Launch MY Explora

Launch MY Explora

In November 2016 MY Charisma came to the premises in Urk after her Owner granted Balk Shipyard the refit. As soon as she was in the refit facility her new Owner decided to change her name into MY Explora. Very applicable as her Owners plan to explore the seas with her. MY Explora is a 46.3m motor yacht custom built in 1985 by Feadship at the Royal van Lent yard.
Sandalphon launched

Sandalphon launched

This unique project cannot be framed as a refit or as a new build but is the perfect example of a rebuild. In 2015 Sandalphon (also known as Project Gisele) came to the premises in Urk after her Owner granted Balk Shipyard the project due to its good reputation as a refit and rebuild specialist and its heritage. Now Sandalphon is ready to be launched and to discover the world.
