Burgess mandated to manage 88.5m ILLUSION PLUS, latest launch from Pride Megayachts (China)

Burgess is delighted to be appointed as Yacht Manager and Crew Manager  for Pride Megayachts’ 88.5m ILLUSION PLUS. This striking yacht was recently launched at the shipyard’s Yantai facility in China and represents the most exciting and compelling large yacht ever built in China.

ILLUSION PLUS is a remarkable yacht and boasts an impressive array of features. With an interior volume of 3,642 Gross Tonnes spread across six decks she features huge interior spaces for living and entertaining including six cabins accommodating 12 guests with a 80 square metre master suite. She also offers a dedicated spa, beauty salon, gymnasium, two jacuzzi pools and a touch-and-go helipad.

Her performance is equally impressive with two diesel electric Rolls Royce engines powering her up to 17 knots and achieving a range of 5,000 NM at cruising speed of 15 knots.

She was built with the input of several world class experts including naval architects Azure, exterior designers Rainsford Saunders Design and interior designer Sinot.

ILLUSION PLUS is for sale with an asking price of USD 145,000,000.
