Lurssen has remained a family-run German shipyard since its inception in 1875 and is now in its fourth generation of private ownership. The company was founded by Friedrich Lurssen with a desire to create a leading shipyard in both quality and performance.
The revered German yacht builder has announced the successfully completed the refit of Global – formerly known as Kismet – which has left the shipyard and is now in the Mediterranean.
The hull has been given a new lease of life with a stunning light grey colour and tremendous shine that Tim Morley describes as “a great credit to Lürssen’s refit team and the contractors who undertook the work”.
her helicopter deck has been enhanced and is now significantly larger and safer for regular helicopter operations thanks to the consultancy services of Nigel Watson. The larger helipad was built at Lürssen and incorporates lighting and hinged railings.
Espen Oeino was commissioned to draw the new hull lines, maintaining the DNA of the original design, and the owner is delighted with the result.
Morley Yachts oversaw the minor changes made in the interior, in accordance with the new owner’s taste as the owner’s representatives while Hill Robinson supervised the refit.
