Exclusive: Lürssen launches 90m expedition yacht NORN

By Steph Loseby   10 February 2023

The latest addition to the Lürssen fleet, the 90m (295ft) superyacht NORN, formerly known as Project 1601, has just launched from the floating dock at the shipyard's Vegesack facilities in Germany. 

Boasting a sleek light grey silhouette, the brand new expedition yacht NORN sports a striking exterior helmed by Norwegian designer and naval architect Espen Oeino whilst her yet-to-be-revealed interiors are the works of Dölker+Voges Design.

Built for a repeat owner, superyacht NORN is a replacement vessel for the 70m (232ft) yacht SKAT, which was delivered in 2002. 

An iconic expedition yacht, SKAT boasted an array of light, bright and airy social spaces and sported a sleek, minimalist interior approach. So, if the new expedition yacht NORN is anything like the former vessel, we can expect her to follow a similar interior design as shown in the images below.

The specifications and amenities for the new Lürssen vessel have been kept a closely guarded secret but as a custom-built 3,600 GT explorer yacht, NORN is guaranteed to have a helipad, closing the bridge between land and sea for guests onboard. 

It is not believed that superyacht NORN will be available to charter upon delivery. 

If you'd like to charter a yacht of a similar calibre, you can view and compare all Lürssen superyachts for charter.
