New Launch: Blohm & Voss 118-meter Project “SIGMA”
Radical Reverse-Bow Yacht in Completion Stages
Following the signing of a contract for a large megayacht in beginning of November 2004, Blohm + Voss announced the signing of another contract for the construction of a 118-meter Megayacht’ project “SIGMA”. This radical reverse-bow yacht, with lines striking similar to a submarine, was recently splashed leaving some wondering if it was intended to float or submerge.
The spectacular Phillipe Starck (France) design for this 118-meter yacht was constructed under the supervision of “Blue Ocean Yacht Management“ under the lead of Neil Wade. The same company also supervised the refit of the 114-meter superyacht “Pelorus“ at Blohm + Voss for a different owner.
