February 2019 — Artnautica Europe payed a visit to the Turkish shipyard Naval Yachts where the first XPM78 Mobius is being built. The XPM78 (eXtreme Passage Maker) has been designed by Dennis Harjamaa who already has four LRC58 passagemakers actively cruising. Wayne and Christine Hodgins, the owners of Mobius and Dincer and Basir Dinc, the shipyard owners welcomed us warmly and gave us a guided tour of the build and the yard. Wayne and Christine both are very experienced blue water sailors and have been working with Dennis two years before the first sheet of aluminium was cut. They report weekly on their very entertaining website about how Mobius is taking shape.
