Lürssen recently launched a 182ft/55m yacht —Project 13800— with exterior and interior design by Bannenberg & Rowell. Her delivery is planned for summer 2021 –three years after the owner signed the contract for her build.

Project 13800 incorporates the use of strong colors and textures as well as museum quality interior furniture pieces. The experienced owners had a clear idea of what their needs for their lifestyle are.

Dickie Bannenberg says,” We are excited to see 13800 emerge from her shed. The initial concept was influenced by our studies based on the classic yacht Carinthia VI, designed by Bannenberg Snr, and built by Lürssen in 1973. Every centimeter of interior and exterior space usage has to be presented, discussed and agreed with the owners, and this has led to many inspiring discussions. We really look forward to seeing her completed over the coming months, including a spectacular interior.”


Lürssen is known for building some of the largest yachts in the world but is also actively targeting projects in the 182-foot-246-foot (55 to 75 meter) range. Project 13800 is a first step in reestablishing the brand as a serious proposition for yachts in that size bracket as well.

Peter Lürssen, managing partner, notes: “We are very grateful for the client’s trust in us to build his dream of a bespoke 55-meter yacht. The OR-team has fantastic experience with that size of yacht, and it has been a very fruitful collaboration so far.”
