71m Lürssen motor yacht Skat sold

15 November 2021 • Written by Malcolm MacLean

The iconic 70.71 metre Lürssen motor Skat has been sold with both buyer and seller represented by Stuart Larsen at Fraser.

Built in steel and aluminium by German yard Lurssen to a design by Espen Oeino, she was delivered in 2002 and immediately attracted worldwide attention with her military-style profile, finished in grey. An interior by Marco Zanini accommodates up to 12 guests in seven en suite cabins comprising a master suite, four doubles and two twins. All guest cabins have entertainment centres, Panasonic television screens and are connected by an elevator to all decks while the crew quarters sleep 20 staff.

The dining room has split teak-topped tables for an intimate setting which can also be converted to a single long table with 12 chairs. The main saloon or cinema is aft with a flexible seating arrangement and a large screen television set on an overhead lift. The aft main deck is expansive and open with fixed and loose seating, coffee tables and buffet servers either side. One buffet has a push button bar that opens with bottle storage and the port side also opens with a sink and fridge.

The tender garage stores two 8.5 metre tenders and there are bowsers for gas and diesel refuelling and capacity for two or three wave runners and other water toys. There is also a rack for six bikes. A hydraulic elevator platform moves motorcycles, bikes, supplies and handrails etc. from the garage up to the main deck.

On the bridge deck, there is a wide walkway to the foredeck with port and starboard crew seating. The elevator accesses the corridor heading aft to the guest office which is to starboard with six workstations. The owner’s library is opposite and also has two days beds for relaxation. Further aft is the bridge deck saloon with a stand-up bar separating the lounging area to starboard and casual seating area opposite to port. Natural light also comes from an overhead sky light.

It is on this deck that one starts to appreciate the incredible natural light afforded by the massive windows which extend full width out over the main deck below and are certainly the ‘signature’ of Skat. They extend even further aft to the external dining area which is light, bright and airy and a really generous space with a dining table lying fore and aft for 12 guests, a lounging settee to port and a U-shaped dining and seating area opposite. Her top speed is 17 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 3,500 nautical miles at 15.0kn with power coming from two 2,680hp MTU 16V4000M79 diesel engines.

Skat was asking €49,500,000.
