95m Lürssen superyacht Project Fiji launched and named Madsummer
The yacht was launched on the morning of Tuesday, March 19. It comes after the superyacht was technically launched in October 2017.
Sold in September 2016 by Moran Yacht & Ship, this steel and aluminium yacht features exterior design by Harrison Eidsgaard — a first for the London-based studio. Laura Sessa Design has been handed the interior design brief, which was previously described as "contemporary modern".
Speaking at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show, Rob Moran revealed that Madsummer had been bought by an American client. "He has been a great client of ours for 15 years. We’ve built many boats for him before.”
At the same event, Moran also reported that the superyacht would have a 12 metre superyacht swimming pool, huge spa and big diving areas. Madsummer will also be helicopter-ready, storing a helicopter on the bow, and capable of worldwide cruising. Accommodation is for up to 20 guests split across ten spacious suites.
Other key features include a superyacht beach club with a sea terrace, as well as a skylight in the upper deck aft that guests can walk across and an integrated fireplace.
Other large superyacht projects currently under development at the German yard include the 142 metre Project Redwood, which is scheduled for a 2020 delivery.
