Kleven ULYSSES aka U116: Norwegian shipbuilder Kleven Verft launched their second superyacht to the same owner after Ulysses in 2014.

Kleven U116 (370) was designed by Marin Teknikk in cooperation with New Zealand based Oscar Mike Naval Architects for Graeme Hart. The yacht has a length of 116m.

Update 5th December 2016: She arrived Stahlbau Nord in Bremerhaven, Germany for final outfitting like her smaller sister (Ulysses 107m (now ANDROMEDA). The vessel accommodates 66 people.

“It has been a great pleasure working with Mr. Hart and his team on this magnificent project. We highly appreciate the trust they have shown us by placing not just one but two orders with Kleven, in what was a new segment for us,” said Ståle Rasmussen, CEO of Kleven.

Some of the new tenders for ULYSSES

The big flybridge motor yacht is a Princess 68. The smaller open yacht is a VanDutch 40 or 55. I think it is the 40 feet version. The covered boat with the four outboard engines seems to be a HydraSports Custom Sueños. Comparing with the former yacht of Mr. Heart, this is just an excerpt of the complete tender fleet.
