Chinese shipyard Jinlong has launched its flagship superyacht which was commissioned by none other than the martial artist and actor Jackie Chan.
The order for the uber-luxury vessel that measures 46.5 meters was signed in October 2017, with the construction for the superyacht taking place at Jinglong’s Huludao Yacht Industry Park facility.
Dutch Yacht Design & Naval Architecture firm Mulder Design was given the task of designing the exterior as well as the interior of the Jinlong 4601.
Mulder Design has previously penned designs for the likes of Sunrise, Baglietto, Heesen, and Benetti.
The all-aluminium yacht built to RINA classification standards features an aerodynamic yet classic yacht design finished in monochromatic all-white paintwork for the body contrasted with a jet-black hull.
Inside, the superyacht incorporates an open-patio design to deliver swathes of natural light. Sleek wooden cladding covers the walls, while strips of plush hazel carpet and elegant organic-shaped furniture give an upscale ‘80s vibe.
The name ‘JinLong’ is inscribed on the front in striking gold in Chinese as well as English.
The luxury vessel is powered by twin MTU 16V 2000 M84 diesel engines that can propel it to a maximum speed of 21 knots, while it has a maximum range of an impressive 3000 nautical miles when cruising at a speed of 12 knots.
This is not the first luxury yacht owned by the 65-year-old actor; back in 2017, the Chinese superstar took delivery of a 125-foot luxury vessel crafted by Chinese shipyard Ruiying Yachts which is packed to the brim with top of the line amenities.
Jackie Chan is considered one of the highest-paid actors in the world. Thus, in 2015 Forbes listed him second in the Highest Paid actors ranking with $50 million earnings in 2014, second only to Robert Downey Jr.
In 2019, Jackie Chan has earned $58 million, according to Forbes. Except for appearances in movies, he earns extra from a vast array of endorsements, producer credits and even his own line of movie theatres, states Forbes.
We’ll have to wait for more details of his new vessel, including the amenities, are yet to be revealed. The Jinlong 4601 will undergo sea trials before it is handed over to Jackie.
