  1. Lurssen launches 110-meter Project "Darius"

    In the early afternoon of April 27, 2009, Lurssen Shipyards in Bremen Germany launched the second 110-meter yacht from their facility. The first yacht of similar length was "Dilbar" and she was launched and delivered in 2008. The second yacht was launched yesterday under the Project name "Darius".

    Darius in general conception holds the design of her sister, Dilbar. She has a designed penned by Tim Heywood and an interior by Glenn Pushelberg. Darius features a grey hull and white supersturcture. Various hatches detail the hull for relaxation platforms and tender garages. Pods located outside of what could be the owner's deck adds yet more detail.

    When this yacht is delivered in the Summer of 2009, she will join her Dilbar on the high seas. Darius is one of three large yachts that Lurssen will launch in 2009. "Arkely" will launch in June 2009. She is an Espen Oeino designed yacht along the lines of "Linda Lou" and she goes under the project name "Katie Sue".

    The other yacht is Project "Scout" and she is scheduled to launch later in the year. Scout is a larger version to the Lurssen built "Polar Star". Darius was floated out from Lurssen's newly acquired floating dock. She is presently at the outfitting pier at Lurssen preparing for trials and final delivery.
