10 Biggest Lurssen Superyachts
10. Project Jupiter
Following one of the busiest months in the German yard’s history with three launches measuring over 100 metres in length, we take a look at the 10 biggest Lürssen yachts ever built.
The newest addition to our list of the largest Lürssen superyachts, Project Jupiter emerged from the yard’s Bremen facility in October 2016. Her bold exterior styling is by H2 Yacht Design, while the interior décor is courtesy of March & White. Both studios are working with Lürssen for the first time, bringing a fresh perspective to large yacht design.
9. Golden Odyssey
Golden Odyssey is not the biggest Lürssen ever, but she still makes it into the top 10. The five-deck yacht is said to be designed by Martin Francis with Alberto Pinto interiors. Golden Odyssey was spotted leaving the German yard in July 2015 and is believed to be owned by Prince Khaled of Saudi Arabia.
Another big Lürssen yacht on our list designed by Espen Øino is the 124 metre Katara. This very private superyacht is said to belong to a Middle Eastern owner, and she features an interior by the late Alberto Pinto.
Another big Lürssen yacht with a famous owner is Octopus, owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. This Lürssen stands out on the list as being the world’s largest explorer yacht, and Octopus is used for true scientific expeditions, such as when Paul Allen and his crew discovered a long-lost WWII shipwreck while on board Octopus this year.
6. Rising Sun
The sixth biggest Lürssen yacht to date, Rising Sun has had her fair share of time in the sun thanks to her famous owners. She was built for Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, and now Rising Sun is owned by US record executive David Geffen. The window-full design lets lots of light into Rising Sun’s interior by Laura Seccombe.
5. Al Salamah
At the time of her launch in 2009, Al Salamah wasn’t just the biggest Lürssen yacht but the largest yacht in the world. She once belonged to Saudi royalty, Prince Sultan bin Abdul Aziz. Compared to the massively voluminous Dilbar,she “only” has a gross tonnage of 7,500GT.
Launched in 2012, the 147 metre Lürssen yacht Topaz is certainly one of the biggest. She is designed by two of the top superyacht designers in the UK, with Tim Heywood penning the exterior — as well as her cool lighting scheme that lights up the night — while Terence Disdale was responsible for interior design.
3. Al Said
Al Said features an enormous interior, measuring in at a staggering 15,850 gross tonnes. The 155 metre yacht steel and aluminium yacht was launched in 2008 and features exterior design by Espen Øino and interiors by Jonathan Quinn Barnett.
If you are counting volume rather than length, Dilbar is actually the biggest Lürssen yacht: her seven decks are stretched along a 156-metre full-displacement hull for a total internal volume of 15,917 gross tonnes.
Following her delivery in June 2016, Lürssen also claimed two other records for Dilbar — her 180 cubic metre on-board swimming pool is believed to be the largest on any yacht, while the 30,000kw diesel electric power plant is thought to be the most powerful ever fitted to a superyacht, giving her a cruising speed of 22.5 knots.
The biggest Lürssen yacht, 180 metre Azzam is also the world’s largest yacht. Designed by Nauta and launched in 2013, Azzam is the flagship the German builder’s fleet.
Powered by twin diesel engines and two gas turbines, Azzam blasts off at 30 knots — extremely impressive for a yacht of her size.
And, despite shaky claims of a new world’s biggest yacht on the horizon, Azzam will be the largest yacht in the world for the foreseeable future.
