  1. 120-meter+ Project 'Thunder' Emerges At Lurssen
    German custom superyacht manufacturer Lurssen launched another large superyacht this morning at their facilities. This time it is the 120-meter (plus) superyacht known under the build name; Project 'Thunder'. Her exact length is not known but Lurssen commented that the craft is above 120-meters. Many sites that she may well be in the region of 135-meters but Lurssen has yet to confirm that. Another facet that has been swirling around is that she was designed by Espen Oeino and the yard has confirmed that in their press release.
  2. If you can cast your minds back to the end of 2015, you will remember this yacht when it was in its raw state and transferred to the floating dry dock. She has been launched 24 months after her keel was laid and now expected to be fully delivered sometime in 2018. The traditionally styled interior will be installed in the coming months and the yacht will undergo extensive sea trials thereafter as is the norm. One of the striking features of the design is an expansive incorporation of glass that spans three decks in the midships area. We are unsure whether it is an atrium or if there are separate rooms on each level to take advantage of the views. Other features appear to include a dedicated main helipad on the aft upper deck with a hangar to house the helicopter as can be seen in the below photo by social media user DrDuu. Lurssen also suggests that this yacht once delivered, is expected to frequent Asian waters.
