125m GOLDEN ODYSSEY Yacht by Lurssen

March 26, 2015

Returning back to the newly-launched 125m Project Tatiana, supposedly to be named GOLDEN ODYSSEY yacht, we have decided to compare her to other important mega yachts currently in build or cruising the worldwide waters. The 125m GOLDEN ODYSSEY yacht by Lurssen left her shed at Lurssen’s facility in Germany’s Lemwerder last week. Believed to be designed by Martin Francis, with interior design by the late Alberto Pinto, mega yacht GOLDEN ODYSSEY (Project Tatiana, hull no. 13689) is due to be delivered later this year and, once her length has been confirmed, will be placed as the 15th largest yacht in the world. She is the largest vessel to have been launch to date in 2015, followed by the 102m (333’) Feadship superyacht SYMPHONY (hull 808); although we have seen the 110m JUBILEE yacht by Oceanco slip out of her shed, but she has still quite a few months of work ahead, with delivery date in 2017.  Lurssen is also the builder of the current largest yacht in the world – mega yacht AZZAM, measuring amazing 180 metres in length and achieving an astonishing speed of 30 knots.

Following the launch of AZZAM we had the Blohm+Voss launched mega yacht ECLIPSE slipping down to a second place. Details about the accommodation aboard Project Tatiana or Golden Odyssey have not been revealed as yet, however as an example, ECLIPSE sleeps up to 34 guests in 18 staterooms. The 134m mega yacht SERENE by Fincantieri (#12 in the world), offers accommodation to 24 guests in 12 staterooms and the 126m OCTOPUS yacht (also by Lurssen and the 14th largest yacht in the world), can sleep up to 22 guests. Whatever the number of staterooms that Golden Odyssey will have they will surely feature state-of-the-art audio visual entertainment systems, the finest in furnishings as well as super-luxurious amenities.

It is not known yet whether luxury yacht GOLDEN ODYSSEY will join the global superyacht charter fleet or rather mega yacht charter, however her expected ultra-luxurious facilities, numerous decks for socialising and de-luxe staterooms make her undoubtedy very well suited as a luxury charter yacht. Other expected features may include one or more Jacuzzi spas, a large beach club, an elevator providing easy access to all decks, numerous entertainment areas providing space for gatherings and socialising, as well as areas for sunbathing and relaxing outside. Guests will surely have plenty of options for dining, be it inside or al fresco. Whether her Owner decides to keep her private or share her as a charter yacht, GOLDEN ODYSSEY is surely going to be a spectacular mega yacht once delivered.
