Busy months for MCM's project-management teams...

Industry News

No fewer than six of the operation's yachts have concluded/are concluding in a four-month period ‒ four in Holland, one in New Zealand and one in Finland.

JUNE 2010

Newport, Rhode Island-based Marine Construction Management (MCM) project managed the following yachts that have just delivered or are close to delivery:
The first away was Alloy Yachts’ 58.4m (191ft) Dubois-designed sloop Kokomo. She left New Zealand a few months ago and is currently in Tahiti.
Then there was Vitters’ Lady B, a high-performance Dubois 44.7m (147ft) cruising sloop with a Rhoades Young interior. She was handed over just recently and is already cruising with the owner on board in Norway. She is another in a long line of MCM/Dubois projects built at the Dutch yard.
Holland Jachtbouw (HJB) is close to handing over Calliope, a Bill Langan-styled semi-displacement 42.3m (139ft) motoryacht. See the below photo. She will be handed over in the coming weeks, when the owner intends to take her to the Mediterranean.
Baltic Yachts in Finland is sea-trialling the 34m (112ft) carbon sloop Nilaya; that's the top picture here. With styling by Nauta Yachts with naval architecture by Reichel/Pugh, this performance cruiser is for a very experienced yacht-racing owner.
Then there is Marie, the 55m (180ft) Hoek-designed and Vitters-built classic ketch. She is very similar to the same yard's Adele, which was also project managed by MCM. She will launch in late June with a handover shortly afterwards.
And also imminently handing over is the new 43.4m (142ft) Hoek-developed J Class Lionheart, which is scheduled to complete for July at Claasen Jachtbouw in Holland.
To date MCM has managed the construction of over 65 large yachts and presently has six more in build.
