Project Red­wood is a whop­ping 456-foot (139-me­ter) mo­to­ry­acht un­der con­struc­tion at Lürssen’s Bre­men yard. The yacht is de­signed to have long-range cruis­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties, carry sev­eral mul­tipur­pose ten­ders—some as large as 50 feet length over­all—and be able to land two he­li­copters on deck. She’ll also be Pas­sen­ger Yacht Code com­pli­ant, en­abling her to take more than 12 guests should the owner of­fer her for char­ter.

Venice-based de­sign stu­dio Nu­volari Le­nard, run by Carlo Nu­volari and Dan Le­nard, cre­ated the over­all con­cept as well as ex­te­rior and in­te­rior de­sign, work­ing with in-house in­te­rior de­signer Valentina Zan­nier. Founded in 1992, the firm is one of the most ac­tive in the large-yacht in­dus­try; as of last year, its cu­mu­la­tive length of yachts de­liv­ered was 3,150 feet (960 me­ters). Project Red­wood, with a steel hull and alu­minum su­per­struc­ture, will add to that yard­stick.

Nu­volari Le­nard is known for in­cor­po­rat­ing swim­ming pools into its yacht de­signs, and the one aboard Project Red­wood is ex­pected to be par­tially pro­tected from the el­e­ments. Sports fa­cil­i­ties and a div­ing cen­ter on the yacht’s lower decks are also part of the plan.

Project Red­wood is the se­cond col­lab­o­ra­tion among Nu­volari Le­nard, Lürssen and Mo­ran Yacht & Ship, which is the owner’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive. This same group worked on the 289-foot (88-me­ter) Qu­at­troelle, launched in 2013. Project Red­wood is sched­uled for de­liv­ery in 2019.
