The Dutch shipyard Vitters announced the launch of their latest 33m project. Now called Missy, the sailing yacht has a waterline length longer than the 30m length above the waterline.
The superyacht has a carbon-fibre hull which has been under construction for two years at Green Marine (Vitters' subsidiary in Southampton, UK). The sloop-rigged Missy is now at the facility in Harlingen where she will be prepared for sea trials. The outfitting stage of the yacht's construction is also going to take place at the Vitters Shipyard. The project is international in its scope and includes an engineering phase completed by Pure Composite in New Zealand.
It has a 7.5m beam and a draught which varies from 3.75 to 5.1m. Noise and vibration control has been taken into consideration while designing the superyacht. She is equipped with lightweight composite panels which have soundproofing and thermal insulating properties.
The exterior has been completed by the British design studio Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design, while the interior design is by Design Limited. Vitters MD Louis Hamming said of the project, "Missy has a spacious, comfortable interior in which a lot of attention was devoted to the efficient use of available space on board."
The project itself has been managed by Klaus Allebrodt of A2B Consulting and is due to deliver in 2016. Vitters currently has two more projects in build, according to the Superyacht Intelligence Order Book. This includes the 43.6m Svea which is a project in cooperation with Claasen Shipyard.
