She won two superyacht awards in 2009, has circumnavigated the world twice, completed her DNV/GL inspection and received a complete rebuild of her main engines. She underwent a refit in 2018 in the same shipyard’s Lemwerder port. Nurja features an exterior design by Abeking & Rasmussen and an interior by Kirschstein Designs Ltd and Spectrum Interior Design. The catamaran has enough space on board for 12 guests to be accommodated across five staterooms, serviced by a crew of eight. The 498 GT yacht is powered by two Caterpillar C32 engines, which enable her to comfortably cruise at 12.5 knots and reach a top speed of 14.8 knots.
