Newest Christensen launch moves to finish bay

Christensen Shipyards has announced the successful joining of Hull 38’s keel and cabin at the company’s yard in Vancouver, Washington this week.

The transition of the 50m full-volume yacht has moved from two separate production bays into one of the yard’s finish bays, freed last summer after the launches of Hull 38’s sister ship Silver Lining, and the 50m M/Y Chasseur.

According to Christensen, Hull 38’s high-gloss black walnut interior is well along in completion, and her interior bulkheads and walls are complete, as are a majority of the yacht’s plumbing runs. Christensen’s staging room is also reportedly full of finished woodwork, ready to be installed once plumbing and wiring is complete.

The shipyard anticipates that Hull 38 will be ready for launch by the summer of 2018. 

In a recent press release, Christensen said, “Besides the usual high-quality cabinetry, stainless steel and stonework, Hull 38 features significant advances. While already among the quietest and most insulated yachts in production, Christensen has innovated extensive sound and vibration dampening, and added insulation to further control heat from entering the yacht’s structure to minimise the need for power-consuming air conditioning. 

“Like all Christensen yachts, Hull 38 comes fully equipped with elevator, tenders, mooring lines and fenders. She is a full ABS vessel with a 4000nm cruising range.”
