New Details Revealed About 90 Metre Lürssen Yacht Project 1601
by Miranda Blazeby
German yard Lürssen has revealed new details about its in-build 90 metre yacht Project 1601 that was glimpsed for the first time earlier this week.
The 90 metre project was technically launched down the slipway at Rendsburg in Northern Germany on May 26, with a completed hull and superstructure.
The yard has now revealed that the exterior design of the project has been penned by legendary superyacht designer Espen Øino. Described as "a striking design with extraordinary features” by the yard, the exterior is “dominated by planar surfaces, straight lines and angular corners”.
“The crispness of the exterior styling suggests a geometrical precision that permeates every facet of the yacht," it added.
Inside, the yacht's interior design penned by Dölker + Voges will mirror the exterior design. Cornelsen & Partner meanwhile is acting as the project manager throughout the build. The yacht's beam measures 14.7 metres.
Following the launch, the yacht entered Lürssen’s floating dock and is not expected to be seen again until next year.
The launch comes after the 53.9 metre superyacht Project 13800 was spotted at Lürssen’s Rendsburg facility last month.
