Lürssen launches 95m Madsummer

Lürssen’s Project Fiji was launched at a March 19 ceremony, during which the megayacht was christened Madsummer. The American owner of the 311.6-foot (95m) yacht is a repeat customer who has had a series of yachts with the same name, according to news reports.

Built of steel and aluminum, Madsummer is 311.6 feet (95m) long with a 46-foot (14m) beam. Its exterior was designed by London-based studio Harrison Eidsgaard, while Rome-based Laura Sessa designed an interior described as contemporary modern. The yacht can accommodate 20 guests in 10 suites.

Features include a 39-foot (12m) pool and hot tub protected by glass bulwarks, an upper-deck fireplace, a walk-over skylight, exterior staircases, a built-in crane for an aeroboat, and a helicopter landing pad on the foredeck with a below-deck hangar.

Madsummer is the third in a series of 90m-plus megayachts recently launched by the German yard, following the 364-foot (111m) Project TIS launched in August and the 446-foot (136m) Project Shu, now Flying Fox, launched earlier in 2018.

Moran Yacht & Ship, based in Fort Lauderdale, was project manager during the build of Madsummer. The yacht is scheduled for delivery this summer, according to news reports.
