Lürssen Launches Highly Anticipated 145m 'Luminance'

By Heather Collier

Iconic German shipyard Lürssen has officially launched the highly secretive 145m superyacht 'Luminance'.

After a two year hiatus, Lürssen's Luminance was spotted for the first time this week at the shipyard's facility in Bremen, Germany, and since been seen hitting the water for the first time for its launch.

The project, until now, has been top secret, and is said to be the eighth largest yacht to be built by the shipyard; ranking as the 15th largest yacht in the world.

Sporting a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, construction of Luminance began in 2018, before she was transported for her outfitting in May 2021.

Although details involving her specification are mainly under wraps, she is said to have an internal volume of 9,000 GT, and a beam of 20 metres. 

She was penned by renowned designer Espen Oeino International, marking the 30th collaboration with the shipyard, with naval architecture developed in-house by Lürssen.

Project Luminance is expected to be delivered to her owner later this year, with the 122-metre Project Jag, 90-metre Project 1601, and the 142-metre Project Alibaba also currently underway.
