First look: 160m Lürssen Project Blue heads out to sea trials

The 160 metre new build Project Blue has left the Lürssen shipyard in Bremen and is en route to the North Sea to begin sea trials. 

First launched in February 2022, the yacht is expected to be the fourth largest yacht in the world once delivered.

Details of the displacement motor yacht have been kept tightly under wraps throughout the construction process, though it is understood it was designed inside and out 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 Øino International and Winch Design.

Images of the superyacht show a pair of 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.
