The world’s largest sailing yacht and she's to have a wooden hull and superstructure...

Design

Contracts for the design and styling of this 141m four-masted schooner were signed at the 2001 Monaco Yacht Show. We understand the intention is to start construction in Turkey in 2011.

OCTOBER 2010

On September 23 Dream Ship Victory signed a contract with Dutch firm Dykstra & Partners for the naval architecture and Ken Freivokh Design (KFD) for the styling of 'Project Dream Symphony'. If the 141m (462ft) project proceeds beyond the design stage she will rank as the world’s biggest sailing yacht by a considerable margin.
Contracts were signed between Valeriy G Stepanenko, owner of DSV and the guy responsible for the project concept, Gerard Dijkstra and Thys Nikkels on behalf of Dykstra & Partners, and Ken Freivokh on behalf of KFD.
It is hoped construction will start in 2011.
Dream Ship Victory is already working with the same naval architecture and design teams; three wooden yachts currently in build total 162m (531ft) – the 65m (213ft) Mikhail Vorontso is presently in fit-out in Holland and work is progressing on 55m (180ft) Princess Mari and the 42m (138ft) Imagination.
