Yacht launches…perhaps one of the most exciting events when you are lucky to be one of the first to see these huge new superyachts unveiled. The blood, sweat and tears that go in to producing these beasts is nothing short of incredible and nothing can replace the awe of seeing one of these beauties for the first time. Here we talk about the launches from the recent past, those already upon us and coming in the near future. These are yachts that effortlessly cruise the Antarctic and dock near the Galapagos with timeless elegance. Check when these launches take place and what the yacht has in store for upcoming charter destinations.

Lion Spirit, 57m/187ft, Sunrise Yachts

Previously called Lionwind when first built in 1993, this 57 metre new refit was underway at Sunrise Yachts in Antalya in Turkey. She was due for delivery in March 2016 after exterior designer Espen Oeino worked his décor magic. The Lion Spirit is a steel and aluminium yacht which has been lengthened so that the owner and his family can enjoy a suite on the sundeck and with sliding glass panels that open to the accommodation areas. There is a nicknamed “crazy room” that has been filled with crazy colours and shapes by the interior designer Reymond Langdon, who has also helped install the photographic studio and extensive dive shop for the owner who is a highly skilled scuba diver. Look out for the Lion Spirit as a private charter in the future.

After weeks of preparation, it took only 3 hours for the PT-138 hull 02 to be completely infused. The advanced construction method of composite G.R.P. with carbon fiber reinforcements is believed to be the largest single piece epoxy infusion in the world and was completed at the factory in China under the auspices of RINA.

The Prout design PT138 is fitted with a Caterpillar C-12 on the center hull and Steyr Hybrid diesel engines fitted on the port and starboard wing hulls. The vessel achieves a cruising speed under power of 15 knots. Computer polar projections indicate excellent boat speeds under sail ranging from the low teens to the 20-knot range with 814.7 sqm  (8,771 sqft) of sail area.

The PT-138 sailing trimaran superyachts are expected to be delivered in late 2011 and in 2012 respectively.
