Custom Yacht Builder Chooses Semi Custom Route to Fame and Fortune.


Over 137 years the Blohm+Voss shipyard in Germany has built almost 1,000 extraordinary vessels, including many fully custom, iconic superyachts, always with an unwavering obsession with quality.

More recently, following the lead of the Dutch yards and working in conjunction with Eidsgaard in London, they have researched and developed a design that incorporates innovative engineering into a, semi-custom, 80 metre superyacht.

the Dutch yards of Feadship and Amels each build semi custom superyachts but this is the first time the German yard has followed this route towards production yachts.

The BV80 builds on proven engineering with added flexibility. While the hull, machinery and superstructure are pre-engineered, there will be many areas and elements that can be customised to the owner’s personal requirements.

Patrick Coote Sales and Marketing Director at the yard said, “This is not a mere ‘concept’. Following a long period of detailed, behind-closed-doors planning, the first BV80 is already at an advanced stage of development. Potential owners will be pleasantly surprised by its short lead-time.”

The BV80 will be officially unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show but in the meantime, here is a sneak preview:
