The 110 metre Lürssen superyacht Radiant has been spotted checking into the Blohm+Voss shipyard in Hamburg for maintenance work. According to BOATPro, the superyacht arrived in Hamburg in January after departing Greece in late December and stopping off in Gibraltar.
Radiant features an exterior design penned by industry legend Tim Heywood while her interiors are the work of Terence Disdale, working in collaboration with Canadian design studio Yabu Pushelberg. Her interiors remain a closely guarded secret, with no images ever published inside the elusive superyacht.
Radiant features a steel hull and aluminium superstructure with a distinctive green-grey paint job. A GT of 5,027 accommodates 20 guests across 10 cabins with further accommodation for a crew of 44. Amenities include a helipad, cinema, spa and gym across a 16.3 metre beam.
The yacht was designed as the sistership to 115 metre Pelorus. She is reported to have a number of high-tech privacy and security features on board.
Radiant can reach a top speed of 21 knots and has a cruising speed of 16 knots powered by twin 13,946hp MTU diesel engines. Her draught is a maximum of 4.6 metres.
Other vessels currently docked in the same shipyard include fellow Tim Heywood creation Carinthia VII as well as the elusive Project Icecap.
Lürssen acquired Blohm+Voss in 2016, and the shipyard remains focused on large-scale refit and maintenance work. Radiant had maintenance work done by MB92 in February 2020 before this more recent service. It is not yet known how long she will spend at Blohm+Voss or what work she is expected to undertake.
Like Pelorus, Al Raya is also considered a close sistership to Radiant with all three superyachts the result of Tim Heywood designs. Heywood will be speaking at the Superyacht Design Festival in Italy next month about his experiences working on some of the world's most memorable yachts.Read More/Tim Heywood's greatest superyacht designs
