115m Lürssen superyacht Pelorus for sale

15 February 2023 • Written by Holly Overton

The 115-metre Lürssen superyacht Pelorus is now for sale with Dominic Millman at Burgess.

Pelorus is a 5,403-gross-tonne motor yacht delivered in 2003 with three of the most distinguished names in yachting behind her design and build: Lürssen, Tim Heywood and Terence Disdale. DNV classed, she was the 11th largest yacht in the world and the flagship of the Lürssen fleet when she first hit the water. 

Pelorus is asking €185,000,000.

Her steel hull is based on the same lines as Carinthia VII, with a high forebody and reverse sheer sweeping down towards the stern, but Pelorus features an additional line that curves down towards the bow inspired by the "armour belt" on the HMS Belfast moored on the river Thames.

Terence Disdale created a relaxed but sophisticated interior using natural materials where possible for a beach club feel throughout the vessel. Accommodation is for 24 guests (with dispensation for a total of 36 guests) in 12 ensuite cabins, including a master suite that sits on the owner's deck. The space encompasses a private owner's study with a U-shaped desk and panoramic ocean views aft, and a round table with a lazy susan that seats eight.

The remaining accommodation is comprised of a VIP cabin, seven guest cabins (one of which is equipped with a fold-down terrace) and an additional three guest cabins. Guests are catered to by a crew of 46 with three additional staff cabins and a separate staff lounge. All guest areas and crew cabins are fitted with flatscreen televisions.

There are four pools on board Pelorus, the largest of which can be found on the sun deck next to a Jacuzzi flanked by sunpads. Elsewhere, owners can enjoy a steam room and plunge pool thanks to an onboard wellness centre.

Another highlight is the dedicated cinema room with sink-in sofas, Dolby Atmos sound and more than 120 4k films available at the touch of a button. 

Pelorus carries seven tenders including an 11.2-metre limo and 8.5-metre sports tender (both by Vikal), a ten-metre X-tender rib, two Pascoe ribs including a SOLAS rib, a nine-metre Hinckley and a Zodiac. Her toy box is just as extensive with stowage for up to six jet skis and a full dive set-up.

Power comes from a pair of Wartsila Model 12V26 engines delivering a maxiumum speed of 20 knots and a range of 6,000 nautical miles at 16 knots. A quartet of Quantum zero speed stabilisers – two aft and two forward – offer the ultimate guest comfort at anchor and underway.

Pelorus is currently in Germany with an asking price of €185,000,000.
