11 October 2022 • Written by Holly Overton

The 97.2 metre Lürssen superyacht Carinthia VII has been spotted checking into the Blohm+Voss shipyard in Hamburg after a change in ownership last month. 

According to BOAT Pro's Global Fleet Tracker, she departed Monaco on September 26 shortly after the announcement of her sale and was pictured travelling up the River Elbe on October 10. She was sold by Antoine Larricq and Stuart Larsen at Fraser and Ralph de Joode at RYacht.

Carinthia VII is regarded as one of Lürssen's most memorable launches and one of designer Tim Heywood’s finest creations. Built entirely in steel, she was delivered in 2002 as the seventh in a series of superyachts named Carinthia and sports a deep blue hull paint named 'Carinthia Blue'. A 3,643 GT interior accommodates 14 guests in eight staterooms with crew quarters for a team of 40 split across two decks.

It is not yet known how long she will spend at Blohm+Voss and what work she is expected to undertake.

She recently completed her 20-year class survey in May 2022 after a five-month maintenance period at Nautech.

Lürssen acquired Blohm+Voss in 2016 and is the refit arm of Carinthia VII's home shipyard, known for large-scale refit and maintenance work.
