It’s the final day of our 2016 Monaco Yacht Show preview, and we feel we’ve saved what could be the main attraction for last. And that’s a lofty claim, considering the other jaw-dropping, cutting-edge yachts we’ve featured this week, like the unique Perini Navi Sybaris, luxurious Baglietto Unicorn, or ultra-modern Admiral Quinta Essentia.
The fifth and final superyacht we’re hyped to see in France comes from one of the most iconic shipbuilding yards on the planet: Lürssen’s Coral Ocean.
Lürssen’s 238-footer will undoubtedly draw the most eyes at the docks of the German shipbuilders. Going back to one of their original masterpieces, the Coral Ocean dates back to the legendary Jon Bannenberg and his work in the early 90’s. His influence is apparent throughout, from the clean exterior lines that’s become his calling card, to the Polynesian-beach-house interior. It’s a timeless profile, one that would still be considered contemporary if it were to be released today.
The ’94 model was one of the first to include both a gym and a spa, both staples in superyacht design today. Despite the build being over a decade old, Lürssen has updated parts of yacht to be in line with today’s charter market.
The owner of the Coral Ocean was so secretive about the superyacht, he never allowed a magazine to write a feature on it.
Now that it’ll make its debut in Monaco, the world’s best kept secret will be exposed for everyone to enjoy, available for charter in the Mediterranean next summer.
