    81m "Kibo" was delivered recently as scheduled and left the shipyard already.

    Kibo was featured in a magazine recently. She has a nice interior but unfortunately no layouts were displayed.

    Kibo has to be one of the biggest yachts (excluding royal ones) without a jacuzzi/swimming pool.

    News is that a substantial extension of the shipyards facilites is in the process of planning! Once they get the administrative approval A&R will purchase parts of the the nearby Weser-Yacht-Club, a small marina. As part of the deal some berths will be relocated.

    They expand then shed F within the next 2 years so A&R is capable of building 90m + yachts.
    Possible that they intend to enter the 100m+ market with this facility expansion like other northern European shipyards did recently (OceAnco, Feadship) upon growing demand for these yachts.

    Altough I do not know the exact dimensions of the propsed expanded shed as yet.

    A&R thinks they cannot be left behind by OceAnco, Feadship who build in their size bracket.

    Thanks for the link! The interior is quite nice and contemporary, typical Terence Disdale style. Looks like the 'like' button was removed?

    Yeah definitely you can tell it is Disdale. It's interesting how some designers really have a signature look on the interior or exterior... like Disdale, RWD, Bannenberg Rowell, Art-Line... Alberto Pinto, you cannot mistake these interiors for anything else.

    I know BI listed 98m project in their Global Orderbook. However their numbers have not been always correct. I heard it would be a 105m project. I am not 100% shure on that though.
    If 98m or 105 m this project is the reason why A&R are expanding their facilities.

    Thank you for your photos. Did A&R by now begin to put their expansion proposal into action?

    Yes, work is in progress. The sheet pile walls have been set and dredging is presently being done in the remaining yacht harbour. The yacht club will be able to bring out their floating jetties and yacht harbour operation will not be hampered by the construction work. The extension of the syncro lift could not be seen from my position. A&R Extension.jpg

    Does someone know which of the projects is designed by Espen Oeino? The 72m or 98m+ project?

    More details from the extension of the yard and more pictures of Dartwo. In my humble English, I would write her name DartTwo, does have Dartwo a different meaning?

    Protective blue tape off the superstructure walls...now. The rails still tape up though. Can't tell if the German flag has been removed from the stern pole in the above pic.
