Polish shipyard Conrad has christened Extra Timethe second Conrad C144S, in a ceremony in the heart of Gdansk, close to the shipyard’s headquarters. The owner and his family were present at the event, with the owner’s daughter smashing the customary champagne and the owner giving a short speech. 

Extra Time is the family’s first venture into yachting, explained the owner. “When I see the result, it is so beyond expectations. I’m so excited for my family to enjoy it. We’ve been so lucky to have Conrad and the boat is a piece of art for me,” he said. 

The yacht, which was launched in March, has now been handed over to her owners and is expected to leave Gdansk on her maiden voyage in the coming weeks.

Sold by Alex G Clarke of Denison Yachting and Jim Evans of SuperYachtsMonaco in 2021, the yacht features design by Reymond Langton and naval architecture by Dutch firm Diana Yacht Design. The yacht’s interior design is by M2 Atelier and closely mirrors the style of hull one, Acewith a clean, unfussy style free of clutter and plenty of soft grey and neutral tones. 

The yacht has a five-cabin configuration with a main deck owner’s suite that is accessed via a study-cum-lounge space that is also fitted with an electric piano. Other personal touches include a contemporary King Kong sculpture adjoining the main saloon.

As a model, the C144S won Best New Series at the BOAT International Design & Innovation Awards 2024; while Ace also cinched two separate awards, including Best Interior Design.

“Every launch and christening of a yacht at the Conrad Shipyard is a celebration for our entire team, who work with great passion and dedication for our collective success. The name Extra Time represents the great time spent on board with family and friends. We sincerely hope that the owners will enjoy Extra Time on their yacht,” said Mikołaj Król, CEO at Conrad Shipyard.

Power comes from a pair of Caterpillar engines for a top speed of 14 knots. When pared back to 10 knots, the yacht will boast a transatlantic range of 5,100 nautical miles. Extra Time is available for private yacht charters with Cecil Wright.
