The number of people officially infected with Covid-19 has risen to 81 in Monaco: 4 cured, 10 hospitalised, 5 in ICU

Asia’s largest superyacht heading for Monaco

Asia’s largest superyacht heading for Monaco

By Staff Writer - August 17, 2018

Citing China Daily as its local news source, superyachttimes.com reports that the 88.5-metre superyacht Illusion Plus is heading to Monaco via Shenzhen in time for the Monaco Yacht Show, where she will be one of the largest vessels in attendance. The yacht was delivered by Pride Mega Yachts over the weekend of August 11/12 following the completion of sea trials in June in China’s Yellow Sea.

The largest yacht built in Asia was started on speculation by Pride Mega Yachts several years ago and built by Yantai Raffles Offshore Limited. News surrounding the project was relatively quiet following the 2014 announcement of her sale with Fraser and Bluewater. This changed earlier this year when brokerage company Y.CO announced its appointment as the central agent for the sale of the yacht. Since the brokerage company was appointed by the shipyard, this suggests that the project is back in the ownership of the yard.

The 3,603-GT Illusion Plus is designed by Rainsford Saunders Design from the UK, while Dutch offices Azure Naval Architects and Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design were appointed as naval architects and interior designers of the project respectively.

Her large volume of 3,603 GT is spread over six decks and accommodates 12 guests across six staterooms. With power provided by a Rolls Royce diesel-electric propulsion package, Illusion Plus can reach a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots. She is listed for sale with an asking price of $145 million.
