The nearly 300-foot M/Y Voyager, which had been hidden under shrink-wrap and scaffolding at Dania Cut Super Yacht Repair for almost three years, came out into the sunlight in early January.

Yacht enthusiasts were excited to see the extension and additions. The vessel has been extended from about 200 feet, and loomed large and long over other yachts in the Dania Cut-off Canal, including the 197-foot (60m) Benetti M/Y Formosa. (The canal was dredged in 2013 to 17 feet deep to allow for a 15-foot controlling depth and providing access for large vessels like this to reach shipyards on the waterway.)

The five-deck M/Y Voyager will be an expedition yacht and is expected to carry up to 70 crew members and specialized staff.

Formerly the supply ship M/V HOS Trader, the refit was towed out of the shipyard just south of Fort Lauderdale by Steel Marine Towing on Jan. 16. A forward, stern and two side tugs pulled the vessel to Port Everglades turning basin while a fifth boat traveled ahead. Voyager was then transferred to Dann Ocean Towing’s Stephanie Dann to head to a shipyard on Florida’s west coast.
