The launch of the 142m Project Redwood at Lürssen has been announced on Moran Yacht & Ship’s website. The company sold the yacht and its new build team have overseen the project.

Designed by the team at Nuvolari & Lenard, Project Redwood will accommodate 36 guests in 20 staterooms and is said to have numerous unique features that will be revealed at a later date. The project is due for completion in 2020.

Over the last five years, Lürssen has been the most successful shipyard in the 90m-plus new build market, according to The Superyacht Intelligence Agency. With eight deliveries in this size segment since 2014, with an average LOA of 116.8m, a maximum LOA of 156m, an average gt of 6,930 and a maximum gt of 15,917, the shipyard leads in the 90m+ category ahead of Feadship. In comparison, Feadship has delivered five yachts over 90m, with an average LOA of 98.5m, in the same time period.

Moran Yacht & Ship has also just announced the sale of 125m Project Gaja, which is to be built in Northern Europe. The company is overseeing the build and will reveal more details in time.
