This yacht has been built and kept by her first owner since built in 1983. The very knowledgeable owner conceptualised her as a vessel to escape, survive and be self contained for ultra long distance in ultimate safety. Her specification exceeds Lloyds requirements by more then 25% in most areas of construction. She has been kept in Lloyds A1 class to date and is ready to go anywhere on the globe. Built to last in R41 steel corrosion resistant steel. A unique megayacht looking for a new owner keen to explore the remote areas on the globe. In need of an interior make-over VAN TRIUMPH is offered at a fraction of replacement cost, estimated to be approx USD 75 million. Viewing recommended.
We have asked David Bentley and Michael Sadubin of David Bentley Yacht Design to propose renderings for an interior made over of the salon/dining area to suggest a different and new look and to show what could be done to upgrade the interior.
David Bentley would be happy to discuss a complete interior/exterior upgrade with a new owner.
- VAN TRIUMPH is in class - Lloyds A1 - and MCA compliant. Her Lloyds inspections are current
- Maintenance follows Lloyds recommendations and is current
- The vessel is turn key for commercial or training use
- The vessel presents an opportunity to convert to a very long range explorer super yacht
- The vessel is helicopter capable
- Keen seller wants her sold

The hull was built of R 41 corrosion-resistant steel above the waterline. This has resulted in virtually no rust anywhere on the vessel. The hull was substantially overbuilt (approx. 25% in excess of Lloyds requirements) to meet the owners strict guidleines to survive anywhere under any conditions. Even with three compartments filled with water the vessel is designed to maintain full longitudal integrity. The key operational areas of the machinery and controls have a double skin hull as to be able to withstand an armed attack. All areas of the vessel have been continuously maintaned to Lloyds class requirements by mostly the same crew who built the vessel in 1983.
