52 FT. ALTENA

It is not unusual for a client to return to us when he wishes a new design for his next motor yacht. When that happens, they usually are interested in a larger yacht, providing them with more space and more comfort.

This was not the case for this particular client; he desired a much smaller yacht. The reason: the client often navigates European inland waterways, and with a yacht smaller than 15 metres, he won’t be subjected to a Rhine Patent and the yearly health checks.

The length is measured over the actual hull. As we have designed the yacht with a free hanging swimming platform, rather than an integrated one, we could stretch the design by an extra metre, making the total length 16 meters. The yacht will be built by Altena Yachting, The Netherlands, and is scheduled for launch in July 2019.
