Lürssen Superyacht KISMET Completes Sea Trials

German shipyard Lürssen have just announced that the 95.2m/312’4 motor yacht KISMET (‘Project Global’) has successfully completed her sea trials in time for her scheduled delivery date this month.

The sea trials took place over three days between the 26th and 28th August, under which KISMET was sent out under optimal weather conditions and put through extensive functional tests such as  the propulsion plant, pump jet, trials of the thruster, steering system, tests of the cooling, lubrication and fuel-system. Fresh water- treatment units were carried out, as well as the smoke test in the engine room and the blackout tests, all of which achieved the ‘expected excellent results’.

The final finishes of the KISMET build, known as ‘Project Global’ cannot come soon enough as the charter market prepares to welcome one of the most highly anticipated superyachts this year

KISMET’s engines were also fine tunes along with the stabilizers together with the trials for the emergency and zero speed functions with Lürssen giving particular note being to her being an ‘extraordinarily quiet yacht with no vibrations, much to the pleasure of the owner's team’.  In addition, the manoeuvring tests were executed to full satisfaction and she is now back in the yard undergoing final preparations for her delivery this month.
