To top off what’s been an astoundingly busy period for Lürssen, it’s been announced that a second superyacht has been launched from Bremen, just days after Project Jupiter hit the water. 111m project TIS, managed by Moran Yacht and Ship, which is scheduled for delivery in 2018, is the epitome of Lürssen’s ability to build vast superyachts, which are elegant and well balanced, without appearing bulky or oversized, which is always challenging for such voluminous yachts.
Just 11 months after her keel laying, already can we see the sweeping lines of the windows and balconies, and while they may be considerably less extreme than Project Jupiter, they still make up a significant feature of the yacht’s profile. Project TIS is also the child of a well-rooted relationship between Lürssen and Winch Design, the latter of which is responsible for both the interior and exterior of the motoryacht, and has now worked on four exterior Lürssen projects and seven interior projects, dating back to 2004.
Although little is known about the yacht’s interior, we do know that TIS will feature large sweeping transom staircases, creating an impressive entrance, which Lürssen has described as “palatial”. Due to her colossal volume, the superyacht, which is spread over six decks, has exceptionally high ceilings throughout and sophisticated interior design, which are bound to impress having come from the drawing boards of the renowned London-based studio.
The German shipyard now has yachts over 100m between launch and delivery, now awaiting outfitting and trials, one of which – 106m Project Mistral – is scheduled for delivery this year. Additionally, Lürssen has five additional projects under construction, with an average LOA of 103m.
For the next year and a half, the yacht will undergo an extensive period of outfitting, covering and trailing prior to her delivery, but in the mean time, Lürssen is on track to maintain this busy period with plenty of scheduled launches and deliveries.
