Hanseatic project manager Chris Blackwell told the newspaper PerthNow that Mr Krass may visit Perth when Smeralda conducts sea trials in the near future.
He said the yacht had taken over two years and 550,000 man hours to build.

“Our local ship building industry is proving to the world that WA has what it takes to build the most exceptional technologically advanced vessels.”
Smeralda was the first WA-built vessel to be launched from the $60 million floating dock at the Australian Marine Complex, which was opened by the State Government two years ago.
