Arriving in the Norwegian port of Bergen early yesterday morning was the 95.2-metre Lürssen Kismet.
The Espen Øino-designed yacht, alongside close to Bergen’s historical Hanseatic waterfront buildings, drew many admiring glances from locals and tourists enjoying the sunshine and soaring temperatures. The Lürssen Kismet had made passage from Northern Germany, and was heading for a cruise of the fjords.
Kismet, delivered in 2014, has had a busy time on the water since handover, with a mix of chartering, private cruising and corporate entertaining. The yacht charters through Moran Yacht & Ship, who managed her build, from $1.2 million per week.
The yacht is characterised by some amazing external spaces, including a fully enclosable outside ‘winter garden’ area on the owner’s deck, a foredeck area that serves as a helipad and basketball court, and a three-part sundeck pool with a hot-tub and ‘rock garden’ run-off area.
Inside, the Reymond Langton Design styling is a contemporary interpretation of Art Deco, and again features some incredible set-pieces, such as the sweeping staircase between the main and owner’s deck, with a video walls either side.
The generous lower-deck spa area is somewhere that has been popular with guests, with an Eastern styling theme and intricate detailing throughout.
