M/Y Voyager
The 90M M/Y Voyager was conceived by Kirilloff & Associates in collaboration with the Owner in the summer of 2014 and exterior styled by Rafael Ochoa of the offices of Furhmann & Ochoa in 2015 after the concept was lengthened. Shortly after revising the concept plans, Kirilloff & Associates was contracted to identify and purchase the host vessel for the conversion into M/Y Voyager. The HOS Trader, a 225 foot offshore supply vessel, was purchased in Louisiana and the effort to convert Trader into Voyager began. Kirilloff & Associates was responsible for the contract and bid plans as well as specifications that included an aft helo deck and spa, a 40 foot mid body extension and a 20 foot stern extension amongst the countless other additions to the host offshore vessel. Kirilloff & Associates also prepared a feasibility report leading to the repowering of the vessel to a pair of new Tier 3 Caterpillar engines. Most of the major steel work was contracted to Leevac Shipyards in Houma, Louisiana and then the vessel was towed to Ft.Lauderdale, Florida for the remainder of the conversion. Delivery is currently scheduled for mid-2018.
