Superyacht Conversion Project Unveiled

Superyacht designer Rupert Rainsford Mann of Rainsford Mann Design has been commissioned to work up the first phase of a conceptual study for the conversion of the 64.4m classic yacht Van Triumph.
Providing the ideal platform for conversion the yacht is currently located in Hong Kong.
The 64.4m Van Triumph built by Supercraft in Hong Kong during 1984 and was constructed to a high standard and was designed to withstand heavy sea states powered by 2 robust 1400hp Yanmar engines to give a speed of 15 knots.  Her fuel capacity of 260,000 litres carried in double bottom tanks gives the yacht a potential range of 15,000 nautical miles if driven at a more sedate 11 knots.

RMD have completed the re-design of the superstructure, while retaining the hull and equipment to create a modern, clean looking profile, which has been increased in length to 70 metres by extending the after end, to accommodate a beach club with a European styled transom.

The new layout caters for 12 guests, a large full beam owners cabin and large open spaces have been conceived with accommodation for a crew of 20.

Initial cost for the conversion project have been estimated at €20M Euro plus the purchase price of around US$12 Million making this a compelling project for superyacht owners looking for a 50 metre yacht but wishing it was 20 metres larger.

Sales broker Captain Alan Hagg of Paul Alan Yacht Consultants once described Van Triumph as the Hummer of the Seas.
