Britain's Largest Mega Yacht "Vava II" Splashes

On the 10th of September the shipyard Devonport Yachts soon to be named Pendennis Plus due to the re-branding that the Pendennis yard are under taking, launched the Largest privately owned Mega Yacht ever to be constructed in Britain. The yacht that can be seen below was originally called project P55 became formally known as Vava II 315ft.

With the name of the yacht confirmed as Vava II speculation about the new owner has arisen suggesting that it might have been commissioned by Ernesto Bertarelli a Swiss born pharmaceuticals magnet and owner of the ex Americas Cup team Alinghi as his old Mega Yacht was called Vava 155ft built by Feadship in 1996.

The owner has requested that the specs of the yacht be kept private, but we can say that the yacht was designed by Redman Whitely Dixon and the interior was designed by Remi Tessier who has produced some excellent designs in the past which include the recently launched Heesen yacht Satori 163ft and two Perini Navi's Parsifal III 177ft and Salute 183ft so expect the interior of Vava II to be of the highest standard.

Vava II will begin her sea trials in October and will be delivered to her owner shortly after that.
