140m Lurssen 'Project Lightning' launched

By Katia Damborsky   5 July 2019

Lurssen’s 140m/427ft motor yacht ‘Project Lightning’ has hit the waters for the first time.

This morning saw Project Lightning hit the water for the first time at Lurssen’s facilities in Bremen. 

The superyacht, which may measure in excess of 130m, will be the 19th largest yacht in the world when she is delivered.

Known only as Project Lightning, the megayacht’s specifications and amenities have been kept a closely guarded secret. 

Pictures tell us she will have a pair of helipads on the foredeck and aft deck, as well as multiple pools and relaxation areas. 

It is not yet known who has created the interior styling of the motor yacht. The exterior design comes courtesy of Espen Oeino. Oeino and his team are responsible for the exteriors of two yachts already delivered this year: Flying Fox and Oceanco's 90m/295ft superyacht DreAMBoat.

Project Lightning is expected to be Lurssen's largest unveiling of this year. It comes shortly after the yard delivered the world's largest charter yacht, the 136m/446ft superyacht 'Flying Fox'.

YachtCharterFleet will keep you updated with more details as the story develops. It is not known whether Project Lightning will be available for private yacht charters.

Pictures tell us she will have a pair of helipads on the foredeck and aft deck.

You can view and compare all Lurssen superyachts for charter.
