Lurssen to premiere 95m Madsummer at Monaco Yacht Show
Lurssen’s upcoming handover of the 95m Madsummer follows on from deliveries of two even bigger yachts by the German builder this year.
Lurssen is preparing to deliver Madsummer ‘this summer’ before the 95m megayacht spends her first weeks in the Mediterranean and then makes her world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show from September 25-28.
Harrison Eidsgaard has given the vessel very harmonious proportions and with a beam of 14m, she boasts huge volume, while maintaining sleek, elegant lines.
Peder Eidsgaard said: “Wide exterior staircases together with centreline openings provide seamless connections between the generous exterior decks. A fabulous pool and jacuzzi deck aft is raised three steps and is protected by glass bulwarks that are an integral part of the exterior profile, providing for very clean and uncluttered hull surfaces.”
The interior is designed by Studio Laura Sessa and is described as contemporary modern.
“For this project, I invested inner artistic creativity, due to my long relationship with the owner,” Sessa said. “I playfully created spaces full of customised details and colours from the sea, emanating harmony and elegance. All decks were designed with a specific focus on comfort but also practicality.”
Among the special features are a large beach club and spa area with a sea terrace on the lower deck. On the upper deck aft, there is a walkable skylight and an integrated fireplace for cosy moments in the evening. The bow is laid out for a certified helicopter landing area. The sun deck aft offers a hidden crane in the bulwark to handle an aeroboat.
In early June, the 111m Tis departed the German yard following delivery and headed for Gibraltar.
With exterior and interior by Winch Design, Tis is an elegant yacht and has a long, well-balanced sheer line, despite her considerable size. Given a beam of 16.85m, she boasts extraordinary volumes, accommodating all of the owner’s requirements.
Tis features six decks and offers spacious interior and exterior areas for guests, making her an ideal yacht for entertaining on a grand scale. The sweeping staircases at the transom create an impressive entrance, which sets the tone for the rest of this palatial yacht, with very generous ceiling heights, sophisticated interior decoration and Lurssen’s customary attention to detail.
Kate Maclaren, Partner, Yacht Interiors at Winch Design, said: “Her classical interior takes its inspiration from iconic hotels and residences around the world, featuring timeless décor and a meticulous attention to detail that has become synonymous with Winch Design.”
In early March, the 136m Flying Fox departed the Lurssen facilities following her delivery. Designer Espen Oeino has given her elegant and graceful exterior lines while ensuring, despite her massive volume, that she has striking looks.
“The balance and proportion of the exterior profile allows for generous deck space that offers a range of options for owners and guests, from opulent and sunny entertainment areas to more shaded and intimate spaces,” said Sylke auf dem Graben, Lürssen’s PR and Marketing Manager.
“A special feature is the enormous swimming pool, which runs transversely on the main deck aft. The exterior also boasts two helicopter landing pads, one on the bridge deck and another on the sun deck aft, allowing for multiple helicopter use for owners and guests. Other highlights of her profile include the sea terraces and platforms, which enable guests to access the water easily for water sport activities as well as relaxation.
“In perfect combination with her beautiful exterior, designer Mark Berryman has created an interior that is nothing short of spectacular. Flying Fox has a calm and spacious feel, which has been beautifully crafted with the use of soft neutral tones and tactile finishes.”
With several further yachts currently under contract, the yard continues to market and build yachts ranging in size from 60m and up.
Refit has also become a core business for Lürssen. During the last year, more than a dozen yachts from 50m to well over 100m have used the Lürssen facilities for modifications and maintenance works, eight of them alone in their Hamburg based Blohm+Voss shipyard. Among them are some of the world’s most beautiful yachts such as Mayan Queen, Octopus and Solandge.
Lurssen has earned an international reputation as the specialist in exclusive, bespoke yachts of outstanding engineering mastery. The privately-run company was founded in 1875 and remains solely in the hands of the fourth generation of the Lurssen family. With a workforce of 2,700, Lürssen maintains eight state-of-the-art facilities in northern Germany and its main headquarters are in Bremen.
