Storylines Partners with Brodosplit Shipyard for MV Narrative Build

Posted by B.C. Hunter on Apr 13, 2021 7:15:30 PM

In a mutually collaborative effort, the parties intend to build Storylines' first residential ship in Split, Croatia.

Storylines confirmed an agreement with Brodosplit and stated that engineering has commenced with the first steel cutting expected next year.

“The ship building industry was hit particularly hard by the Covid-19 pandemic and industry-wide delays and cancellations have been inevitable,” said Storylines founder and co-CEO Alister Punton. “However, there has been a silver lining with having had a few extra months to adapt to changing Covid-related regulations and to include some additional features that our residents requested such as additional work spaces,”  he continued.
The pandemic has also resulted in a high demand in recent months of remote workers and families now having the flexibility to reinvent the way they work, live and learn. 
Shannon Lee, Storylines founder and co-CEO added, “Working with Brodosplit helps us achieve our founding principles and sustainability goals as their area of expertise includes LNG engine manufacturing. We’re thrilled to finally be able to release the shipyard agreement for the construction of our new LNG powered ship and we would like to thank our residents for their support to get to this very exciting point,” he continued.

The ship features fully furnished residences ranging from 237 sq. ft. to 2411 sq. ft., priced from $300,000 to $8 million for a premium two-level penthouse suite. Owners and invited guests will have the opportunity to live a sustainable life of luxury and freedom while at sea. Owners have the option to make their unit available through the Storylines rental program.

Positioned as the greenest ship in the market, Storylines MV Narrative utilizes LNG fuel along with innovative reusable energy technologies and energy storage and recovery systems. The ship also includes a waterfront marina, microbrewery, art studio, hydroponic gardens, and more.
