Lurssen Launches Project Blue: The Largest Superyacht of the Year
The largest superyacht of 2022, Lurssen’s 160m Project Blue, has hit the water in Germany.
Due to be delivered in 2023, 160m Project Blue was launched at Lurssen's Bremen shipyard in the early hours of this morning. Originally planned to have hit the water late last week, her launch was delayed due to poor weather conditions during Storm Eunice.
As one of the largest superyachts in the world, Project Blue's launch is certainly set to stun the superyacht industry and shake up the global rankings (defined by size). After her launch, Project Blue now takes the fifth position in the Top 100, pushing another of Lurssen's large yachts, 156m Dilbar, into sixth.
Following the world's largest superyacht, 180.6m Azzam, delivered in 2013 by Lurssen, Project Blue will become the second-largest Lurssen-built superyacht. The German-based shipyard has only further proved its worthy reputation as a leading yacht builder, producing some of the yachting world’s biggest and most recognisable vessels, and now adding Project Blue to their impressive fleet.
With very little known about the new build and her construction process, Project Blue is one of the most secretive, yet exciting superyacht projects currently underway. We would like to wish Lurssen every success for the next stages of Project Blue's construction and we are certainly looking forward to her future updates.
Project Blue is a custom motor yacht with a 21m beam, her other specifications are currently unknown.
