[dropcap]P[/dropcap]roject SHU has successfully concluded her final sea trials in the Baltic Sea and she will be delivered next autumn. Designer Espen Oeino is the signature of her elegant and graceful exterior line. The balance and proportion of the exterior profile allows generous deck space and a wide range of options for owners and guests: from sun opulent and open entertainment areas to more shaded and intimate spaces. A special feature is the enormous swimming pool, which runs transversely on the main deck aft. The exterior also boasts two helicopter landing pads, one on the bridge deck and another on the sun deck aft, allowing for multiple helicopter use for owners and guests. Other highlights of her profile include the sea terraces and platforms, which enable guests to access the water easily for water sport activities as well as relaxation.
In perfect combination with her beautiful exterior, designer Mark Berryman has created an interior that is nothing short of spectacular. SHU has a calm and spacious feel which has been beautifully crafted with the use of soft neutral tones and tactile finishes.
Imperial Yachts is responsible for supervising the built project and have brought with them their vast experience and knowledge. “Project SHU represents a major milestone for Imperial”, says Julia Stewart, Director at Imperial Yachts. “Being involved in impressive superyacht projects like these show our capacity and experience in superyacht and megayacht management, with regular deliveries of 80m+ projects supervised and operated by our team since 2015. Our strong and very dynamic links with Lürssen, Espen Oeino and Mark Berryman helped to achieved one of the most impressive vessel of the next decade”.
Shipyard Managing Partner Peter Lürssen proudly states: “SHU fulfils the requests of a very experienced owner in an exceptional way. The owner’s input within all aspects of the yacht’s design was clear, strong and exacting. Building SHU was a significant challenge and we are very proud of this achievement. She represents another remarkable milestone in our history”.
