Eclipse back in Hamburg

Luxuryyacht Eclipse in Hamburg

It’s been quite a while since my last blog post here on Superyachtblog. Currently we are focusing on social media and improving of our photographer skills. But we hope to deliver more content here as well.

A few weeks ago the legendary superyacht Eclipse arrived in Hamburg. This 163 meter long vessel was built in 2010 in Hamburg at Blohm&Voss shipyard. And now she’s back at her construction site for a refit. Eclipse is well known for her serial yacht owner Roman Abramovic. As well as for many rumors about her technical features. Confirmed is that Terence Disdale designed her exterior and interior. Eclipse is the largest yacht drawn by him and his team, but he is responsible for several other well known yachts like A+(ex. Topaz), Pelorus, Radiant, Tatoosh,…

And here are some pictures of megayacht Eclipse in Hamburg. If you are interested in more pictures, please drop a message to

The largest charter yacht to date! Flying Fox

Flying Fox yacht in Monaco

Flying Fox is a really impressive appearance! With 136m, which is larger than a football field, she’s the largest yacht for charter at the moment! The serial yacht owner who already owned a Nobiskrug motoryacht with a length of 73,5m, with the same name. But his present yacht was built 2019 in Bremen at the Lürssen shipyard. The grey hull and her beautiful lines were drawn by Espen Oeino and Mark Berryman designed her massive interior! Flying Fox already visited the famous Norwegian fjords on her maiden voyage and is now available in the Med. The rumours are that she can be chartered for about 4.000.000€/week + expenses. Flying Fox is available for charter through Imperial Yachts.

Enjoy the pictures of this giant!

Katara, 124m, Lürssen

Die 124 Meter lange Superyacht Katara, gebaut im Jahr 2010 bei Lürssen in Bremen ist im Moment zu Besuch in Norddeutschland. Sie ist aktuell in Rendsburg, für ein Refit bei Nobiskrug. Da die Docks der Werft zunächst noch belegt waren ging es an den Pier des Rendsburger Kreishafens. Nach einer Probefahrt in der Kieler Bucht am 6.2.2019, bei der unter anderem die Motoren der Luxusyacht getestet wurden, ging es einen Tag später in das nun freigewordene Dock bei Nobiskrug.

Nachfolgend nun einige Bilder von Katara in Rendsburg und auf dem Weg zu ihrer Probefahrt in Kiel.

Projekt TIS, Lürssen, Rendsburg

On the 13th of August project TIS (Palo Alto) was launched by Luerssen in Rendsburg. It was a big pleasure to see this huge superyacht hits the water for the first time.  I’ve spent several hours watching this scenery. When she came out of the shed and made a 180° turn it was so interesting so see so many details and beautiful lines all over the whole superyacht!

This 111m superyacht will be delivered at the end of this year. TIS was designed by Winch Design and managed by Moran Yacht & Ship.

Areti, 85m, Lürssen Yacht delivered

Areti, 85m, Lürssen
Superyacht Areti returns from sea trials.

Lürssen is delighted to reveal that they will be displaying the latest delivery from the yard at the Monaco Yacht Show this year. This 85-metre sensation will be spending her first summer in the Mediterranean and her world debut will be the highlight of the port during the show. Following her effortless sea trials, Lürssen is proud to announce the successful delivery of this exquisite yacht, Areti, on 19 July 2017.

Winch Design has been responsible for both the stunning exterior and interior design and has given the yacht a sleek and perfectly balanced signature, complemented by a traditional but fresh interior styling. The subtle cream hull, along with the white superstructure and grey accents are of a similar design to the owner’s previous yachts.

Areti is a voluminous yacht, featuring an enormous and private master suite with eight spacious guest cabins. The yacht has a completely bespoke design and was built to satisfy the owners’ exacting requirements. Meeting the highest of standards, and without losing any charm or grandeur, she has been meticulously kept in line with the Passenger Yacht Code to be able to accommodate a larger number of guests.

With sumptuous, neutral fabrics and lavish wood throughout, she presents an air of sophistication as well as exuding comfort. Many of the entertaining areas of the yacht impose a beach-chic vibe without losing her quintessential elegance. On the lower deck aft, one can find a luxurious spa complete with sauna, hot tub, full depth plunge pool and experience showers. This magnificent area further extends to the adjacent relaxation beach club, which in turn, opens up to the vast swim platform via a large transom door.

Private and serene exterior deck spaces provide numerous other calm zones where one can feel at home. For example, the owners can fully enjoy their own secluded rest area forward of the owners suite, that boasts its own Jacuzzi and spacious sunbed, along with a breakfast table. Guests can also take advantage of another large Jacuzzi with views from the bridge and sun deck whilst indulging on the generous sun beds.

Areti would not be complete without the certified Heli-landing area, providing easy transfers to and from the yacht for the owners and their guests.
