The float-out of a newly joined hull and superstructure is, of course, a major milestone. And it is certainly an accomplishment that stirs pride in a shipyard and its craftspeople, plus of course the owners. So, judging from the garland-like greenery artfully draped along the bow of Project JAG, which slid down the ways this
Repeat business is among the best business, and it certainly holds true across the entire superyacht spectrum. Just today, an experienced yacht owner who previously owned a 282-footer (86-meter) built by Germany-based Lürssen celebrated the launch of his second yacht by the yard. She bears the code name project Enzo. Peviously carrying the project name
Three years can feel like never-ending years when owners are excited to see their custom yacht come to life. Thanks to time-lapse technology, it takes less than a minute to see one special custom megayacht come together. The making of Lürssen Project 13800 starts with her first stages of construction and ends with her launch.
Three years after experienced yacht owners decided that a seemingly unusual choice to build their custom yacht was actually the right choice, that yacht is quickly approaching delivery. Project 13800, also known as Project Moon Sand, slipped into the water at Lürssen today. The megayacht measures 182 feet (55.5 meters), with a beam of 33’5”
If all testing goes according to plan this summer, fuel cell technology will provide the propulsion for a client of Lürssen. The shipyard is constructing not just its first-ever fuel cell powered superyacht, but also the first private vessel globally to incorporate such a system. With all the talk about sustainability and propulsion, it was
Just as we humans sometimes need to find a new home, yachts do, too. The partially finished hull and superstructure of the secretive megayacht code-named Project Opera departed one floating bay for another in Germany a few days ago. In build at Lürssen, the massive megayacht may measure as large as 479 feet (146 meters).
