    Yeah but the final result and the rendering of Project Thor looks kind of different. Makes me wonder if she was resold during construction...changes were definitely made on the final product. Here is the render of Project Thor looking more like a successor to "Northern Star" type of vibe but "Aurora" is her name. Funny enough it is painted similarly as the older Lurssen (ex. 'Phoenix' ) now Aurora that is now. Any links?

    Probably, the older Aurora was sold and it was renamed 'Avanti'.

    There has been something of a trend for Lurrsen boats to not look very much like their renders.

    There are some more photos of her online. I do like a lot of the retro features she has. I do think she came out better than the initial rendering.

    She is actually more classic looking that I thought...all the rounded windows really adds to a traditional look which looks good just looks hard to believe Lurssen built this...given the modern designs they brought to reality over the years. But Aurora looks nice!

    Lurssen is about to launch another 100m+ yacht. Looks like Project Thunder.

    The rumor is spreading that the future owner of this project still hasn't paid..

    So she could end up straight on the market then?

    There have been several big builds recently that have gone straight on the market, orders made when certain key commodity markets and economies were doing much better.

    The only problem once these yachts over 90m go on the market is that the brokers and builders rarely releases GAs and interior photos. She looks like she will be a really nice yacht.

    I saw a stern quarter shot and it looks like she will also have a helicopter hanger up towards her mast!

    According to a famous yachting magazine, Project Thunder will have a traditional interior and will cruise mostly in Asian waters.
