Lurssen’s 130-metre-plus Project Shu spotted on the water

Lurssen, the German superyacht builder and brand behind some of the largest and most iconic yachts in recent years, has floated out a new superyacht according to footage that has emerged on social media.

As one of Lurssen's most secretive projects—out of the large number that they currently have under construction—little is known about the yacht, which some have referred to under the project name Shu, though this is likely to be different to the internal name used by Lurssen.

First seen in November 2016 in a less completed state, the yacht is believed to be at least 130 metres (427 foot) in length. Her delivery is likely to take place in 2018.

Other projects in build at the shipyard include the 130m (427ft) Thunder, 139-metre-plus (456-foot) Redwood and 112m (367ft) Palo Alto/TIS.
