Today, October 25, saw the latest yacht constructed by the respected German shipyard Blohm + Voss, the impressive 82-metre motor yacht Project GRACEFUL, leave her building dock. Mega yacht GRACEFUL is currently being prepared for sea trials, scheduled for December 2013. She is due to be delivered at the end of December 2013.
On May 18, 2012, the GRACEFUL yacht’s hull was towed by tugs to Blohm+Voss and docked in Dock 6 at the Hamburg-based shipyard to be completed and fitted out.
Over the last 18 months, luxury yacht GRACEFUL designed by H2 Yacht Design has been fitted out both inside and out by Blohm+Voss in close cooperation with both the owner and Dörries Maritime Services.
One of the many reasons why the owner decided to have the GRACEFUL superyacht completed by Blohm+Voss was the unique and complex equipment and design characteristics – one of which is a 15 x 3m indoor pool, which can be converted to a dance floor by raising the pool floor. In addition to a separate owner’s area with a duplex suite and direct access to the sea via a folding balcony, the yacht has two VIP and three guest suites for a further 10 guests.
