Lurssen has been very active this last days. With the launch of the brand new 135m Thunder, it reaches a new milestone in the explorer yacht construction and design. She will easily enters in the top 20 superyachts in the world. Designed by the world famous Espen Oeino, her exterior is relatively innovative with a traditional interior. The yacht features an incredible use of glass, floor to ceiling windows easily 8m high, spanning over 3 decks. She took a total of two years to be built after the keel was laid in 2015. Thunder might be the largest explorer yacht ever built, if she truly is one!
I have been sailing all my life, from dinghy racing to Trimaran Orma 60 and currently I am racing on the J 145 Double Take in the Pacific Northwest. As a Business and Marketing student I am working for a Yacht brokerage in Seattle: Swiftsure Yachts. As a sailor I believe that the journey matter even more than the destination. “A ship is safe in a harbour, but that’s not what a ship are made for.”
