Hakvoort Launches new 40m superyacht APOSTROPHE

Dutch yard Hakvoort has launched 40m Apostrophe (YN247), built for a Russian owner. The yacht features an elegant exterior profile from the boards of Reymond Langton Design Ltd., which was also responsible for the contemporary Art Deco interior. With naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design and an owner determined to build the finest Hakvoort to date, Apostrophe is a testimony to what can be achieved through co-operation.

A Russian Orthodox priest blessed Apostrophe on Saturday 13 April 2013 in a ceremony at the Hakvoort yard, which was attended by the owner, his guests and the craftsmen responsible for her construction. A new client for Hakvoort with a rich experience in boat ownership, the owner decided to make the step up to a fully custom superyacht of premium Dutch quality. At the keel laying ceremony three years ago he had described the project as his ‘baby’ and pledged to push himself to the limit make this one of the best vessels afloat.
