The construction of Illusion Plus started back in 2010 with Pride Mega Yachts undergoing some significant changes in its structure and operations management (Pride Mega Yachts was previously known as CIMC Raffles Yacht Ltd.). After a few updates on the progress, the yacht was scheduled for delivery last year. However, she is now due for completion by the end of 2018.
