When you are submitting a motor yacht to the World Superyacht Awards you always hope that she will become the winner in that specific category. Every person that is involved in designing and (re)building a yacht works hard to get the best out of his/her work. The hope to become a winner grows even bigger when you hear that the yacht is a finalist. And then, on the award evening itself, there is no better crowning glory when the lady speaker announces that your yacht is the winner! We are so proud of our team and all people that were involved in building Legend!

Just three months after her successful launch, expedition yacht Legend left for her maiden trip. With exterior design and naval architecture by DIANA she transformed into an icebreaking passengership with a 1B-Swedish/Finnish classification. She was lengthened in the stern by 3,60 metre, completely restyled by extending the superstructure and rebuilding the mast to make her sleeker and more attractive for future charter guests. More deck space is created for relaxing and enjoying the environment. Heavy cranes were added to lift all toys and tenders one can imagine. The aft deck was transformed into a fully classified helicopter deck. Above that she is fully Lloyd’s and SOLAS certified.

She left Icon Yachts in Harlingen last evening and went out into the Northsea for her first nautical miles. Within a short time she will receive her first guests who can enjoy a safe and comfortable experience on board this amazing yacht. The fully classified helicopter deck on the aft deck, a swim platform and large swimming pool / Jacuzzi in the stern, a luxurious submarine and lots of watertoys and tenders strengthen the feeling of pleasure and excitement. The fitness room, movie theatre, bar, and a music corner with a Grand piano and other music instruments for nice live music offers enough for inside entertainment.

Legend is a fully Lloyd’s classified Class 1B icebreaking ship so she is capable to visit all areas of the world such as the Antarctic’s in safety. Her darkgrey hull gives her the elegance she deserves and makes her stand out beautifully in arctic areas. With a total length of 77.4 meters she is capable of carrying 30 guests in all comfort and luxury one could wish for, experiencing the trip of a lifetime.

On Saturday May 14, early in the morning, motor yacht Bijoux hits the water at Moonen Shipyards in
‘s-Hertogenbosch. She is the first in the Moonen Caribbean series and has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure. With her 30 metres in length, and a total of four cabins she is a perfect family and friends yacht. Her exterior is designed by René van der Velden, he gave the yacht clean and bold lines. A modern grey and white color palette gives her an exciting and sporty look. Her striking interior comes from the boards of Adam Lay Studio. Diana Yacht Design is responsible for the naval architecture, detail engineering, construction, system engineering and 3D piping. An enormous challenge was to design a large swimming platform in the stern with a size normally only seen on much larger yachts, it’s designed in such way that when the swimming platform is retracted it is invisible to see from the outside. The tender store, also situated in the stern, is capable to store a 5 metre tender.

Heliad II
[Click to enlarge picture.]

We are very proud and excited that once again one of our yachts is a finalist at this show. This year the most famous and glittering event of the year will take place on February 24th in Wattens, Austria. The designers perfectly translated the owners wishes into this practical no-nonsense yacht which is very pretty and provides a lot of luxury and comfort to her guests. She is a yacht that offers everything for an active but relaxing stay on board.

During the building period we worked closely together with the owners so we were able to refine the yacht’s style and features. M/Y Heliad II has been designed as a classic DIANA Yacht. Her flared bow and round stern are very recognizable for a DIANA design and give the yacht an elegant and timeless look. The designers challenged themselves to create a layout with 4 fully equipped decks, which isn’t often seen on a vessel only 34 meters long. The 8 meter beam is quite large for a vessel her size, but greatly improves her seaworthiness and optimizes interior space. Despite the relatively large beam the design still looks sleek and well proportioned. Another feature never before seen on a 33 meter yacht is the 5 meter tender, stowed inside the hull. It can be launched through a shell door on the starboard side using a sliding davit crane.

A lot of thought also went into the ships engineering and construction. The engineers put in great effort to make the construction easier for the craftsmen to build and for the crew to maintain after completion. The ship’s fuel tanks can hold a total of 38.000 liters, and give her a range large enough for a transatlantic voyage. All of this put together makes Heliad II a complete, easy to use, spacious super yacht with features normally only seen on larger vessels.

You can read more about her on her own page.

Tomorrow the Diana 408 will be delivered to her owner. The sea trial that was done 2 weeks ago went perfect. She's a true sea worthy yacht with all luxury and comfort one could wish. Eye catcher of this design is the owner's deck with the luxurious master stateroom at the foreside with a 270 degree panoramic view. The Diana 408 comfortably handles up to 10 guests, including the owners. On the lower deck we will find four double guest rooms, each with bathroom, crew mess with pantry and small galley. The main salon, dining room, powder room and nanny's cabin with bathroom will be on the main deck. And do not forget the Jacuzzi, 3 sunbathing areas, outside shower and small bar on the sun deck.

The yacht industry seems to be slowly recovering from the recession. We attended several yacht shows (Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, Monaco Yacht Show, China (Shanghai) International Boat Show) and noticed that during these shows the visitors increased and that the demand for new yachts expands. This is also noticeable in our office. The first new order we won is of a 34m yacht to be build in Turkey. The second order (code name: Jericho) is a 33.5m motor yacht which we've designed for a private client. This yacht has a maximum speed of 13.5 knots and a range of 3800nm and shall be built, finished and painted according to the internationally accepted best yacht standards. The spacious dining area, sunbeds, salon and bar easily handles up to 10 guests (including the owners). The guests stay in comfortable cabins and will be served by 4 crew. Besides that we are working with several shipyards on new inquiries. Because of the increase in work load we've also adopted two new employees. They are very experienced with the work we do and we're happy to welcome them in our team. 2D-construction, 3D-modelling and many other fields of yacht design are well known by them. Besides our new employees we also have two students that join our team during a couple of months. They're both working on their graduation project and we are pleased that we can assist them in this. They give us new insides, we think educating is very important to keep the quality of the dutch design firms this high. It's pleasing to see that a student learns a lot from our work in such a short period. When these students finished their internship with our company we certainly want to assist new students. If you're interested send an e-mail with your motivation to info@dianayachtdesign.com.

We would like to congratulate the complete building team, the team at WYG, the shipyard, the yacht designer Glade Johnson Design and team, the captain, and the yacht's owner. ATTESSA IV was originally launched in 1999 as Evergreen, and at the moment of (re)-launching she entered the world top 25 private super yachts by length.

This project is more than just a refit, it is a re-built, there is not much on the yacht what is left untouched. The complete interior, exterior and engineering were updated. In fact it is a new yacht with excellent quality.
