A Norfolk based luxury boat builder has completed the construction of its largest ever yacht.
The 65ft Maresia is set to take to the waves following an 18-month construction period at the Windboats Marine North Walsham site.
The state of the art yacht is due to be transported to Alicat Shipyard in Great Yarmouth on March 7, from where she will be launched the following week. Power cables may need to be raised along the route to allow for the transportation of the 20ft high vessel. The hull and superstructure are designed by Norfolk designer Andrew Wolstenholme and the interior styled by Ipswich based Synolo Design. Powered by twin 800hp engines, the vessel has been fitted with full hydraulic systems, including a wireless joystick control. After intensive sea-trials, Maresia will head to her home berth in Jersey, from where her owners will cruise extensively in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean.
