In 1998, the former ship known as the evergreen and now known as the Attessa IV (ex Evergreen) was built with the help of the naval architects, Felix Buytendijk and Diana Yacht Design. In addition, Felix Buytendijk/Takashimaya created the interior design in addition to the styling of the exterior. Initially, her creation was for the chairman of the evergreen shipping.
It was not much time afterward following her unveiling before she was off to the Monaco Yacht Show. This consisted of the only visit the yacht had outside Asian waters. Generally, the ships location consisted of either Tawain, or Singapore. For the most part, the life of the ship consisted of being on sale.
This continued until the time the motor yacht was first acquired by her present owner as the yacht evergreen in 2007. When the motor yacht arrived in Vancouver BC to her now present owner, she measured 92 m. In addition, the seasoned boat owner renamed the motor yacht Attessa IV. Following this, on April 4th of 2007 the boat was put in for a complete rebuild.
Currently, the highly anticipated and longtime awaited unveiling of the Superyacht Attessa IV has finally arrived. Current expectations surround the incorporation of an unveiling to take place within Vancouver BC Canada on October 1, 2010. Presently, the reconstruction has taken three and a half years for them to complete. Throughout this time, a considerable amount of work has gone into the Attessa IV in order to restore her condition to new.
The collaborative effort of both Glade Johnson and the Washington Yachting Group (WYG) resulted in the newly completed interior, in addition to the concept behind the outside styling. The now 110.6 metres luxury superyacht started her refit in Seattle and is now considered among the Lloyds and MCA Classed.
Despite her large size, she continues to boast both elegance and style. Currently, she has the capacity to hold 21 crewmembers in addition to 36 onboard guests. She features a 1020 hull, which made from steel. Additionally she consists of a superstructure, which is made from of aluminum.
She is powered from twin-screw propulsion engine, which has a max speed of 22.6 and range of 6,369. Currently, she has a fuel capacity of 157,886 gallons. She is a beautiful and powerful ideal on the water. She has both the size and the significance of what it means in relation to large size. For the most part, this boat has it all. Therefore, this accounts for the high amount of anticipation surrounding the unveiling of the new and improved Attessa IV.
From current pictures, it appears this will be one of the more impressive unveilings. With her massive size and powerful appeal, she is highly looked forward to. October appears as one of the more exciting time for the Attessa IV and the owner with her long awaited completion finally over.
