Nauta Yachts has commented on the launch of superyacht Azzam, the largest motor yacht in the world, with exterior design and styling by Nauta Yachts, and built by Lürssen. The yacht was launched Friday at the Lürssen yard in Germany.
Nauta CEO Mario Pedol states: "Seven years ago we began to navigate in the wide ocean of superyacht design. We were lucky to start with a commission for an 80 metre motor yacht with moderate volumes and above all the possibility to open large glass surfaces on the superstructure of each deck. We called this project Light with the double meaning of brightness and lightness".
"When we were then called in to participate in the design and exterior styling of Azzam we immediately realized that this project would be one of the most demanding of our careers. The brief was strict and challenging in terms of dimensions, performance and technology. At the same time we were pleased to note that the Client’s brief was not calling for large volumes in relation to the overall length. This would give us the possibility to express our vision of balance between airiness and light on a larger scale. Our lines could stay neat and essential, one of the hallmarks of Nauta Yachts, without overflow, redundancy and massive volumes".
