Peter Fetten, President and CEO of MV WERFTEN said that in the year 2021, MV WERFTEN and her sister shipyard, Lloyd Werft WERFT have successfully delivered two megayachts. He added that these multimillion-dollar projects have reinforced Germany as the only country manufacturing world’s largest and most luxurious megayachts.
Manuela Schwesig, Prime Minister of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania had christened “Crystal Endeavor” on June 26. Prime Minister Schwesig said that Crystal Endeavor was an example of highest-order craftsmanship and engineering. Chancellor Angela Merkel had laid the keel of Crystal Endeavor in August 2018 and it was expected that the yacht would be delivered by 2020 but due to the corona pandemic, plans got extended. Finally, on June 26, Prime Minister Schwesig handed over the ship to its owner, Crystal Expedition Cruises.
This 350 million euros luxury yacht has space for 200 passengers and has six restaurants along with a casino, a comforting spa, and ample shopping options. The yacht is offering a unique expedition experience by air and water with its two helicopters, 18 inflatable boats, and 14 kayaks. This luxury yacht also houses a mini-submarine that has the capacity of carrying six guests. As per MV WERFTEN, Crystal Endeavor is the most spacious luxury yacht in the world.
The ship will be starting its maiden voyage from Reykjavik on July 17. In the future, Crystal Endeavor will be traveling to Antarctica, Norway, the Arctic, South Africa, and Argentina.
Since the shipyard at Stralsund was taken over by Asian Parent company Genting Hong Kong in 2016, Crystal Endeavor is the first ship delivered and at the same time, it is also the last ship crafted by the shipyard for the time being. The spokesman of the shipyard said that the company is working to arrange finances for two more ships on the legs.
