The delivery news follows the reveal of Kismet‘s computer-rendered interiors by her central agency for charter, Cecil WrightKismet charters for €3,000,000 per week plus expenses.

Interiors have been described as a “beautiful, bespoke homage to the owner’s lifestyle” by the yard. The renderings show a dramatic theme, with an elaborate staircase that appears to have the same video walls as the original Kismet.  Fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling glass and intricate paint and marble detailing also feature throughout. 

Speaking about her entrance on the charter market, Chris Cecil-Wright said: “Having sold the previous Kismet in September last year, we are delighted to be able to continue our relationship with her owner as the central agent for charter for his stunning new vessel.”

The charter yacht features accommodation for 12 guests in up to nine cabins. The crew quarters, meanwhile, will accommodate a staff of 40. Other key details include a beam of 17.8 metres, creating “extraordinary volumes” and “sleek and elegant lines”, according to the yard.

Standout features include a helipad, beauty salon, spa, sauna, swimming pool, indoor and outdoor cinema, dance floor, gym and elevator. There will also be ample room for a selection of tenders and toys including a sailing dinghy, Sea Bobs, sea scooters, windsurfers and a submarine.

Kismet is one of the largest superyachts under construction in the world. She was sold by Moran Yacht & Ship in 2019, with the brokerage also managing the build throughout construction, including writing the technical specifications and negotiating the interior costs.

According to BOATPro, Lürssen has 12 yachts currently in build or on order. This includes the 107-metre explorer Project Icecap which, once delivered, will rank in the top 30 Lürssen yachts by size. Kismet first hit the water on August 11 at Rendsburg, following the drydock flooding on 10 August.
