Lürssen reveals first details of 95m Project Fiji
by Chris Jefferies
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. What's more, Laura Sessa Design will create an interior décor that is described as "contemporary modern".
Speaking at last year's Monaco Yacht Show, Rob Moran revealed: “It’s for an American client who has been a great client of ours for 15 years. We’ve built many boats for him before.”
Moran also reported that the superyacht has a 12 metre superyacht swimming pool, a huge spa and big diving areas. It will 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.
In its announcement, Lürssen reveals that the contract was signed in 2015 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and adds that the beam of Project Fiji is 14 metres. 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.
The first images show that her steel hull supports a curvaceous aluminium superstructure. What's more, cut-out sections in her bow and stern hint at extensive tender and water toy storage capacity.
Other large superyacht projects currently under development at the German yard include the 135 metre Project Thunder, which is due for completion next year, and the 139 metre Project Redwood — scheduled for a 2019 delivery.
