Jade Yachts Shipbuilding Makes First Steel Hulled Megayacht

Monday, November 27, 2006
Jade Yachts Shipbuilding Corp will deliver the first made-in-Taiwan steel super yacht. With a glossy mirror finish that reflects waves under the sun, Bandido is the first yacht with a steel and aluminum hull ever made by a Taiwanese company. When the 86-ft. vessel sailed out of the shipyard for the first time, the crew could not help cheering the hard-won result of 12 months of hard work that helped turn a new page in Taiwan's shipbuilding history. The super yacht was built for Drettmann GmbH, a Germany-based boat agent, for delivery on Saturday. The Bandido prototype will be showcased at the 38th International Boat Show in Dusseldorf, Germany, from Jan. 20 to Jan. 28. The annual week-long show at the Dusseldorf fairgrounds is the world's largest boat exhibition and attracts hundreds of exhibitors from 55 countries and several hundred thousand visitors.
