Danish yachts’ Project 116 is in the last leg of its completion at Danish Yachts shipyard in Skagen. This 38m jet driven Espen Oeino design is expected to undergo sea trials of four months early this summer and will be unveiled later this year.

Project 116 has a carbon composite hull and superstructure and is currently concentrating on the smaller fit outs. There are two engines placed to their mountings along with the drive lines which will see its completion only after the M/Y has been released. These engines allow the yacht to move at a cruising speed of about 50 knots and a range of up to 900 miles.

The team behind this project is through with the infra red controlled passarelle after positioning it in the starboard side of the craft. The shipyard has also completed the work on the electronic cabling for the main bridge console and presently waiting for the final setting of the final panel layouts which have received the approval. Working closely on the vessel, the shipyard was also concerned about sending all the different manufacturer boards to Radio Zealand in Holland for installing all switches into one integrated panel.

The expert team of Danish Yachts is at the moment focusing on assembling the interior of the VIP and crew areas on the basis of their knowledge to create unique standards of woodwork which have made them famous world wide. In fact a lot of attention is also being paid by the shipyard’s project managers to adopt only those colors, forms and textures that give the exclusive superyacht an impressive, modern look while balancing the limitations of its weight.
