 Lürssen delivers 140m Project Lightning
Lürssen, one of the of the world's leading shipyards, has delivered a 140m yacht, named Project Lightning, yesterday morning.The project was known as one of the most secretive yachts in recent years and therefore, even the length was unknown until its delivery. The best guesstimate from yacht spotters is that the megayacht measures at least 130 m.With a code name like this and such length, this megayacht had plenty of people in anxious anticipation. So what do we know about Project Lightning so far?The first time Project Lightning hit the waters was in July 2019. The yacht was spotted for the first time in December 2017, when it moved into the build Hall, to replace the then in-build Flying Fox.While there are not a lot of details known, Project Lightning's two helipads were displayed as well as her layout look to host a large superyacht beach club. However, no designers, architects, or timeline has been disclosed.With its completion Project Lightning will be among the top 20 largest superyachts worldwide.

Royal Huisman showcases new 46m Project 405
Royal Huisman showcases a new lightweight 46m high-performance cruiser sloop: “Nauta Reichel Pugh 151”. The owners wanted to be part of the whole process of designing and building the boat. Which is why from the moment of the project’s inception, they drew together the team that could realize this experience for them – Nigel Ingram of MCM Newport and the owners’ professional race team for specialist consultation, Nauta Design for the exterior and interior styling, Reichel/Pugh for the yacht’s naval architecture, Rondal for her carbon Panamax rig, and Royal Huisman to provide their most-qualified engineering and construction skills for the optimal end result. Royal Huisman Project 405’s lightweight aluminium and carbon composite construction will present formidable competition to existing carbon yachts, whilst combining comfort with the low sound levels of aluminium yachts. The team worked with “intelligent lock-down” measures implemented in the Netherlands since mid-March 2020 and promptly adopted by Royal Huisman. These measures allow the shipyard team to continue working in strict observance of the regulations, such as the continuous monitoring of its workers’ health situation and etc.According to Jan Timmerman, CEO Royal Huisman: “It is truly an honour to work with the owners and this great expert team of designers to realize their lightweight superyacht. The team of Royal Huisman is proud that the owners and their team have selected us for this innovative lightweight construction which was cleverly developed by our in-house R&D team, backed up with over 55 years of experience with aluminium construction. This latest superyacht order confirms Royal Huisman’s adage “If you can DREAM it, we can BUILD it!”Royal Huisman Project 405 is scheduled to be delivered in 2022.
First Princess X95 started sea trials in Plymouth
The X95 represents the third project of the partnership between Princess, Olesinski, and Pininfarina. Challenged with setting a new standard of layout excellence, which is defined by large, adaptable spaces that can be used differently, it offers a new level of the boating lifestyle.The British shipyard has revealed the 29.11m superyacht in 2018. A luxurious modern interior accommodates up to 8 guests and a crew of 4 people is also housed on board.Princess X95 is built for a life at sea, and focused on the comfort, so life on it is unlike that on any other boat its size. The layout of the yacht provides 10% more outdoor space and 40% more indoor space than a traditional motor yacht.Characterized by beautifully sculpted surfaces and long flowing lines, the X95 defines a striking design language for her class.Additional port and starboard guest cabins can each be configured with two single beds or one double bed, whilst generous crew quarters complete her extensive accommodation.The first Princess X95 has taken to the water in Plymouth and started sea trials.
