During our visit to China last week, we completed some orders for a 48ft aluminium sailing yacht, in Shanghai we saw the new T-yacht 950, we did a presentation in the yacht club about how to choose a sailing yacht and we got an order for a refit for a 37ft sailing yacht in Hangzhou.
The order for the aluminium yacht was in the north of china and the yard allready started the building of a composite Icon 48, also designed by us. The yard builded a lot of motoryachts in the past and is expanding their facilities and workers.
In Shanghai the building frame, including the frames were set up. The prototype will be build in carbon fibre and the interior will be modern with wooden accents. The owner of this company organized an evening in the sailing club in the cool docks and I was invited to tell something about the principle of a sailing yacht.
At least we set up a new cooperation with a boatyard and the first order was a refit of their own 37ft yacht.
