M/Y GRACEFUL 82m private yacht by Blohm+Voss

The eagerly anticipated yacht Graceful has left her berth in Hamburg on Friday, April 18 after the shipyard successfully achieved a challenging 23 month completion programme. This stunning yacht joins an impressive lineage of truly iconic vessels from the renowned yard and currently ranks as the 67th largest yacht ever to be launched.

Graceful was fitted out both inside and out by Blohm+Voss working alongside the owner’s representatives under the lead of Capt. Alexander Mozhayskiy. A unique, close-cooperation model was developed at the start of the project, thereby optimising the decision-making process, minimising delays and facilitating a unique scheduling system. This led to a very fast build time overall for a yacht of this size, quality and level of complexity.

Representing the ultimate in quality, engineering and yachting innovations, Graceful boasts design from the award-winning H2 Design Studio in London, widely recognised as one of the most technically competent design teams in the yacht world.

One of the many reasons why the owner decided to have the yacht completed by Blohm+Voss was the unique and complex equipment and design characteristics one of which is a 15 x 3m indoor pool, which can be converted to a dance floor by raising the pool floor. In addition to a separate owner’s area on two floors with a beach door terrace for direct access to the sea, the yacht has two VIP and three guest suites for a further 10 guests. The accommodation areas are equipped with the most modern audio and video equipment. One of the outstanding features in the silhouette of this yacht is its exceptional helicopter landing area enabling a comfortable arrival and departure for the owner and guests.​

Graceful truly sets new standards in the yachting arena. She offers extremely generous spaces both inside and out, her engineering is exceptional, her striking hull and fluid exterior lines are instantly recognisable and she hides a rich, elegant interior with exquisite detailing. She is currently heading south where she will undoubtedly take pride of place on the world yachting stage, turning heads for many decades to come.

Renowned ship builder Blohm + Voss has added another super yacht to its collection with the launch of the 82m Graceful. This is the first time the company is launching a yacht since it was acquired by Star Capital. The last launch by B+V was back in March 2010. This new launch underlines Blohm + Voss’s reputation as one of the leading yacht builders in the world.

The building of Graceful took a tumultuous journey even though in the end it only took 33 months to finish. Initial construction started in Russia but the unfinished hull was transported to Germany for finishing after the owner complained about the slow progress. B+V refit division and Dorries Maritime Services continued with the project in Hamburg.

Werner Dorries, CEO of Dorries Maritime Services had this to say when they joined the project, “Over the next few months our combined project management team will test, complete and deliver the yacht to the Owner. We are proud to have played a vital role in this project; M/Y Graceful truly bears testimony to the very highest standards in today’s yacht-building industry.”

The transfer was first done in 2010 when the hull was taken from Sevmash in Russia to Bremen in Germany. She stayed there until May 18, 2012 when tugs towed the yacht’s hull to Blohm + Voss in Hamburg where she was docked in Dock 6 for completion and fitting out. In the last 18 months, Blohm + Voss worked in close cooperation with Dorries Maritime Services and the owner to completely fit the vessel both on the inside and outside.

The superyacht is projected to reach a top speed of 17.6 knots and a range of 5,500 nautical miles.
