New 50m project under construction is part of the US shipyard's custom series and follows on from the launch of 'Silver Lining' and 'Chasseur' last year.
Christensen Shipyards celebrated the joining of #hull 38’s keel and cabin at the company’s yard in Vancouver, Washington (US). The operation was completed on February 14.
This newest Christensen milestone marks the transition of the 50m full-volume yacht from two separate production bays into one of the yard’s finish bays freed last summer after the launches of Hull 38’s sistership Silver Lining and the 50M yacht, Chasseur.
The US shipyard has reported that hull 38’s high-gloss black walnut interior is well along in completion. Her interior bulkheads and walls are complete, as are a majority of the yacht’s plumbing runs.
Christensen Shipyard’s staging room is full of finished woodwork ready to be installed once the plumbing and wiring is complete. The yard anticipates hull #38 will be ready for launch by summer of 2018.
Utilising vacuum infused composite construction, hull #38 features high-quality cabinetry, stainless steel and stonework.
In addition, the shiopyard says #hull 38 features significant advances. While already among the quietest and most insulated yachts in production, Christensen says it has innovated extensive sound and vibration dampening, and added insulation to further control heat from entering the yacht’s structure to minimize 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.
