Her five decks destined for the pursuit of rest and relaxation went through three days of tests on the Baltic Sea this month. The Project Miza yacht sea trials concluded positively according to Nobiskrug and the owners’ team, which anticipate delivery early next year.
The 229’7” (70-meter) project, a.k.a. Project 795, went through her engines’ and systems’ shakedown a few years after the keel laying. That took place in 2019. (Construction delays resulted from Covid disruptions and Nobiskrug filing for bankruptcy protection in early 2021, the latter resolved under different ownership.) An entirely custom yacht, Project Miza has styling and interior design by the UK-based studio Winch Design. Yacht enthusiasts may be able to pick her out on the horizon when she begins cruising with her owners due to three square windows forward on the main deck. An eyebrow-like arch frames them, too.
Among the amenities that the owners wanted to enjoy with their guests, naturally you’ll find a beach club. Up top, a pool is forward on the sundeck. It has contra-flow currents so that swimmers can get some exercise. Amid Project Miza’s other decks are a sizable main saloon, a full-beam sky lounge, and a spa. Dining areas, meanwhile, are both inside and alfresco on a few decks.
Notably, too, Project Miza has azimuthing thrusters as part of her propulsion package. They drop down and have station-keeping capabilities. This therefore means that the megayacht can “anchor” in waters where real anchoring gear isn’t permitted, such as where protected reefs or other sea life live. This last detail comes from Scott Wightman of Motor Yacht Build. He’s been serving as the owners’ representative and construction supervisor since the contract signing took place.
Although Nobiskrug has not revealed specifics on performance, the yacht has ocean-crossing capabilities.
