Last week, Dutch refit specialists launched the completely rebuilt 31-metre explorer type motor yachtSandalphon.
The yacht was known before as project Gisele. Sandalphonstarted construction in Brazil and in 2015. arrived at Balk Shipyard where she was completely stripped down and lengthened to her current measurements. The vessel was essentially cut in half – twice. A precise incision amidships and another aft made it possible to add roughly four metres of new ship to Sandalphon. Balk Shipyard and Azure Naval Architects redesigned a variety of areas onboard as she started taking new shape. Azure played a big role in the redesig nof the guest spaces onboard. Azure handled also the interior arrangements and decor.
“This project has been challenging for my team. Stripping down a yacht and rebuilding it again might be a harder job compared to a new build,” says Daan Balk, CEO of Balk Shipyard. TheSandalphon rebuild marked the first collaboration between the yard and Azure Naval Architects.
Sandalphon is expected to be ready for handover at the end of May or June later this year.
