If you want to know why the newly launched Lürssen yacht Jag bears the name she does, you need only take a good look at her bowsprit (below). A gleaming sculpture of a leaping jaguar nestles against the structure of this 400-footer (122-meter).
Jag, a.k.a. Project Jag during her construction the past few years, bears equally powerful styling by Nuvolari-Lenard. Her bow, for instance, is not just elongated, but arguably exaggerated—gracefully so. It has so much flair that it’s reminiscent of classic sailing yachts. Additionally, the sculptured nature of her navigation mast stands out. The contrasting paint schemes further make its curves and strong linear shapes stand out.
Although many specifics remain confidential about the interior design, the UK-based studio Reymond Langton Design collaborated with the owner. Eleven staterooms are aboard, accommodating a total of 20 passengers. Forty crewmembers, meanwhile, have cabins as well amid the 58-foot (17.8-meter) beam. Judging from the owner and the studio previously working together, the décor should be quite lavish.
In fact, also judging from previous information from Lürssen and the gleaming jaguar, the yacht Jag will see delivery to Shad Khan. Khan is both a repeat customer of the shipyard and the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team. Lürssen already revealed, for example, that the owner (without naming him or her) is a three-time client. It further mentioned that this same client was stepping up from a 315-foot (96-meter) megayacht. Kismet, with the coolest-looking bowsprit (a jaguar, naturally), matches this description. Then, during the technical launch in June 2021, American flags prominently adorned the yacht’s bow.
