Video: 130m+ Project Lightning moves sheds at Lürssen
by Chris Jefferies
As with all in-build Lürssens, details are thin on the ground and the yard is yet to comment, but she has been given the provisional codename Project Lightning by local yachtspotters.
The timelapse footage above shows the hull moving between sheds and gives a good idea of the length, which seems slightly larger than the roughly 130 metre Project Shu.
No designers, naval architects or timeframes have been disclosed, but her current progress suggests that a late 2019 delivery date could be possible, depending on the interior fit-out schedule.
When complete, Project Lightning will rank among the top 20 largest superyachts in the world. Lürssen is understood to be working on four projects over 130 metres in length, including an as-yet unnamed 146 metre and the 135 metre Project Thunder, which is due for delivery early next year.
