Project Redwood, the 139 meters (456-foot) motor yacht has been a closely held secret since the concept was announced in 2015. Now two years since Project Redwood became public and two years before its launch, design firm Nuvolari-Lenard, handling all aspects of design, has released more information about the secretive project.
Project Redwood features a displacement steel-hull and an aluminium superstructure, with teak decks, and is being built to the Lloyds Register Passenger Yacht Code (PYC), allowing it to accommodate 36 guests in 20 staterooms. This luxury yacht is also fitted with ‘zero speed stabilisers’ which work at anchor, increasing onboard comfort when the yacht is stationary, particularly in rough waters.
The steel-hulled megayacht is under construction at Lürssen’s facilities in Bremen, Germany and managed by Moran Yacht & Ship. Moran says Project Redwood is on schedule. When it is delivered to its owner in 2019, Project Redwood could be among the top 10 world’s largest superyachts. It will tie with Rising Sun as the sixth-largest yacht Lürssen has built over the years.
Nuvolari-Lenard, The Venice, Italy–based designers have released more information about Project Redwood. Project Redwood will have two helipads for simultaneously landing helicopters in different deck locations. Redwood’s tender fleet is also supersized compared to most superyachts, including several that are 50 feet long.
Nuvolari-Lenard, which did both the interior and exterior designs, created a large spa, sports, and diving centre on the lower decks within close proximity to the water. A large swimming pool, partially covered for all-weather use, is one of many standout features on the yacht. The owner intends to use the vessel for long-range cruising, so the hull was designed for efficiency. The designers added that the boat would be able to undertake “independent global exploration.”
Other amenities include:
Gym, Jacuzzi (on deck), Sauna, Lift (Elevator), Beach Club, Tender Garage, Air Conditioning, Underwater Lights, and Owner Study.
We expect to learn more about the megayacht as construction progresses.
