Vripack is designing and producing the superyacht, codenamed Penumbra, in close co-operation with Nakhimov. Sailing yacht Penumbra is picked to be one of the most truly innovative and original superyachts of 2009 and is bound to be a head turner. The yacht will be presented to press and public at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show 2009.

Bart Bouwhuis, the Director of Design at Vripack commented: “It might be hard to believe however based on the market research of Nakhimov it appears we have found a true gap in the yachting market. This project by its origin and nature is so incredibly fresh and new, yet honest and straightforward that many will say: “now, why did I not think of that”.

“We both were convinced from the very first moment that this concept carries an extremely high potential,” explains Sergei Dobroserdov, Director at Nakhimov. “The enthusiastic Team at Vripack took the out of the ordinary ideas and is now finalizing the design and naval architecture of the talk of Monaco.”

Both Nakhimov and Vripack are unwilling to disclose anything further about yacht Penumbra at this stage before the official unveiling. The yhave, however, confirmed that she is an actual yacht and not an imaginary concept for the sailing enjoyment of tomorrow.
