Design

This dramatically modern high-performance 62m project is the result of a collaboration between DLBA (Donald L Blount & Associates), Mills Design and RWD (Redman Whiteley Dixon). The design was commissioned by the owner of a 45m.

NOVEMBER 2009

Chesapeake, Virginia-based DLBA secured the brief. Glendale, County Wicklow, Ireland-based Mills Design worked up the exterior, deck and appendage arrangements, while Brockenhurst, Hampshire, UK-based RWD developed the interior scheme proposals.
Preliminary weight estimates suggest she would have a displacement of around 370 tonnes.
