  1. 55-meter Project 13800 Launches At Lurssen
    One of the smallest superyachts Lurssen built since 1995 has been launched in Germany. The 55-meter Project 13800 also known as Project 'Moon Sand' is a 55-meter superyacht. For some builders this is a big vessel, for Lurssen it is just about the smallest they build, at least in 25 years. The design is by Bannenberg & Rowell Below we get a glimpse of this vessel in a photo taken by Klaus Jordan/Lurssen. "We are excited to see 13800 emerge from her shed. The initial concept was influenced by our studies based on the classic yacht "Carinthia VI", designed by Bannenberg Snr, and built by L├╝rssen in 1973", says Dickie Bannenberg.
  2. For Lurssen this project is perhaps the start of a renewed thrust in targeting the 55-75-meter segment. Lurssen typically builds above 75-meters regularly and many see it as odd the company took a 55-meter contract. As Peter Lurssen suggested in an interview, Lurssen can build even on the smaller end if a client wants that but would it be profitable for the company? He even suggested the level of difficulty and complexity of fitting all the advanced systems in Project 13800. Delivery of Project 13800 is expected for Summer, 2021.
