• Rhode Island-based Langan Design Partners has announced that Calliope, the latest motor yacht from the office’s drawing boards, has won the World Super Yacht Award for the best Three- Deck Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yacht.
This award comes as a fitting tribute to the company’s founder, the late Bill Langan, who led the design of this project from its initial conceptual phase in 2006 all the way to her launch in early summer of 2010. Langan passed away in late 2010 following a two-year battle with Leukemia.
Designed for a longstanding client, this motor yacht can take her owner and eight guests to the most remote regions of the planet. Powered by two diesel engines delivering almost 2,000 horsepower each, she has a top speed of 16.5 knots and a range of 1900 nautical miles.
