Lurssen, one of the most respected German shipbuilding companies, recently announced that it launched its Project Thunder on the 3rd of April. Project Thunder is a 120-meter motor yacht developed in collaboration with Espen Oenino, a designer who has worked on dozens of motor yacht projects across the globe.
According to Lurssen, it launched Project Thunder 24 months after laying its keel in 2015. The company needs to install the interior, after which it will conduct extensive sea trials to ensure that Project Thunder meets the highest expectations. Lurssen plans to deliver the yacht to her owner near the end of 2018.
Project Thunder’s owner plans to spend a lot of time cruising the waters of Asia. The name “Thunder” was chosen in honor of Lei Gong, a Chinese god whose name translates to English as “Lord of Thunder.”
Expect to learn more about this yacht as Lurssen works toward the project’s completion.
