Lürssen has commented on the successful launching and unveiling of project Niki, which will soon be named "Solandge". Yacht building means team-work and to execute such a big project, an excellent team is necessary. In this case the team consists of Richard Masters, the owner's project manager, exterior designer Espen Oeino, interior designer Aileen Rodriguez and of course the project team of Lürssen.
Lürssen confirms: "We are happy that we have met the high-end expectations from the Owner in terms of product quality and being able to stay within budget and on time. We are looking forward for Solandge to be delivered as scheduled and finding her place amongst her peers as being a remarkable statement in large yacht construction, based on an excellent design and excellent engineering skills."
Espen Oeino has given Niki very harmonious proportions and with a length of 85.10 m and a beam of 13.80 m she boasts extraordinary volumes. Accommodating all of the owner’s requirements she still maintains sleek and very elegant lines, which are underlined by her dark blue hull.
Interior designer Aileen Rodriguez explains what enhances Niki's luxurious style: "The interior has classical touches with a contemporary back drop, making it a transitional interior. The unique mix of rare and striking materials gives the yacht its ultimate look and luxurious style."
Master Yachts have implemented their personalized project management style by placing a permanent onsite project manager and bringing the owner's crew into the build team. The expertise is applied to the entire process through to delivery and preparation for the ongoing operational life of the vessel. Solandge will be an exciting addition to the global charter fleet, she represents the very latest in high-end luxury cruising. With her experienced charter crew she will without doubt provide the ultimate experience to remember. She will be cruising her first season in the Caribbean.
