Lürssen launches project Niki

Lürssen has announced the successful launching and unveiling of project Niki, which will soon be named 'Solandge'.

Yacht building means teamwork and to execute such a big project, an excellent team is necessary.  In this case the team consisted of Richard Masters, the owner's project manager, exterior designer Espen Oeino, interior designer Aileen Rodriguez and of course the project team of Lürssen.

Lürssen confirmed, "We are happy that we have met the high-end expectations from the owner in terms of product quality and being able to stay within budget and on time. We are looking forward to Solandge being delivered as scheduled and finding her place amongst her peers as a remarkable statement in large yacht construction, based on an excellent design and excellent engineering skills."

Espen Oeino has given Niki very harmonious proportions and with a length of 85.10m and a beam of 13.80m she boasts extraordinary volumes. Accommodating all of the owner’s requirements she still maintains sleek and very elegant lines, which are underlined by her dark blue hull.

Interior designer Aileen Rodriguez explained what enhances Niki's luxurious style, "The interior has classical touches with a contemporary back drop, making it a transitional interior. The unique mix of rare and striking materials gives the yacht its ultimate look and luxurious style."

Master Yachts has implemented their personalised project management style by placing a permanent onsite project manager and bringing the owner's crew into the build team. The expertise is applied to the entire process through to delivery and preparation for the ongoing operational life of the vessel.

Solandge will be cruising her first season in the Caribbean.
