M/Y Vava II is the 97-metre superyacht commissioned by the Swiss-Italian entrepreneur Ernesto Bertarelli for his British musician wife Kirsty. Built by Devonport Yachts at Plymouth, England, the hull was subcontracted to Appledore Shipbuilders and launched in 2009. When constructed she was claimed to be the largest British-built superyacht. She was the last yacht built by Devonport Yachts following its acquisition by Pendennis Shipyard.
Vava II is powered by four MTU engines, two of 12cyl of 2610 bhp each, and two of 16cyl of 3351 bhp each. They are geared to twin screws and produce a service speed of 18.5 knots.
The Bertarellis’ previous yacht was Vava, a 47-metre motor yacht built by Royal Van Lent/Feadship, Netherlands in 1996.- Wikipedia
