Hakvoort launches motoryacht Apostrophe

ADVERTISEMENT

Holland-based Hakvoort launched the 130-foot (39.7m) M/Y Apostrophe on April 13.

The exterior design by Reymond Langton features colored tones, black windows, a grey hull and white superstructure. Complex shapes in the profile combine with long-running lines from bow to stern to make Apostrophe look longer than 40m. Curved windows in the owner’s area on the main deck are mirrored in the sky lounge above.

The Art Deco interior, also by Reymond Langton, features ebonized walnut and makassar joinery with mother-of-pearl inlays, plus fine detailing in stainless steel, brushed nickel and leather. Apostrophe’s main entrance is an open stairwell with a custom chandelier.

“When we first signed the contract for Apostrophe five years ago we were living in a very different world,” said Klaas Hakvoort, co-director of the family-run shipyard, in a statement. “Soon afterward, the recession began to bite and the usually cooperative banks refused to finance the construction. Together with the brokers Moran Yacht and Ship, we came up with a unique solution. The fact that Apostrophe has already so successfully battled her first storm makes us all the more proud that she is one of the finest yachts ever launched by Hakvoort.”

The yacht is the first of three projects managed by Moran Yacht & Ship to launch at Hakvoort over the next few years. The others are the 61m Project Golden Age and the 63.6m Project Zeus.
