Kingship has established themselves over many years as the foremost high quality yacht builders in Asia. In 2010, Kingship is very pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with long time friend Mr Donald Starkey and well established Azure Naval Architects in the design development of this new Kingship 156 ft (47.5m) yacht to be built under the 500 ton rules, making crewing of the yacht in that and other regions more manageable.

Within these constraints however, the yacht Kingship 156 lacks nothing that a 50+ metre yacht might have, being capable of sleeping 12 in 6 suites, having generous lounges and open covered deck spaces for entertaining, all accessible from a central staircase up to and including the part shaded sun deck with a bar/dining facility being served by a food lift and open Jacuzzi on the forward sunning area.

The styling is a break from the more recent yachts Kingship has created as it features a plumb bow and generous circular port lights on the forward main deck, the intention to evoke the feeling of a modern “gentleman’s yacht”.

Azure Naval Architects from the Netherlands has put maximum effort into the hull and superstructure lines of the superyacht Kingship 156 plan to create the maximum interior space within the 500GT restriction. New borders have been set whilst the optimized hull form will guarantee maximum comfort at sea. Advanced structure and system design, according to the latest Class Society requirements, are fully absorbed within the Design.
