Germany-based shipyard Lürssen, a world-renowned builder of large luxury yachts, will be attending this month’s London Yacht, Jet & Prestige Car Show, running in the British Capital from April 8 to 10. For five generations now and since 1875, Lürssen has been cultivating the most refined skills and advanced technologies to create truly outstanding vessels, including the 104m mega yacht Quantum Blue, delivered last year.
Their connection to shipbuilding is as deep-rooted and individual as only family bonds can be, the commitment is deep, the approach individual. When the company founder Friedrich Lürssen said, “Leading in quality and performance, that should be my company’s reputation,” he was expressing the values Lürssen continues to uphold to this day.
Lürssen is more than a shipbuilding company – Lürssen is a shipbuilding family.
In the last quarter of 2014 Lürssen delivered three yachts:
66 m Ester III – Under clear directions from the Owner, Espen Oeino has given superyacht Ester III a very masculine appearance with strong character. With a length of 66 m and a beam of 11.90 m she accommodates all of the owner’s requirements whilst still maintaining a very elegant appearance.
Her interior is designed by Reymond Langton and the elaborate design, the joinery work as well as the loose pieces of furniture made by Silver Lining, will stun those who will have the privilege to come aboard. She is currently cruising in the Caribbean and will have her debut in the Mediterranean at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
95 m Kismet – She is built for a very experienced repeat client, who up-graded from his former 68 m Lürssen yacht. Espen Oeino has given mega yacht Kismet very harmonious lines. Her external living spaces are numerous and generous and have been laid out for both charter and private use in mind. Interior designer Pascale Reymond is responsible for Kismet’s luxurious interior which has very dramatic features. Kismet has everything any owner would aspire to.
Luxury motor yacht Kismet will be an exciting addition to the global megayacht charter fleet. She represents the very latest in high-end luxury cruising. With her experienced crew she will without doubt provide the ultimate experience to remember. She is currently cruising her first season in the Caribbean before she can be expected in Mediterranean waters in the summer.
104 m Quantum Blue – Tim Heywood has given motor yacht Quantum Blue a most elegant and graceful exterior design and has ensured that despite her massive volume she maintains her elegant looks. Her interior design was created at the Alberto Pinto Design office and is in one word: spectacular. A unique mix of rare and striking materials will give Quantum Blue an exceptional look and feel as well as a feeling of luxury. Quantum Blue is a PYC certified yacht and is now preparing herself for her maiden cruise in the spring to the Mediterranean.
This summer Lürssen will deliver a further two custom-built yachts, one very different from the other:
The first is mega yacht project Orchid – a 90 m yacht with a Reymond Langton exterior and interior design. The second is superyacht project Tatiana – a 123 m yacht with an exterior design by Martin Francis with Newman Stacey Design. It is Mr. Francis’ first collaboration with Lürssen and as can be expected, Tatiana will have some great design features. The interior is designed by the Alberto Pinto Design office.
With several further yachts currently under contract, the shipyard continues to market and build yachts ranging in size from 60 m up to well over 150 m.
