Compass Tenders Announces Delivery of Twin Tenders Built for Lurssen's 160m 'Blue'

By Heather Collier

Compass Tenders are delighted to confirm that two 12.5m limousine tenders, built for Lurssen's 160m 'Blue', have now been delivered.

At 12.5m in length, the two limousines are some of Compass' largest to date. The spacious interior cabin is rich with luxury and opulent furnishings, complimented with a stunning colour scheme that matches the iconic vessel.

The tenders will typically be boarded via the aft platform, with guests stepping onto a flush deck that matches the height of the mothership’s stern platform.

For ultimate seclusion, privacy glass stretches the length of the cabin on both sides as well as overhead. In terms of seating, up to 14 guests can be comfortably accommodated inside, with a head compartment incorporated forward.

In the exterior spaces, guests will find seating to host up to six people to aft, along with a large 130 litre fridge, two large storage drawers and worktops for drinks service.

Both tenders boast a superior speed of up to 45 knots with exceptional seakeeping. In terms of performance, they are powered by two 440hp Volvo engines for high-speed VIP transfers in all weather conditions.

First launched in early 2022, Blue is now the fifth largest yacht in the world, and was successfully delivered to her owner in July last year.

Other key elements of Blue include a pair of helicopter landing sites; a large helideck at the bow and a smaller helipad aft. Each of the four upper decks features a large al fresco entertaining area and there is a swimming platform connected to a beach club, plus forward stateroom balconies on either side.
