After a meticulous refit, the German shipyard, Lürssen, premiered the Carinthia VII at the Monaco Yacht Show 2023 – 97 metres of pure elegance and style.
This vessel, designed by Tim Heywood, represents a milestone in the history of Lürssen: built in steel, it exemplifies an extremely refined level of craftsmanship, engineering and design.

I am proud – explained Peter Lürssen, CEO of Lürssen Yachts – to have built the Carinthia VII and to have also participated in its new life after extensive renovation. It is still a special vessel and a testament to the solidity of our German engineering and manufacturing.”

After 20 years, the Carinthia VII left her owners to be repurchased in 2022, moving from exclusively private use to commercial. Indeed, this splendid superyacht is ready to officially enter the world of charter, and will be managed by Fraser. Carinthia’s new life will begin in the Caribbean at the end of 2023.

Refitting – notes Alberto Perrone, refit sales manager for Lürssen – is not only a question of necessary maintenance, but it can also be a way to complete or transform a yacht. We enjoy complex refits because we love being able to help owners with their problems. We want to do things that other shipyards won’t.”


Carinthia VII has 6 guest suites on the forward main deck: two with double size beds, two with twin, while the other two cabins can be turned into play or games rooms for children. Leading the transformation of the interior and exterior design was architecture studio Bizzozero Cassina Architects.

The most visible change is the new 12 metre pool on the main deck, a very comfortable size – nearly that of a pool on land. The front pool overlooking the dining room is completely made in glass, creating a very sociable situation. Even the aft deck was transformed: it was once a place of passage, unused, while now it has a climate controlled 90 square metre gym. To create this new room, 6 tonnes of glass were needed, turning it into a winter garden.

Many of the interior details, however, were untouched as they were in excellent condition. The new owner decided to keep at least one piece of furniture per room as well as the beautiful and singular wood floor. The walls, like most of the yacht, we redecorated using textiles designed by a Venetian artisan.

The Carinthia VII was also completely repainted: its original blue was changed into Majestic Blue, while the superstructure was painted using Matterhorn White. This superyacht has 4 main MTU engines allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 25 knots. Two of the engines underwent strict W6 maintenance.
