Lürssen launches project 13800 – a bespoke 55 metre yacht

Lürssen is proud to announce the successful launching of project 13800 on April 29, 2021. Her delivery is planned for summer 2021 – exactly three years after the owner signed the contract with Lürssen, convinced that no other shipyard could meet his strong demands for a truly bespoke 55-metre yacht with an unusual but for him perfectly fitted layout. 

The designer, Bannenberg & Rowell, gave Project 13800 her very distinctive lines. A fearless use of colours and textures as well as museum quality interior furniture pieces underline the approach of tremendous attention to detail – not only in the interior spaces but also in the technical areas. The experienced owners had a clear idea of what their needs for their lifestyle are. A customized engineered yacht at 55 metres.

Dickie Bannenberg confirms: ”We are excited to see 13800 emerge from her shed. The initial concept was influenced by our studies based on the classic yacht Carinthia VI, designed by Bannenberg Snr, and built by Lürssen in 1973. Every centimetre of interior and exterior space usage has to be presented, discussed and agreed with the owners, and this has led to many inspiring discussions. We really look forward to seeing her completed over the coming months, including a spectacular interior.”Lürssen launches project 13800 – a bespoke 55 metre yachtLürssen launches project 13800 – a bespoke 55 metre yacht


Lürssen is known for manufacturing the largest yachts in the world but is also actively targeting projects in the 55 to 75 metre range. Project 13800 is a first step in reestablishing the brand as a serious proposition for yachts in that size bracket as well.
 
Peter Lürssen, managing partner, notes: “We are very grateful for the client’s trust in us to build his dream of a bespoke 55-metre yacht. The OR-team has fantastic experience with that size of yacht and it has been a very fruitful collaboration so far.”
