MY Kay (ex Vladimir Chivilikhin or Wladimir Sziwilichin) - Stocznia Gdynia S.A. / conversion: Arista Marine Group - 122,00 m - 1990 / 2012
2012 might see a surprising entry in the top 20 of the largest motor yachts. A
spectacular 122 meter conversion project is under construction in Split,
Croatia: Built by the Gdynia Shipyard in Poland as a personnel carrier for the
Russian offshore industry, VLADIMIR CHIVILIKHIN was delivered in 1990 and was in
service until 1998. The 4,350 HP vessel has a gross tonnage of 4,575 tons.
Renamed KAY, the ship was brought to Asia for a conversion at the Keppel
Shipyard in Singapore, to a design by Robert McFarlane. This was however
cancelled, and in 2007 KAY was brought to Vranjic near Split where she was laid
up for more than three years. Subsequently, in March 2011 she was dry-docked at
the Brodotrogir shipyard in Trogir and is now moored in the North Port of Split
where the conversion work is being carried out by the Arista Marine Group under
the project name AMG 120. Among the yacht’s features will be a pool and a
helipad situated on the sun deck.
