    It seems that the 85-meter secret project Niki might have been launched at the Rendsburg yard. Are there any confirmations of this? She a pretty nice looking vessel, contemporary design, nothing over-the-top flashy but nice. Just as a reminder, a rendering is below to see.

    Yes her delivery is scedulded for January. Why does it seem that Niki has been launched?
    I have heard nothing..


    Edit: Ok I saw it ,too. But still no pictures or?
    If the info is correct I guess she is out of the shed but still on land.

    Could you have taken photos?

    I think Niki would have looked much more stylish with a sloped mast instead of a vertical one.

    Hey, unfortunatly not.
    I don't live in Rendsburg or Schacht-Audorf (that is exactly where Lürssen Rendsburg is).

    I can Pm you a link with a picture of Niki after she has been launched.
    Lürssen had not installed the mast yet, so hope that it comes out differently;)

    What I see on that pic honestly looks more like "Bellissimo". The actual shell of the yacht is not matching back with the renderings on Niki or Nicki.

    Yes their hulls are really similar !
    But compare them and you will see the differences.

    You are right she looks pretty different compared with the rendering,
    I think it seems that she will have a terrace on the upperdeck like Kismet...

    This is "Bellissimo" which is very similar to her... but Bellissimo was launched with her mast back in I think June and she already had the angular windows in the forward end of the hull. So definitely Nicki/Niki is the one launched the other day even though she looks slightly altered to the original renderings. It also seems that Bellissimo will be launched this year and Nicki pushed back to 2013.

    The design to Niki has changed. There are renderings out there as to what she will look like. A very good design in my opinion.

    When I look at the current rendering I guess she will be the succesor of 'Kismet' or?

    I wouldn't go so far as to guess that yet. We will wait and see.

    Yeah soo right! I am shure she will be one of my Highlights in 2013 with all these plenty outdoor spaces and her astonishing design. Regarding the hull colour... I am unshure is it a red-black?! There is another photo of her in their brochure, just go again on the same link above.

    Ever since seeing her in the ***** brochures, I thought she was going to be good looking but also knew that the entire silver color was gonna go. She looks good though and I'm a fan of the pool location.

    I have been pondering this for a while. I thought the 80+/- meter range of yachts that Lurssen has been been producing were fully custom but are they more like Oceanco's Y7XX series? A lot of them seem to have similar hulls and also come from the same build management team. Ace, Phoenix2, TV, and Valerie all have 14 meter width hulls that are pretty similar in design and Niki and Global seem to have similar hulls to these yachts as per the renderings. Anyone with some insight?

    I thought exactly the same, Niki and Bellisimo have the same engines if I remember correctly... your comparison with OceAnco's Y700 line is good even if I think that their yachts are much more similiar as Lürssen's.

    Oceanco is definitely more similar but all of Lurssen's hull have similar resemblances. Lurssen probably pushes it since the project should have a lower cost and quicker delivery time with less issues.

    April isn't here yet so you can't see her :p It's an eager wait for most Lurssen projects, it's says something about them!
