The Board of Directors of Vard Holdings Limited (the "Company") wishes to inform that on 12 March 2015, the Company was notified that two affiliates of E.R. Offshore, our customer, have filed for insolvency at a local court in Germany.

The Company’s subsidiary is currently constructing one PSV for each of these companies at its shipyard in Vung Tau, Vietnam. It has received a 10% installment for one of the vessels.

On 13 March 2015 the Group terminated the two shipbuilding contracts. The Group does not expect to repay the prepayment received, and expects to be able to sell the vessels at a price that will cover the expected construction cost less the prepayment received.

The impact of the termination and the proposed resale is expected not to have a material effect on the earnings per share of the Group for the financial year ending 31 December 2015.

The Ultimate Explorer Superyacht: VARD 1-08 KILKEA
29th July 2016

Superyacht culture is evolving. Owners and charterers are seeking new experiences with the emphasis on adventure, exploration and ecology. And Edmiston is working to realise these ambitions with the development of a new breed of superyacht, the explorer.

Currently under co
nstruction, no other yacht epitomises this brave new world of superyacht design and ability like VARD 1-08 KILKEA. This 82m (269ft) yacht is based on a proven deep-water hull with unrivalled seakeeping abilities, capable of exploring uncharted waters and remaining at sea for extended periods with near-zero environmental impact thanks to the latest hybrid propulsion and eco-management systems.

But what makes this project so special is the Bannenberg & Rowell design work, creating a luxurious, sophisticated and highly functional yacht across its vast decks and interior. Explorer must-haves include a helicopter pad, tender and submarine launch pads, a dive centre and its own commercial dock, with plenty of space left over for a large swimming pool. Inside there are plans in place for a 16-cabin, 32-guest deep-exploration layout or a more private 12-cabin version that includes two VIP duplex suits, each with its own observation lounge.

The sheer size and scale of the VARD means it represents a uniquely interesting option for an imaginative and adventurous individual or consortium keen to take full control over their explorer yacht’s design and specification. Ultimately, the 269ft long VARD can offer a near blank canvas aft of its towering bows, with complete freedom on layout and facilities.

Due to the advanced nature of the build, the buyer will also be able to enjoy one of the most capable explorer yachts on the water within two years, whereby a new project of this size would require around five years.
