Shipyard shaping up

Work on a new wave of “superyachts” that will be more that 200 feet in length will likely begin in East Tennessee in February.

The yachts will measure up to 225 feet and will retail in the $40 million to $70 million range, said Henry Luken, part owner of the soon-to-be Christensen Shipyards where the so-called Rolls-Royce of yachts will be built.
