superyacht SHINKAI is primed to be a launchpad for adventure for odyssey's near and far-flung (including taking on the North-West passage later this year) for an owner with considerable experience of grueling sea expeditions. She features an advanced sonar system for exploring deep below the ocean's surface, a steel ice-class hull and remains both fuel-efficient and self-sufficient during her voyages.
But that's not all. New additions to this bold vessel not seen before include a mast and a mammoth 7400kg tonne submarine, as requested by the owner. The latter will be retrievable by crane, which will be also used for the superyacht's tender, car and crate from the aft deck.
