Written by Charl van Rooy

One of 2021’s largest superyacht projects is nearing completion in Germany where the 138.9-metre explorer yacht Solaris is undertaking a second series of sea trials on the North Sea this week. Built by Lloyd Werft in Bremerhaven, Solaris was commissioned by an experienced owner and designed by Marc Newson, an Australian industrial designer.

Shrouded in secrecy with no official details revealed about the project yet, Solaris is believed to be fully kitted for the autonomous operations expected from a vessel of this size. On-deck highlights include a helicopter landing pad and hangar on the upper aft deck and an open main deck aft with a beach club setup towards the stern where guests will find a large swimming pool and integrated sun pads.Solaris yacht by Lloyd Werft sea trialsPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesSolaris yacht by Lloyd Werft sea trialsPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times

Fitted with a power and energy management system from ABB, Solaris is equipped with two Azipods powered by nine megawatts - the most powerful of its kind ever installed on a yacht.Solaris yacht by Lloyd Werft sea trialsPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesSolaris yacht by Lloyd Werft sea trialsPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesSolaris yacht by Lloyd Werft sea trialsPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesSolaris yacht by Lloyd Werft sea trialsPhoto: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
