Details of Lürssen’s Project Redwood revealed

ADVERTISEMENT

Project Redwood, a 456-foot (139m) motor yacht under construction at Lürssen’s facilities in Bremen, Germany, is being built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure and will be Passenger Yacht Code compliant, according to Nuvolari-Lenard, the Venice-based yacht design studio working on the vessel’s exterior and interior design.

The superyacht will be able to land two helicopters on deck and will carry a fleet of tenders, including several of 50 feet (15m). Once delivered, the yacht will have long-range cruising capabilities for global exploration, according to the design studio.

Nuvolari-Lenard said it is collaborating on Project Redwood with the same owner’s representatives and build team from Moran Yacht & Ship with which they worked on the 289-foot (88m) M/Y Quatroelle, delivered in 2013.

Project Redwood is expected to be delivered to its owner in 2019.
