Four hundred and sixty-six feet of luxury moved from one floating dock to another a few days ago in the waters of Germany. The code-named Project Redwood, currently in her completion shed, is one of the most anxiously anticipated megayachts currently in build, due to her size and what she pledges to be able to do.
The 456-foot (142-meter) LOA means Project Redwood will be one of the 20 largest private yachts in the world when she sees delivery in 2020. That list, not surprisingly, is dominated by her builder, Lürssen. (On a related subject, ultra-large superyachts are not the only focus for the shipyard. Project Moon Sand is on its order books, too.) Along with her long length comes abundant guest relaxation space. Among the few public facts so far, Project Redwood has 20 staterooms for an owner’s party of 36.
Since finishing work remains to be done, the yacht does not bear the blue hull paint job depicted in artist’s renderings. Regardless, the footage does provide a nice look at the overall six-deck styling, by Nuvolari-Lenard, as well as some of the alfresco features. Note, for example, the views of the large aft-deck pool. This complements a dive center contained inside. Some of the 49-foot-long (15-meter-long) tenders that Project Redwood will tote should support those diving trips. Trips for other purposes will take place in helicopters, which have two helipads onboard for landings and takeoffs.
The design and build teams pledge to reveal more information about tailor-made features as construction continues.
