33.8-meter sailing yacht "Neorion" launches 15-years after start of build

Another new launch but with a spotted history. This project is a 33.8-meter sailing yacht billed at the time as "Green Seagull" but launched recently as "Neorion". How is that possible? Back in 1999 the project started at Dutch yard Bloemsma van Breemen but during construction, it ran into trouble and never progressed any further. It took a new owner to take up the project in 2011 and pour the much-needed finances to finish work. 

The current owner hired Olivier van Meer Design to do the interior design as well as appropriate sail plan for the yacht. It was emphasized by the new owner that the vessel should be able to be sailed by a minimum of two persons. With the new design brief attended to, construction resumed and she relaunched as Neorion. She trails have been now completed and the yacht is actually embarking on her maiden voyage. Neorion boasts classic lines and is finished in white paint, matching her gleaming white sails and is contrasted by the browns of the wooden-work of the superstructure.
