Dutch yacht design and naval architecture company Jinlong has shared news on the launch of a 46.48-metre flagship superyacht of Chinese builder Jinlong. The vessel was designed for her owner; the martial arts movie star and producer Jackie Chan, who was also present at the ceremony.
The order on the new 46.5-metre vessel was signed in October 2017; with production taking place at Jinglong’s Huludao Yacht Industry Park facility. Mulder design was responsible for both exteriors and interiors of the yacht, as well as her naval architecture.
The full-aluminium vessel was built to RINA classification standards. Propelled by twin MTU 16V 2000 engines. The yacht will demonstrate a top speed of 21 knots and is designed to cruise at 19 knots. At a 12-knot speed though, she will be able to cover an impressive range of 3,000 nautical miles.
Jackie Chan is considered one of the highest-payed actors in the world. Thus, in 2015 Forbes listed him second in the Highest Paid Actors ranking with $50 million earnings in 2014, seconding 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.
Meanwhile, in 2017, Jackie Chan took delivery of a 38.1-metre yacht by Chinese builder Ruiying.
