Vripack and Nordhavn unveil the concept their first metal superyacht built in steel and aluminium

Dutch design studio Vripack and US builder Nordhavn have reportedly unveiled the concept of their first metal superyacht Nordhavn 148 at this year's Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Built with steel and aluminium, the 45.1-metre long Nordhavn 148 features a flared bow and square and round windows that lend a chic aesthetic beauty to the yacht.

Nordhavn said the new model with 495 GT would “push the brand to go beyond prior engineering feats.”

In builder’s words, Nordhavn 148 is a crossover yacht that brings together the commercial benefit and aesthetic charm.

Vice president of Nordhavn’s Pacific Asian Enterprises division Jim Leishman said: “We’ve talked about building a larger boat for a while now. It would be something specifically meant for the most challenging worldwide conditions.”

Co-creative director of Vripack, Marnix Hoekstra, said: “We started by looking at the Nordhavn DNA, looking at what has been done and reimagined that into a metal yacht."

He added: "Nordhavn boats are renowned for venturing to remote off-the-beaten track destinations, and so the aim was to demonstrate to owners that this significant latest model has been conceived by a design studio that has a proven track record in this area.”
