 Second largest wooden Sailing Yacht…

Together with Balk Shipyard and the yacht’s accomplished captain and mate, Equiplite Europe succeeded in customizing the deck set up for the recently launched Mikhail S. Vorontsov. The yacht’s 53-metre bare hull was built entirely out of laminated wood.

The design concept of the yacht is by Valeriy G. Stepanenko. Gerard Dykstra & Partners are responsible for the naval architecture and Ken Freivokh took care of the interior design. Balk Shipyard has been commissioned to ensure Mikhail S. Vorontsov is completed to the highest Dutch standards of super yacht construction and for it to be fully RINA classified and equipped with the latest developments in deck and running rigging hardwar.
