Lürssen launched project Fiji from the floating dock 28 months after her keel was laid in 2016. During the ceremony, the yacht was named Madsummer. Her delivery is planned for summer 2019.
The Owner’s captain and Moran Yacht & Ship supervised the project and brought in their huge spectrum of experience and consolidated knowledge.
Harrison Eidsgaard has given Madsummer very harmonious proportions and with a length of 95 meters and a beam of 14 meters, she boasts extraordinary volumes whilst still maintaining sleek and very elegant lines. Wide exterior staircases together with centerline openings provide seamless connections between the generous exterior decks. A fabulous pool and Jacuzzi deck aft is raised three steps and is protected by glass bulwarks that are an integral part of the exterior profile, providing for very clean and uncluttered hull surfaces.
The interior is designed by Studio Laura Sessa and can best be described as contemporary modern. Laura Sessa comments: “For this interior design yacht project, I invested inner artistic creativity due to my long relationship with the Owner. I playfully created spaces full of customised details and colours from the sea, emanating harmony and elegance. All decks were designed with a specific focus on comfort but also practicality. The result will be absolutely stunning.”
Among the special features are a large beach club and spa area with a sea terrace on the lower deck. On the upper deck aft, there is a walkable skylight and an integrated fireplace for cosy moments in the evening. The bow is laid out for a certified helicopter landing area. The sun deck aft offers a hidden crane in the bulwark to handle an aeroboat. [via Lurssen]
