Le projet Orchid, un yacht de 91 mètres de long pour 14.45 mètres de large réalisé par Lürssen, vient d’achever ses essais en mer Baltique. Le chantier allemand indique que sa livraison interviendra à la fin de l’été. Mis sur cale en 2012, le navire avait connu une première mise à flot technique en septembre 2013. La coque était alors repassée en cale sèche afin d'être armée, une seconde mise à l'eau intervenant le 30 avril dernier. 

Selon Lürssen :

Project Orchid has successfully concluded her sea trials in the Baltic Sea under perfect weather conditions. Her final delivery is planned for late summer 2015.

Both Exterior and Interior design are by Reymond Langton Design. The Exterior of Project Orchid is designed around creating a harmonious balance. From a distance, the sweeping curves and elegant proportions give the vessel feminine beauty and elegance and allow the strong, masculine details to emerge; sharp lines define the strong, sculptured surfaces that have been carefully styled to create a sharp contrast with highlights and shadows that lend the superstructure a unique form that subtly changes in different lights as the sun moves across the sky.The balance and proportion of the yacht’s profile also allows for generous exterior decks that offer range of options for guests to enjoy, from sun-drenched, open entertainment areas to more sheltered, intimate formal spaces.The crew is now working closely over the final months before delivery with the Yacht Management and Project Coordination teams at Y.CO, who coordinated the build throughout, to prepare the yacht for operational use.

Project Orchid will be privately used and will head to Norway for her maiden voyage and for a crew training trip. From there she will make her way from Europe across the Atlantic to enjoy the sun for the winter season between Florida, the Bahamas and The Eastern Caribbean islands.
