This past weekend, New Zealanders Robyn and Graeme Hart were in Ulsteinvik, Norway to witness the launch of their 107 meter-long yacht at Kleven Verft shipyard. Up until they showed up however, nobody at the shipyard knew whose yacht they were building.
Designed by Marin Teknikk, the MT5006 Expedition Support Vessel will be named Ulysses upon delivery in 2015 and is designed for longer expeditions in rough waters worldwide.

According to Forbes, Hart has a net worth of around USD $7 billion and may also be New Zealand’s wealthiest citizen.
