Ocean Independence says the 125-foot Hakvoort Soprano is on schedule to launch from the Dutch shipyard this spring, after which she will open for charter in the West Mediterranean.

The new build is a displacement motoryacht with a canoe stern, built to combine traditional styling with modern technology.

Charter dates are open beginning in July, with accommodations for eight guests. The master and VIP staterooms both span the yacht's beam. The other two guest staterooms are twin-bed setups. Soprano will charter with seven crew.

Lowest weekly base rate: about $105,700.
