“It’s always an exciting milestone in the build process when launch marks the final few months of work. We’ve tested the Heesen joinery team with plenty of curves and details and they have done a beautiful job. We are greatly looking forward to seeing her finished," comments Dickie Bannenberg.Project Pollux yacht interior designPhoto: Karel Ham
