Holland Jachtbouw will be attending the Monaco Yacht Show this week, and also the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show later in October. The company will be on hand on Stand QT20 on the T-Central Dock, sharing the latest news and developments in the shipyard, including expansion of build halls, exciting launches scheduled for 2015 and the latest successes of sailing yacht Rainbow on the race course.
Holland Jachtbouw Fleet in and around Monaco during the Monaco Yacht Show 2014:
M/Y Calliope on berth T22 – T-Central Dock
Launched in the summer of 2010, the 42-metre charter yacht Calliope is an exceptional semi-displacement vessel. Commissioned by repeat clients, she combines all her owners’ rich cruising experiences onboard Cassiopeia yacht with the very latest thinking in superyacht construction. Innovative demands in terms of customisation and quality included a highly specified and fully integrated bridge.
The J Class superyacht Rainbow moored nearby in Villefranche and available for viewing on 24th and 25th September – by appointment only
One of the yard’s most iconic projects to date is the build of the J-Class yacht Rainbow. A replica of the famous J designed by William Starling Burgess which was commissioned by Harold Vanderbuilt to defend the America’s Cup in 1934, which she won against charter yacht Endeavour.
Dykstra & Partners were asked to re-design superyacht Rainbow closely following the original plans but as an aluminium yacht with a carbon mast, boom and rigging and a luxurious interior by deVosdeVries. She was built to Lloyds Register and MCA classification so that the owner could use her for racing and luxury yacht chartering.
Also in the area S/Y Shogun (formerly YII)
Designed by Bill Dixon, charter yacht Shogun was built to meet the owner’s specifics for a sleek, uncluttered yacht with a contemporary, minimalist appearance. This was achieved with a low profile deckhouse and a range of features such as a concealed bimini and dodger spray hood – designed by the team at HJB, recessed headsail furlers, a through hull anchor system, pop-up cleats, deck recessed Genoa tracks and concealed hinges for the hatches.
Also in the area M/Y Life Saga
She looks and feels magnificent after a comprehensive 18-month rebuild at HJB. During sea trials Life SAGA yacht’s noise and comfort levels were beyond even the yard’s highest expectations and the yacht handles superbly. Life Saga returned to Holland Jachtbouw in 2012 for an interior makeover.
