Adagio was built in New Zealand, with the project managed for the owner by Vitali/Bjorkland Yacht Construction Management, a member of the Diverse Projects Group of Companies.

Vitali/Bjorkland had previously managed the build of a Mark Fitzgerald designed 66ft aluminium passage-maker for a commodore of the New York Yacht Club, and at present is managing another, larger build for an overseas owner.

Vitali/Bjorkland draws selectively on the skills of the considerable bank of talented New Zealand shipwrights, engineers and technicians whose work is widely acknowledged as delivering world-best outcomes.

More than 90,000 hours went into Adagio’s build, with the outcome matching or surpassing the best from Europe. Engineering, management systems, internal fit-out and paintwork reflect the high standards and meticulous attention that were brought to all aspects of this build, driven by the expectations and personal involvement of the commissioning owner.

Visiting Adagio after her launch, Chuck Paine said Adagio could not have been built in the USA to the very high standards achieved in New Zealand.

Adagio is built and certified to CE standards.
