The complete hull and superstructure of a new Lürssen motor yacht touched the water for the first time at the end of last week, as she was moved to her final build shed for completion in Rendsburg, Germany.
Measuring in at 98m in length, the yacht emerged from her shed on Friday morning. Brokers Moran Yacht & Ship sold the project, which has been referred to as Project Maui and is due for completion in 2019.
Rob Moran, president of Moran Yacht & Ship said at Monaco Yacht Show, “It’s for an American client, who has been a great client of ours for 15 years. We’ve built many boats for him before.”
According to Moran, Maui will accommodate 20 guests in 10 staterooms. Designed for world cruising, she has been fitted with a 12m swimming pool and large diving area, as well as what Moran refers to as a ‘huge spa’. Her bow area will be able to store a helicopter below deck.
Her interior and exterior designer are as yet undisclosed.
The 98m is the third Lürssen commissioned by Moran Yacht & Ship, which has also assisted in the build of 95.2m M/Y Kismet delivered in 2014, and 139m Project Redwood, which is currently in build with an expected delivery date of 2019.
