After her inaugural launch in February 2022, followed by successful sea trials in April, the official name of the highly-anticipated 160m (525ft) Lürssen mega yacht has now been unveiled as superyacht BLUE as she gets ready to depart the German yard’s facilities in Bremen and head to the Mediterranean following the handover to her Owners.
The impressive 15,320 GT yacht features exterior and interior styling by the esteemed British studio Terence Disdale Design, while naval architecture comes from Lürssen’s in-house team. Showcasing the yard’s pedigree sleek exterior contours, she sports a crisp white hull and superstructure with extensive glazing across her four upper decks, giving her a sharp and elegant profile.
Efficiency and the desire to be as environmentally friendly as possible were key drivers for the technology on board.
While few details thus far have been revealed, what we do know is that on-board features include a pair of helicopter landing sites, comprising a large helideck at the bow and a smaller helipad aft, as well as an extensive swim platform providing guests with seamless access to the water. This area also adjoins a beach club.
Motor yacht BLUE boasts an array of al fresco relaxing and social living spaces across her decks, courtesy of her vast 22m (74ft) beam, as well as a crowd-pleasing Jacuzzi on her sun deck.
Accommodation is rumoured to be for 48 guests across 24 cabins ensuring a variety of guest party configurations.
The superyacht will be the world’s 4th largest yacht, and 2nd largest in terms of gross tonnage, behind another Lürssen superyacht, DILBAR, which has a volume of 15,917 GT and was delivered back in 2016.
It is not yet known whether M/Y BLUE will become a luxury yacht for charter. If you'd like to charter a yacht of a similar calibre, you can view and compare all Lürssen superyachts for charter. Speak to a yacht charter broker today for more information about making a booking.
