An expedition support vessel, hull No. 366, was launched late last month from the Kleven Verft shipyard in Ulsteinvik, Norway.

The 353-foot superyacht, named Ulysses, is owned by New Zealand billionaire Graeme Hart — considered to be New Zealand's richest man — who paid an estimated $50 to $70 million for his toy.

Ulysses is designed for long expeditions in rough waters with a luxury experience, according to a local news report. It comes equipped with a helicopter deck, hangar, swimming pool, hot tub and accommodations for 60 people.

"This is a very exciting project for us. We have been around in the yard and on board the vessel, and I'm very pleased with Kleven and the work that has been done here so far," Hart said.

Kleven is a family-owned company that was founded in 1944.
