Most Noted Superyacht Launches of 2016 It is coming on to the end of the year and it is also the time to take a look back at some of the most memorable superyacht launches of 2016. There were quite a few stand out launches whether in regards to sheer size, styling or just originality. The majority of the large launches came from the usual top European yards in Germany, The Netherlands and Italy. 1. Lurssen launched the 123-meter Project 'Jupiter' and in usual fashion due to confidentiality not a lot was known about this build. Other than being large, with a length of just over 400-feet, Project Jupiter has a very stylish exterior design by H2 Yacht Design and interior by March & White. Even though she was launched towards the end of October, there is still no indication of what her final name will be but she is due to be delivered in Spring of 2017.
