Measuring 108 meters (354 feet), the concept project shown at right, referred to as the Devonport One-Ten, may be only a rendering so far, but the UK-based yard says that if it signs a contract soon, it could build and hand over the yacht as early as 2011.
Ten guest suites are forward on the main deck, with a saloon aft leading out to a pool and seating/sunning area. Nearly the entire deck above is the owner's, featuring an office, gym, sauna, private dining room, and a personal assistant's cabin. While a Middle Eastern client was the target buyer when Redman Whiteley Dixon's team put pen to paper, both Devonport and the designers say that the One-Ten can be adapted to any nationality. For example, the hammam (Turkish bath) on the lower deck can be a sauna.
Meanwhile, work continues on Project 55, a 96-meter (315-footer). Redman Whiteley Dixon is responsible for the exterior styling and crew arrangements, while Remi Tessier is overseeing interior design. Devonport often guarantees clients confidentiality, so no further information is available. (In fact, Devonport readily admits "our portfolio includes some of the least-known projects!")

Hull #603, an unnamed 126-footer, is anticipated for completion this month. She's part of Broward's Global Series, featuring walkaround decks, a side-opening tender garage, and MTU M93 powerplants. All of the yard's launches are built in aluminum.

The builder, located in Cherbourg, France, has two Andrew Winch Designs projects in the works. The first, slated for a fall delivery, is Slipstream, measuring 60 meters (nearly 197 feet). The other is Project 802, with the same LOA as Slipstream. She's expected to be ready next spring.

Slojo, a 156-footer that will be embarking on an around-the-world trip, should be handed over to her owners within the next few weeks. Another delivery this year is the 124-foot Marama. Both are fiberglass yachts.
