Lürssen has launched its latest superyacht project, Enzo, a 377-ft custom commission for a repeat client. The superyacht was seen departing Lürssen’s renowned shipyard in Northern Germany for open seas last week.
Enzo’s sleek exterior design elements are a trademark of the architectural powerhouse Nuvolari-Lenard, whilst the interior has been fitted according to the client’s desire for the vessel to function as a family-friendly space that prioritizes health and wellness.
Minimizing environmental impact was also a priority, meaning that the yacht incorporates many of Lürssen’s pioneering fuel-saving engineering systems that work together to reduce emissions and enable a degree of self-sufficiency. As a partner of the Blue Marine Foundation, Lürssen’s commitment to ocean restoration and the promotion of marine biodiversity is reflected in its most recent projects, which feature innovations such as compact silencers with SCR filters that aim to drastically reduce soot and noise emissions. This latest creation is no exception, with a heat recovery system to lower electrical power and emissions and electronic mooring in delicate areas of the seabed to ensure that everyday life aboard the Enzo is green and guilt-free.

As the lead designers on the project, Nuvolari-Lenard demonstrated their ability to maintain eco-friendly technologies without compromising on design through their work on Oceanco’s Black Pearl, released in 2018. Three distinctive black masts sit atop its hull to support the 347-ft sailing yacht and work to reduce energy requirements, with the Enzo’s exterior certainly recalling this bold design.
The six decks connect smoothly and purposefully in alignment with the client’s request to focus on health and wellness. Two of the decks are devoted to sport and other activities, with the sky lounge deck housing an extensive gym and the lower serving as an at-home wellness retreat. The suite duplexes and family-oriented interior guarantee that guests can travel safely and comfortably during any voyage.

“Enzo’s design language is all about connecting her six decks – both the naval and tech elements with the living space – into one whole,” says Dan Lenard, co-designer. “Her three decks integrated into the high bow guarantee sea-keeping in true ocean conditions, while also allowing her an innovative full-beam owner suite duplex.”
A family-run business since its founding in 1875, Lürssen’s unveiling of project Enzo follows a long line of ambitious vessels that have been launched from their numerous shipyards along Germany’s coastline in recent years. This year has also seen the release of project Opus, a 465ft superyacht known as Nord that now sits alongside the world’s largest superyachts.
