At the end of April, the 90-metre Norn (previously project 1601) left the Lürssen shipyard and embarked on her maiden voyage. (Here all our posts about Lürssen)
A new Lürssen for a repeater couple
Norn was built for an owning couple that previously sailed on a 70-metre Lürssen, which has served them faithfully for over 20 years. They required top-notch design and engineering as well as seagoing comfort for their family. For the exterior, they once again trusted the designer Espen Oeino, who gave the yacht a striking design with extraordinary features and which is dominated by flat surfaces, straight lines and angular corners. The crispness of the exterior styling suggests a geometrical precision that permeates every facet of the yacht. Her interior was designed by Dölker + Voges and echoes the same design themes as her exterior. Cornelsen & Partner was acting as Project Manager in the Owners’ team throughout the construction process.
State-of-the art technology
As with all Lürssens, the yacht is equipped with state-of-the art technology and engineering systems. For instance, zero speed stabilizers, an outside cinema and a liftable pool floor with dance floor illumination. A dynamic positioning system enables electronic anchoring in sensitive and remote areas, protecting the seabed and allowing for safe mooring regardless of water depth.
