The contemporary and glamorous hand of Marc Newson, a London-based Australian designer, is the distinctive trait of the new “Project Cosmos” by  Lürssen, a 114.20 metre long mega yacht currently under construction in the German shipyard.

The designer, who began working in the boating industry in 2010 with his original and sophisticated interpretation of the iconic Aquariva, designed the exterior and interior of this gigantic yacht which, once finished (expected in 2024) will be the fifth largest of the 7 over 100 metre yachts launched by  Lürssen.

Very little information has been released so far by the shipyard. But with its steel hull and structure, in the first shared photographs, Project Cosmos stands out with its explorer profile, and forward superstructure, leaving as much space as possible to the stern.

The aft deck can therefore be fitted with a pool and has an end channel that could be used as an entrance for a generously sized tender. On top of the four decks, a 360-degree view cupola can be inferred.

Its smooth and enveloping lines can be clearly seen, and are a trademark of anything designed by Marc Newson, starting with the above mentioned Riva motoryacht, whose aluminium stern turns into a sort of thick leaf folded in on itself towards the boat’s interior.

Project Cosmos will also be the first Lürssen project to include a hydrogen fuel cell system, a sign of the German shipyard’s ongoing research into sustainability.
