This week saw the Palumbo shipyard in Malta welcome two outstanding vessels: the eye-catching 119m mega yacht ‘A’ and the breath-taking 88m charter yacht MALTESE FALCON, the latter available for an unforgettable mega yacht charter in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Europe.
Launched by Blohm + Voss in 2008, the 119m motor yacht ‘A’ boasts an avant garde exterior design by Philippe Starck. Her imposing reverse bow, striking superstructure, as well as unmistakable profile have made her one of the most recognisable super yachts in the world and she has chosen Palumbo’s Malta facility to perform winter works this year. Whilst in the shipyard, luxury motor yacht ‘A’ by Blohm + Voss will take advantage of Palumbo’s enviable facilities to scaffold and protect the entire vessel and re-spray it. The shipyard will also carry out some other routine jobs on this iconic vessel.
Luxury sailing yacht MALTESE FALCON has also reached the Palumbo shipyard in Malta to benefit from their expertise. With her 10 year Lloyds survey due, specialists at the busy shipyard are fully engaged in the various jobs and surveys needed to satisfy the requirements of this world class registry.
Launched from Perini Navi in 2006, the 88m superyacht MALTESE FALCON made the headlines for her innovative rig, sleek lines, as well as sumptuous interior. In 2007, she received the World Superyachts Award for Sailing Yacht of the Year, Best Sailing Yacht in the 45m + range, Best Interior Design on a Sailing Yacht, as well as a host of other prominent industry honours and accolades. The owner’s choice of service yard demonstrates the owner’s desire to maintain this high level of achievement.
