LCG was the catalyst for the creation of this new Conrad flagship.

But it was back in Gdansk, Poland, that Radek happened to witness VIATORIS emerging from the Conrad shed and it clicked. Radek called his client and suggested his search was over. They inspected VIATORIS together at the 2018 Cannes Yachting Festival and the deal was sealed at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2019.
