The still-secretive Project Lightning, one of the largest megayachts in build in Germany at present, showed off her stacked, sculpted lines during a set of recent sea trials. Simultaneously, she revealed a little more about her overall design.
Project Lightning peeked out at the shipyard about a month ago. Since that shipyard, Lürssen, is held to a confidentiality agreement, it did not, and still cannot, comment. Therefore, the exact length remains unknown. The best guesstimate from yacht spotters is that the megayacht measures at least 426 feet (130 meters). Perhaps the massive megayacht is even as large as 460 feet (about 140 meters). In addition, the identities of the exterior designer and interior designer remain a secret.
However, her styling details do hint at some potential facts about how her owner plans to use her. For instance, Project Lightning has long, enclosed decks. While two healthy-size helipads occupy deck acreage, much smaller full-sun alfresco relaxation areas seem to be onboard. Therefore, the owner and guests may not plan to lounge beneath the rays much.
This isn’t to say, of course, that the yacht lacks outside entertainment spots. In fact, Project Lighting has private pools on her upper decks.
Finally, given her six decks from the waterline up, the yacht surely offers plenty of enjoyable areas inside.
