The 115.1-meter Ahpo (previously known as project Enzo) on 24 November 2021 left the Lürssen shipyard and embarked on her maiden voyage. The megayacht was launched by Lürssen in June. In September this bespoke yacht started her sea trials.
She has been built for a repeat client who previously owned 86m Lürssen and required top-notch design and engineering as well as seagoing comfort for his family. For the exterior and interior design, he once again chose design office Nuvolari Lenard. Moran Yacht & Ship managed and supervised the project, bringing with them their wide spectrum of experience and consolidated knowledge.
“The owner’s brief was demanding. However, we believe our engineering expertise has surpassed his wishes to own a yacht that many years from now will be timeless and yet still ahead of its time. Our thanks, of course, go to the good design and communications with the Designers Nuvolari Lenard and to Moran Yacht & Ship, who oversaw the build on behalf of the owner, as well as the Lürssen project team,” says Peter Lürssen.
Ahpo is equipped with state-of-the art technology and engineering systems. For instance, a heat recovery system in the generators heats the water for the pool, leading to reduced electrical power and emissions, while dynamic positioning enables electronic anchoring in sensitive and remote areas, protecting the seabed and allowing for safe mooring regardless of water depth.
Lürssen is a German shipyard with headquarters in Bremen-Vegesack and shipbuilding facilities in Lemwerder, Berne and Bremen-Aumund. Founded in 1875, Lürssen is one of the world's leading builders of custom luxury superyachts and has launched many of the largest yachts in the global fleet.
