Another Mega-Yacht contract awarded to Blohm + Voss
Hamburg, December 10th, 2004
Following the signing of a contract for a large Mega Yacht beginning of November 2004, Blohm + Voss have announced today the signing of another contract for the construction of a large Mega Yacht. The Mega Yacht, going by the Blohm + Voss project name SIGMA, has been assigned the construction number978 970 and will also be delivered in 2007.
The spectacular Phillipe Starck (France) design for this 118 m yacht will be constructed under the supervision of “Blue Ocean Yacht Management“ under the lead of Neil Wade. At present, the same company supervises the refit of the 114 m MY “Pelorus“ at Blohm + Voss for a different owner (Blohm + Voss press release dated September 29th, 2004).
The signing of this contract is the result of an intensified strategic orientation towards the construction of Mega Yachts and underlines the competency of Blohm + Voss. These two yacht contracts will guarantee a good utilisation rate in the fields of construction and manufacturing of Blohm + Voss for the next two years. The future industrial corporate structure of the merger of the companies ThyssenKrupp Werften and Howaldtswerke Deutsche Werft (HDW) that was announced as early as in October 2004 will ensure that the staff of HDW will also be involved in the contract works.
