The 95m/312ft superyacht KISMET has been causing quite a stir after turning up in London over the weekend and for the first time since her launch we are now able to see the beautiful silver Jaguar attached to her bow.
Positioned with one paw in the air and the other resting on an American football helmet, the majestic cat is a striking addition to the spectacular Espen Oeino designed motor yacht. According to the MailOnline, KISMET is widely reported to be an upgrade to Fulham FC owner Shahid Khan’s previous 223ft Lürssen superyacht also named KISMET and now known as GLOBAL. Khan also owns NFL team the Jacksonville Jaguars so this could explain the connection to the Jaguar that now graces the 2014-launched superyachts bowsprit.
Traditionally, bowsprits are seen on sailing yachts to which the stays of the foremast are fastened. Recently, bowsprits are increasingly seen on motor yachts, used to add extra LOA as well as create an extension of the design. The 90m/295 luxury charter yacht ‘Phoenix 2’, also built by Lürssen is another good example of this, featuring a stunning silver Phoenix on her bowsprit which appears to be about to take flight.
Superyacht KISMET is soon to embark on her first ever Caribbean yacht charter season with weekly rates starting from €1,200,000 per week plus expenses. Her luxurious Reymond Langton designed interior offers accommodation for 12 guests in six staterooms and an extensive selection of amenities can be found on board to include a dedicated health spa, helipad, gymnasium, cinema, swimming pool.
