Hakvoort Shipyard Launches Its Latest Yacht in Style

Diane M. Byrne

It is tradition for yachts to be christened with a bottle of Champagne, but sometimes owners add a little more to the ceremony. That was the case when the 130-foot Apostrophe launched at Hakvoort Shipyard. The owner invited a Russian Orthodox priest to bless his gray-hulled beauty, as well as those who plan to cruise aboard it. Apostrophe is the owner’s first megayacht. He previously enjoyed travel aboard smaller boats, and spared no expense when working to produce this magnificent vessel with Hakvoort and with Reymond Langton, which was responsible for the yacht’s exterior styling and interior design. That cost-is-no-object philosophy really shines through in Apostrophe’s interior, which treats eight guests lavishly. It is exquisitely fashioned in art-deco style, with abundant design elements in ebony, walnut, mother-of-pearl, brushed nickel, and more. Hakvoort expects the yacht to attend the Monaco Yacht Show in September. (www.hakvoort.com)
