Norwegian Commercial Shipyard Building 82m Explorer Megayacht: Norway’s Vard commercial shipyard is currently constructing a Vard 1-08 platform that will be customized to fit the owner’s plans for an explorer yacht. Bannenberg & Rowell design devised the tough-looking exterior for the 82m project named Kilkea that will blend the platform’s seakeeping abilities with standard, modern superyacht features. With the ability to accommodate up to 36 guests, the vessel is expected to be launched in 2016.
The design will allow Kilkea to operate in remote locations around the world as she has superb ocean going capabilities that will ensure guest comfort during long voyages. She will be able to support guests and crew for as many as 30 days without land-based support. Low fuel consumption and a clean design notation allow her to explore environmentally sensitive areas, while her ICE-C classed hull also allows her to operate in light ice conditions. The vessel will comply with Passenger Yacht Code regulations.
Kilkea will have a system connected to two Azumith propulsion units for ultimate maneuverability. A top speed of 15.4 knots is projected, along with a comfortable cruising speed of 12 knots.
