Lürssen completes refit on M.Y. Global (ex Kismet)

Lürssen completes refit on M.Y. Global (ex Kismet)

superyacht-global-ex-kismet-refit2014Lürssen, a prestigious German superyacht shipyard, have announced completion of the refit on M.Y. Global, formerly known as Kismet.  Mega yacht Kismet, a 68.15m one of a kind charter yacht, was originally delivered in 2007.  After her sale and name change, super yacht GLOBAL left the shipyard at the end of June 2014 and is now cruising within the Mediterranean waters.

Famous yacht designer Espen Oeino was successfully commissioned to draw the new hull lines, maintaining the DNA of the original design, and the owner is delighted with the result.

Her hull has been given a new lease of life with a fabulous light grey colour and superb shine that Tim Morley described as “a great credit to Lürssen’s refit team and the contractors who undertook the work”.  Another major upgrade was the prestiogious helicopter deck which is now enhanced, significantly larger and safer for regular helicopter operations, all thanks to the consultancy services of Nigel Watson.  The helipad itself is a custom-built Lürssen project and it incorporates stylish lighting and hinged railings.

Similar super yachts are cruising the MEDITERRANEAN for the next few months as well.  In case you are interested in a luxury lifestyle family yacht charter cruise, it is worth knowing that some of them still have good availability during high season.  Most of these mega yachts will cross the Atlantic in Novemeber for another super yacht charter season in the East Caribbean, while some may also head East, towards Indian Ocean and the Pacific or a number of new or exotic holiday destinations where they will offer super yacht charter cruises to selected clientele.
