Industry news

By Katia Damborsky  26 June 2020

Still officially known as Project Hawaii, YachtCharterFleet can exclusively reveal that Lurssen's 87m (285') superyacht is now known as superyacht AVANTAGE.

Launched earlier this year at Lurssen's Rendsburg facilities, AVANTAGE is the newest addition to the Lurssen fleet. 

The German shipyard is yet to disclose her name or any official details about the superyacht, but her AIS tracking data shows her name has been updated to AVANTAGE. 

She is currently on sea trials in the Baltic Sea, and she is on course for delivery later this year.

Lurssen is notorious for guarding information about their yachts;  however from the data recorded during her sea trials, we can see she reached a top speed of almost 17 knots ( Speed Avg/Max 9.7 kn / 16.9 kn).

The 2,950 GT superyacht features exterior and interior styling from long-time Lurssen collaborators Bannenberg & Rowell. She marks the sixth Lurssen yacht to be penned by Bannenberg & Rowell. 

The British studio has created a sleek and timeless profile with sweeping lines that add a sporty element. Key features include a jacuzzi on the main deck aft that looks over a spacious swim platform below, and a generous sundeck with glass bulwarks. 

Before the yacht's name was revealed, the 'A' emblem on her foredeck was a clue as to her moniker. This space looks like it might function as a helipad. 

Construction on luxury yacht AVANTAGE began in 2017. The motor yacht hit the waters of the Kiel Canal for the first time on January 21. 

It is not yet known whether the superyacht will be available for luxury yacht charters
