The magnificent 96-metre VAVA II has left her Devon base after sea trials and handover, and is believed to heading to the Caribbean on her maiden voyage. The biggest-ever private yacht to emerge from a British yard, VAVA II launched at the Devonport Shipyard, now part of the Pendennis Group, in September. She features exterior styling by Redman Whiteley Dixon and an interior from Rémi Tessier. The build was managed by Burgess.

According to Devonport, the yacht features spacious tender garages forward and aft, and a variable-depth swimming pool, but there are few other details forthcoming about this very private yacht.
