Discussion in 'Lurssen Yacht' started by archnav.de, Nov 20, 2003.

Well it looks like a page has turned..... I saw Carinthia VI in Monaco this week end and she has a new name..... She is now called ONE. I guess she was finaly sold. She stays one of my favorite yachts by Lurssen.
Do you have some photos from Monaco?
Nope... I hadn't planned on stoping over in Monaco, so I didn't have my camera with me.
Carinthia VI has been sold a few months ago. If I am not mistaken, she is said to having been sold to a Russian. But I would doubt it is again Mr. Abramovich... ;-)
But then, again, you never know!
You wanted a picture of Caringhia with it's new name, here you go. That was yesterday in St Tropez. I have never seen Carinthia VI been used so much ! I will never forget her when she used to be docked at Port Canto in Cannes, I was a kid and each summer, I was amazed at seeing this yacht.
The previous owner of Carinthia VI which is now Carinthia VII. The owner does not use the vessel that much. In fact, I have heard that when Carinthia VII had one of the many ceremonies - the owner was so busy or lack of respect just drove by the boat in the Ferrari and waved at the guests and crew and continue on the way out of the shipyard (without stopping to say Hi to anyone).
Inside The One (ex-Carinthia VI)
The One (ex-Carinthia VI) graces the cover of Boat International's August 2005 issue with an on-board feature.
The owner of Carinthia 6 is an Italian Business Man. One of my Captains worked for him.
The owner of Carinthia 7 is a German Lady. ( I think he lived in Switzerland ) sometimes
I think there are many people around this owners how want their best,
THEIR MONEY, and I understand and respect that these owners dont want to
get in close contacts.
She has now gone, through a completely new refit, and has 2 military vessel engines (5470 HP each), does a max speed of 28 knots It is to me the most beautiful yacht of all time.
One of, if not the first by Jon Bannenberg, and arguably one of his best!
I'm sorry for resurrecting such an old thread, but The One is available for sale after the horrific fire two years ago.
Perhaps there's still hope for one of the most beautiful yachts ever made.
Would anybody happen to still have the magazine or those interior pictures around from 2005?
The yacht, renamed "THE ONE" with - I suppose - new furniture, was reviewed in the number 230 (August 2005) of a well known british yachting magazine.
(I don't know if I can tell which one)
The magazine should still be in a separate archive (my garage)
At home magazines only from jan 2006, but soon in the process of coming down too)
DBowman already named the magazine as Boat International above. Does anybody have any scans?
This review is also in the 2006 Volume 19 of the book "The Superyachts", page 230-239...
Good news as she is set to be rebuild!
Any news on the rebuild? In the meantime, here's a link to some pics of her predecessor's (Carinthia V) wreck site.
Back in 2018 BI magazine said The One would be delivered sometime in 2020.
A bit off-topic but if money was no object, this would be my dream restoration: Rebuilding her in Luerssen with a design by Bannenberg and Rowell, no matter the costs. "Phoenix" would be an appropriate name imo
I'm right there with you.....I'm hoping we hear some good news about the rebuild soon.
