Classic superyacht Nahlin celebrates 91st birthday
The extraordinary motor yacht was part of a fifteen year campaign to rescue the steamship from dilapidation in Romania, in which her designers G. L. Watson & Co, were the major instigator. Nicholas Edmiston and a yachtsman named William Collier discovered the vessel in dire straits, and after 15 years of negotiation, returned the vessel to the United Kingdom in 1999.
German shipyard Nobiskrug undertook the body of the restorative work during a monumental rebuild between 2005 and 2010, while G. L. Watson & Co oversaw and project managed the rebuild. Blohm & Voss Repair GmbH in Hamburg were charged with her engineering.
The classic superyacht now has diesel engines, and her contemporary interiors were designed by Rémi Tessier. She has a top speed of 18 knots.
