Hakvoort Deliver Apostrophe

The Hakvoort shipyard in Holland have just delivered the 40m (131ft) Apostrophe. She was fully custom built with the owner working closely with Hakvoort and Reymond Langton Design who were responsible for her smooth exterior lines and her art deco interior. She will now embark on her maiden voyage to Norway where her owner will cruise the fjords for the summer months before heading back down to the Med to take her place at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.

Apostrophe is the owners first megayacht built by Hakvoort but he is an experienced megayacht owner. At the keel laying ceremony three years ago he had described the project as his "baby" and said he was going to push himself to the limit make this one of the best megayachts on the water today.

"He was certainly true to his word," explains project manager Alexander Speksnijder. "Every suggestion made by the interior and exterior designer was accepted regardless of cost, and there have been no compromises in any area of the boat. Looking back at the early renderings of the exterior colour scheme and the glass art aspects of the interior, it is extraordinary how Apostrophe has turned out to be everything the owner intended."

Her smooth exterior lines and large curved windows in the owner's area on the main deck and similar in the sky lounge above make you look twice at her thinking she has to be larger than 40m, surely. She has a magnificent open stairwell and custom designed chandelier that awaits guests as they enter through her main entrance. She will be able to accommodate 10 guests in 5 cabins which include the owner's master suite forward on the main deck and 4 guest cabins on the lower deck.
