Lürssen's 122m superyacht Kismet (ex Project Jag) on sea trials

15 April 2024 • Written by Katia Damborsky

The 122-metre Lürssen superyacht Kismet (formerly Project Jag) has embarked on sea trials, with BOATPro registering her travels off the coast of Kiel, Germany. 

The yet-to-be-delivered yacht was commissioned by a repeat Lürssen client Shahid Khan, who previously owned the 95.2-metre Lürssen yacht Whisper (formerly Kismet). His new yacht reunites him with Reymond Langton Design for the interior, but the exteriors on the new build have been helmed by Nuvolari Lenard.

The news of her sea trials follows the reveal of the superyacht's computer-rendered interiors by her central agency for charter, Cecil Wright. Kismet charters for €3,000,000 per week plus expenses.

Interiors have been described as a "beautiful, bespoke homage to the owner’s lifestyle" by the yard. The renderings show a dramatic theme, with an elaborate staircase that appears to have the same video walls as the original Kismet.  Fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling glass and intricate paint and marble detailing also feature throughout. 

Speaking about her entrance on the charter market, Chris Cecil-Wright said: “Having sold the previous Kismet in September last year, we are delighted to be able to continue our relationship with her owner as the central agent for charter for his stunning new vessel.”

The charter yacht features accommodation for 12 guests in up to nine cabins. The crew quarters, meanwhile, will accommodate a staff of 40. Other key details include a beam of 17.8 metres, creating "extraordinary volumes" and "sleek and elegant lines", according to the yard.

Other standout features include a helipad, beauty salon, spa, sauna, swimming pool, indoor and outdoor cinema, dance floor, gym and elevator. There will also be ample room for a selection of tenders and toys including a sailing dinghy, Sea Bobs, sea scooters, windsurfers and a submarine.

Sold by Moran Yacht & Ship in 2019, Kismet is one of the largest superyachts under construction in the world

According to BOATPro, Lürssen has 12 yachts currently in build or on order. This includes the 107-metre explorer Project Icecap which, once delivered, will rank in the top 30 Lürssen yachts by size. Kismet first hit the water on August 11 at Rendsburg, following the drydock flooding on 10 August.
