Lürssen has undertaken a refit on M/Y Global (ex Kismet), with work completing at the end June. The 68.15m yacht was originally delivered by the yard in 2007, with Morley Yachts now acting as the owner's representative and Hill Robinson supervising the recent refit.

Work included a new light grey hull paint, that Tim Morley of Morely Yachts describes as “a great credit to Lürssen’s refit team and the contractors who undertook the work”.  Global's helicopter deck has been enhanced and is now significantly larger and safer for regular helicopter operations thanks to the consultancy services of Nigel Watson. The larger helipad was built at Lürssen and incorporates lighting and hinged railings. Espen Oeino was commissioned to draw the new hull lines, maintaining the DNA of the original design, and the yard reports that the owner is delighted with the result. Minor changes have also been made in the interior, in accordance with the new owner's taste.
