82m Yacht “GRACEFUL” left the Building Dock

Hamburg, 25 October 2013 / 19 February 2014 – The latest yacht to be built by Blohm + Voss, under the project name GRACEFUL, has today left her building dock and is being prepared for sea trials. Delivery is scheduled for spring 2014.

On May 18, 2012, the 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, the yacht 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 yacht 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.
