You do not need to know her name to immediately connect the ownership of the 1983 Lionwind with the new build Lion Spirit.

The 57 metre new build is under construction at Sunrise Yachts in Antalya, Turkey and is due for delivery in March 2016.

Exterior designer Espen Oeino somehow seems to have captured the ghost of Jon Bannenberg in the lines of this stunning explorer yacht that is being built for the same owner who has enjoyed Lionwind for the last 27 years.

Lionwind was built in 1983 by Feadship as Azteca and later sailed as Alicia

An avid and high accomplished scuba diver who enjoys underwater photography, the owner has specified an extensive dive shop along with a room dedicated to the developing of photographic images.

Her exciting interior comes from Reymond Langdon who have embraced the owners love of the undersea by using a colourful palate and organic shapes the most dramatic of which will appear in the forward observation lounge already nicknamed the Crazy Room
