The 2014 Monaco Yacht Show will provide the setting for the premiere of Dörries Yachts’ new 48m custom design. Dörries Maritime revealed at last year’s show that it intended to launch its own superyacht brand with Dörries Yachts.
To set itself apart from other German shipbuilders that focus on larger yachts, the company has chosen to focus on the 48-meter concept, in keeping with its commitment to buildings beginning at 40 meters.
H2 Yacht Design of London has developed both the exterior and interior design concept for Dörries. A hybrid propulsion system with a single-level engine room is the most notable technical feature of this concept. This layout and propoulsion system is expected to free up to 50 square meters to allow for additional owner and guest space.
Dörries indicates that the building is competitively priced and notes that contract closing before the end of the year will result in delivery by 2017.
