107m/351ft luxury yacht ULYSSES from Norwegian shipyard Kleven has been sold to a new owner after a year on the market. Built in 2015, Dörries Maritime and Marin Teknikk were both involved with the creation of this exceptional superyacht. Oscar Mike was responsible for the exterior styling while H2 Yacht Design outfitted her interiors.
The previous owner of ULYSSES, Graeme Hart, put the yacht on the market in 2016, asking US $195 million. The reachest man in New Zealand, Hart has owned a number of luxury superyachts, including Grand Rusalina (ex Ulysses) built by Trinity Yachts. Another mega yacht to soon join his feel is Ulysses 116m, which is currently undergoing sea trials and is due for delivery in 2018.
M/Y ULYSSES was spotted in May off the coast of Gibraltar following a refit before the Mediterranean yachting season. Among the changes were a newly repainted and faired hull, new crew cabins, a new luxury tender and balconies added to the VIP suites.
Designed as an explorer yacht, ULYSSES is able to cruise for long periods without refueling. Up to 30 guests can live aboard, surrounded by amenities for relaxation and exploration that include a swimming pool and a helipad.
