Christensen Shipyards has launched the 164-foot superyacht D'Natalin IV (part of the 160 Custom Series) at its facility in Vancouver, Washington. Sea trials and final fitting out are next, with delivery to the owner scheduled for May.

"We are excited to see the D'Natalin IV sitting in the water perfectly on its lines as designed," Christensen CEO Joe Foggia stated in a press release. "The blue hull is flawless in its finish and really strikes the attention of anyone who sees it. We are appreciative of the owners who chose Christensen to build their fourth superyacht."

The interior aboard D'Natalin IV is by Portland, Oregon-based Carol Williamson and Associates, whose other recent work includes the 163-foot Christensen Casino Royale and the 191-foot Trinity Carpe Diem. On D'Natalin IV, the firm used high-gloss, raised-panel walnut cabinetry and inlaid stone floors.

Christian Bakewell of Merle Wood & Associates represented the owner both in the purchase and construction. “Prior to contract signing, we spent over two months writing a very detailed build specification," he stated in a press release. "This has allowed the shipyard and owner’s team to meet the very aggressive build schedule outlined in the construction contract, while keeping the quality to very exacting standards. The results speak for themselves. She is an absolutely gorgeous yacht.”

There is no word yet on whether_ D’Natalin IV_ will be offered for charter, but the owners have offered their previous builds in the past. Stay tuned for further information here on our site, or click over to www.christensenyachts.com.
