Last Saturday the hull structure of the innovative sailing yacht was transported on a barge utilizing cradles designed and fabricated by TWD. The yacht, which is more than 100m in length and weighs ±1250 t, was transported to Oceanco for the next stage of fit out. TWD provided its complete engineering, procurement and fabrication management service to enable the delivery of the cradles within a very short time frame. Both, the design and construction have been certified by Lloyds Register.

The current cradles will also be used for the load-out transport and float-off of the yacht. Additional cradles, also designed and constructed by TWD, will be placed at the keel fin to compensate for additional support during load-out transport and float-off of the yacht.
