First look: 158m Project Blue launched by Lürssen
The 158-metre new build Project Blue has been launched by German shipbuilder Lürssen, hitting the water earlier today at the yard’s Bremen facility in the north of the country.
Details of the displacement motor yacht have been kept tightly under wraps throughout the construction process, though it has been revealed that the interiors were designed by Terence Disdale.
So far, the yard has revealed that Project Blue has a beam of 22 metres and an impressive interior volume of 15,320 GT – similar in size to 156 metre Dilbar, which has a volume of 15,917 GT and was delivered by Lürssen back in 2016 with design by Espen Oeino International and Winch Design.
First images have now been revealed of the project following the launch, debuting her clean lines and raked bow.
Images of the superyacht also show that she is equipped with two helicopter landing sites; a large helideck at the bow and a smaller helipad aft.
Each of the four upper decks features a large al fresco entertaining area and there is a swimming platform connected to a beach club, plus forward stateroom balconies on either side.

The 74-metre Limited Edition superyacht that boasts 1,790 GT of interior volume has been launched from the Amels and Damen Yachting‘s facility in Vlissingen, the Netherlands.Project 24207 is the seventh bespoke superyacht from the series that features an exterior styled by Tim Heywood Design, which has been laid onto a hull designed by Amels.

She has been crafted with a six stateroom configuration, providing plenty of space for up to 12 guests. Some of her stand out features include a dedicated owner’s deck with exclusive access to a foredeck Jacuzzi, and an increased capacity helicopter deck.In terms of performance, the Amels Project 24207 will be capable of cruising for 5, 000 nautical miles at 12.5 knots and will be capable of reaching a top speed of 16.5 knots. She is said to be “equipped with the newest IMO Tier III clean emissions power and propulsion package”.
“Seeing Amels 24207 head out of the shed, into the daylight and onto the water for the first time is a proud moment for the entire team at Damen Yachting. We are now looking forward to the next phase as we embark upon the final build stages and sea trials ahead of delivery to her owner, ready for a summer of adventures at sea.” Peter Dijkwel, Project Manager Damen Yachting commented.
Amels’ Project 24207 has left the dry dock and has a scheduled delivery date penned in for this summer. Advertisementhttps://5635651be6d8b08b5b20317d0501a7af.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html
