Messerschmitt Yachts Partners With Kusch Yachts

Messerschmitt Yachts, a Germany-based builder founded in 2009 to produce steel and aluminum megayachts, is now working with Kusch Yachts for the engineering and build of one of its model lines.

Specifically, Kusch Yachts, also based in Germany, will construct the MTT-Bulwark series for Messerschmitt Yachts. The MTT-Bulwark series features megayachts from 116 to 180 feet, with the first launch expected to be a 140, shown here. Each features an axe bow and is intended as an expedition yacht, capable of meeting ice classification regulations if an owner so desires. As for the MTT-Bulwark 140, top speed should be 16 knots. LOA is 140 feet (42.8 meters). Filippo Rossi Yacht Design is handling interior design. As you’d expect of an expedition yacht, a large tender garage is included, though there’s also a main-deck owner’s suite. Four guest staterooms are below decks. Other quick stats: beam is 29 feet (9 meters), and draft is 8’8” (2.7 meters).

While MTT-Bulwark is just of few different series that Messerschmitt Yachts has in the works, so far there are no plans for Kusch Yachts to build the other model lineups. They are MTT-Arrow, MTT-Atargo, and MTT-Conqueror.
