Langan Design Partners motoryacht wins award

Newport, R.I.-based Langan Design Partners announced that Calliope, its latest motoryacht, won the World Super Yacht Award for the best Three-Deck Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yacht.

“This award comes as a fitting tribute to the company’s founder, the late Bill Langan of Jamestown, R.I., who led the design of this project from its initial conceptual phase in 2006 all the way to her launch in early summer of 2010,” the company said in a statement. “Bill passed away in late 2010 following a two-year battle with leukemia.”

Designed for a longstanding client, the motoryacht can take its owner and eight guests to the most remote regions. Powered by two diesel engines delivering almost 2,000 horsepower each, the boat has a top speed of 16.5 knots and a range of 1,900 nautical miles.

The interior was designed by the Rhoades Young office of Lymington, England. The interior decoration and soft goods are by Candace Langan Design — also based in Newport — whose principal, Candy Langan, is Bill’s wife.

Calliope was built at the Holland Jachtbouw shipyard in the Netherlands.
