German shipyard Lürssen has moved its 142-metre superyacht Redwood into final construction stage at the builder’s Vegesack facility in Bremen. The gigayacht also known as project Opus is set to enter top-15 largest yachts in the world once delivered.
This vessel has already become history as the largest yacht ever sold and built by a brokerage company, namely Moran Yacht & Ship. Designed by the team at Nuvolari & Lenard; Project Redwood is being built to a Moran Yacht & Ship specification and her construction is overseen by them.
The sale of Project Redwood was announced In September 2015, as a 139-metre project. She was later extended at 3 metres, boasting six decks, with sports and diving centre, a generous partially-covered swimming pool, two helipads and a whole bunch of large tenders (15 metres).
Venive-based design studio Nuvolari & Lenard created the yacht’s interior design; which will be able to accommodate up to 36 guests in 20 staterooms. Redwood will also be able for long-range and efficient global explorations. The studio is collaborating with the same owner’s representatives and build team from Moran Yacht & Ship with whom they worked on 88-metre M/Y Quatroelle, delivered in 2013.
With her delivery scheduled to 2020, the gigayacht was the first one to enter the recently upgraded floating shed at Vegesack facility. As to the yard, it has been continuously busy with giga projects recently; with three vessels of over 90-metres LOA launched: a 95-metre Madsummer, an impressive 136-metre Flying FOX and 111-meter Project TIS.
