85m Lürssen yacht Eye (ex Ace) transformed after multi-year rebuild

21 March 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

The 85-metre Lürssen superyacht Eye (ex Ace) has been photographed for the first time in the Port of Gibraltar following a multi-year rebuild that has left her unrecognisable.

The superyacht checked into refit repair yard MB92 in spring 2022, likely following her sale to a new owner. She was renamed Eye in January 2024 and emerged from the yard just last month. 

Details of the rebuild have been kept tightly under wraps, but recent sightings confirm a complete exterior overhaul – including the removal of her trademark superstructure arches and "eye" balconies.

Eye was delivered by the German yard in 2012. The yacht is known to accommodate 10 guests across five cabins, with each cabin decorated with different themes including Art Deco, classical, contemporary nautical and French Provençal. The master cabin sits on the main deck aft and benefits from a private terrace.

Onboard highlights include a cinema and a gym on the main deck, while a library with a fireplace, a piano and a games table can be found on the upper deck. However, the extent of the work done on Eye's interiors is yet to be revealed.

This follows the 91.5-metre Oceanco Tranquility's light refit at MB92 last year.

The three-month stint left her in good condition for the most recent summer charter season and included a number of cosmetic upgrades.
