Leading Norwegian ship builder, Kleven Verft, has recently announced the launch of the 107m-exploration support vessel, which is currently being built at Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, Norway. The launch occurred on Saturday 30th August at Kleven Verft’s facilities.
The high-specification vessel is designed especially for long expeditions in rough waters and blends a robust, hard-working character with luxurious added extras. It was a landmark new contract for shipbuilder Kleven, which has a solid track record when it comes to building large and advanced offshore vessels, when it was originally announced in April 2013. The vessel is designed by Norwegian ship design company Marin Teknikk while H2 Yacht design has been commissioned to for the interior design.
Even though the yacht has been launched, she is nowhere near ready, with delivery actually expected for some time in the spring of 2015.
The 107m yacht consists of an impressive six internal decks above the waterline and weighing 7,000 tons, it is expected to be able to accommodate 60 people. Prominent features include a helipad as well as helicopter hangar, large swimming pool and large storage for a 21m tender on the bow. She will be finished to a commercial grade; meaning she will not have the glossy mirror finish seen on most superyachts.
