Christensen Shipyards is proud to announce the delivery of the 160’ (49.9m) tri-deck custom series D’Natalin IV yacht (Project C-2014). Luxury motor yacht D’Natalin IV was handed over to her owner in Gig Harbor, Washington, on May 27, 2014.

After intensive sea trials in the Pacific Northwest, the lastest Christensen 160’ Custom Series was christened D’NATALIN IV by her owners in a ceremony at Gig Harbor Yacht Club. With a distinctive dark blue hull, and exterior styling from the boards of Christensen’s in-house naval architecture team, she is at once modern and classic, featuring a mascluline reverse-shear bow seamlessly tied to more classic elements through the mid and stern sections. Both hull and superstructure are of composite contruction using the shipyard’s proprietary vacuum infusion techniques.
The strength and grace of luxury yacht D’Natalin IV which define her exterior styling are expanded upon in the interior where Carol Williamson and the owners created a transitional interior design combining traditional raised-panel millwork with furniture and fabrics that are more contemorary. The result is a timeless and elegant design which will never go out of fashion. The majestic and glamourous D’Natalin IV was built with the exceptional attention to detail and focus on in-house craftsmanship that has become synonomous with the Christensen name.
“We are so happy to have D’Natalin IV be the first Christensen Shipyard Custom Series Yacht delivered since the 2011 launch of Remember When. This magnificent yacht with its bold red, white and blue exterior motif symbolizes American strength and perserverance, both halmarks of the Christensen brand. The owners of D’Natalin IV were wonderful to work with and are true American patriots for investing in such a beautiful Christensen yacht. We truly appreciate where we are today, because of our valued customers.” Joe Foggia Christensen Shipyards, Ltd.
Comment from the owner – “Christensen outdid themselves in delivering the most advanced yacht in their history!” “My family and our project lead, Christian Bakewell, worked very hard with the designers and engineers to get the details right. I could not be more pleased with the results. The layout of her four spacious decks make D’Natalin IV the most comfortable yacht I have ever owned, and I never get tired of staring at her beautiful blue hull”.
“From the outset this was to be a family yacht, so it was only fitting that the owner and his entire family were involved in every important design decision. Because they are such gracious and appreciative people, there was this very real sense among the entire build team that everyone just wanted to work that much harder for them. Seeing the broad smiles on the faces of the whole family as we walked through the finished product together for the first time was a very gratifiying experience for me.” Christian Bakewell, Merle Wood and Associates
“There was this great collaborative experience in meetings with the owners which allowed us to integrate their love of the traditional with more contemporary styling cues…the final design is elegant, yet inviting and comfortable.” Carol Williamson, Carol Williamson & Associates
