Lürssen superyacht Blind Date sold
by Malcolm MacLean
Blind Date is a combination of a pedigree European build and American interior design. Originally built in Germany by Lurssen to Bureau Veritas class in 1995 for a European owner, she was superbly maintained and was even stored ashore under cover during the winter months. Under new American ownership she was refitted in 2005. The interior of the yacht was completely rebuilt under the careful eye of designer Patrick Knowles and transformed to create the cool and calm ambiance which still makes her rather special today.
