CCN YACHTS is a part of CCN INVESTMENT HOLDING www.ccnholding.com. CCN YACHTS decided to built M/Y “Day’s”, 68m, as the first unit of ICE YACHTS which ranges between 65 and 75m, in collaboration with AES YACHT shipyard www.aesyacht.com.
The joint venture works together with the internationally awarded Italian design studio, HOT LAB YACHT & DESIGN for the interior and exterior design in order to create a brand new project for a private client. The truly experienced Turkish company ENDAZE MARINE ENGINEERING has been named for the naval architecture of the vessel.
The project management for the client’s side is carried out by Mr. Jacques Potgieter and Mr. Iain Flockhart. With their extensive sea going and operational management experience in the industry, their input is vital to ensure that the vessel is being built to an acceptable “industry standard” and that it would be functional, safe and cost effective to operate and maintain. This was made easy by them being involved in the preliminary stages of the project more than 6 months before any steel was cut.
