The German shipyard Lürssen—which will deliver the world’s largest privately owned yacht, the 591-foot Azzam, this fall—continues to impress with its newest build. Developed under the project name Niki, the six-deck yacht recently completed sea trials, and its owner is set to christen the vessel Solandge upon delivery this fall. The 280-foot yacht features exterior lines penned by the Norwegian naval architect (and frequent Lürssen collaborator) Espen Oeino, with interiors from interior designer Aileen Rodriguez. Solandge will be available for charter in the Caribbean this coming winter through Master Yachts, based in Mallorca, Spain. Charter rates have not yet been released.
