The spectacular 65-metre sailing yacht Mikhail S. Vorontsov has been launched by the Dutch builder Balk Shipyard, in partnership with the Turkish shipyard, Dream Ship Victory. Mikhail S. Vorontsov yacht is a beautiful classic schooner, featuring concept design by Valeriy G. Stepanenko, naval architecture by Gerard Dykstra & Partners and interior design by Ken Freivokh.
The 53-metre bare hull of luxury yacht Mikhail S. Vorontsov had already been built in laminated wood by Dream Ship Victory in Turkey, and subsequently, has been transported to the Balk Shipyard in the Netherlands. The three-masted classic staysail rigged yacht Mikhail S. Vorontsov represents Balk Shipyard’s largest new construction to date.
Balk Shipyard has been commissioned to ensure superyacht Mikhail S. Vorontsov is completed to the highest Dutch standards of superyacht construction and is fully RINA classified.
Also built entirely in laminated wood, the Mikhail S. Vorontsov yacht’s unique superstructure generates an extraordinary atmosphere. The primary helm position is on the aft deck in the owner’s area, with a second navigation and communication centre located in the forward deckhouse for when privacy is required.
Mikhail S. Vorontsov yacht is fitted with aluminium spars and carbon booms. All eight sails are roller furled and are operated via a hydraulic semi-automatic system that allows for easy handling of the 1478 m² sail area.
