Flying Fox: The Epitome of Yachting Luxury!

🌐 Important Notice: 🚫 FLYING FOX is NOT available for Charter or Sale.

🌟 Project Shu’s Majestic Transformation into Flying Fox: In the annals of maritime splendor, the unveiling of Project Shu marked a significant chapter. This 136-meter Lürssen new build, delivered in March 2019, emerged as the resplendent Flying Fox. A behemoth in the yachting world, Flying Fox claimed the prestigious title of the 14th largest yacht globally. Setting sail from Germany to Stavanger, Norway, the vessel showcases its prowess on the open seas. Notably, the moniker Flying Fox was previously borne by a 74-meter Nobiskrug.

Design Marvels by Espen Oeino and Mark Berryman: Crafted with an exterior visioned by the renowned Espen Oeino and interiors curated by the talented Mark Berryman, Flying Fox is a symphony of design brilliance. Two helipads grace its decks, accommodating even the most substantial helicopters. A star feature is the expansive swimming pool positioned aft of the main deck, complemented by large sea terraces and swim platforms, creating an irresistible allure for watersports enthusiasts.

🛳️ Dimensions and Construction Excellence: Flying Fox boasts a displacement steel hull and an aluminum superstructure with teak decks, adhering to Lloyds Register PYC classification society rules. With an impressive beam of 20.5 meters and an estimated 9,100 gross tonnage, this maritime masterpiece stands tall as a testament to engineering excellence.

🌊 Amenities Fit for Royalty: Indulgence knows no bounds on Flying Fox, with amenities rivaling those of a luxury resort. Air conditioning, a beach club, beauty room, helicopter landing pad, on-deck Jacuzzi, massage room, swimming platform, tender garage, underwater lights, and a splendid swimming pool create an atmosphere of opulence unparalleled on the open waters.

🏰 Interior Symphony by Mark Berryman: Mark Berryman’s interior design, characterized by neutral tones and a spacious ambiance, is a testament to refined luxury. While no interior photos are currently available, Flying Fox is expected to comfortably host at least 24 guests and a crew of 40, ensuring every voyage is a journey into unparalleled comfort.

Strategic Sojourn in Norway: The decision to anchor in Norway holds a financial rationale. By obtaining necessary stamps on various documents in a non-EU port, the shipowner stands to reclaim the 19 percent German VAT. Considering the estimated total cost of the yacht at around €300 million, this VAT reimbursement amounts to a substantial €57 million in savings.

🌌 The Origin of SHU: In a nod to ancient Egyptian mythology, Project Shu draws its name from Shu, one of the primordial gods symbolizing air. As the spouse and counterpart to the goddess Tefnut, Shu occupies a significant place as one of the nine deities of the Heliopolis cosmogony.

Flying Fox – Where Maritime Marvel Meets Unrivaled Luxury! Embark on a journey beyond the ordinary with Flying Fox, a floating masterpiece where every detail whispers the story of yachting opulence. From its grand dimensions to its luxurious interiors, Flying Fox stands as a testament to the artistry of maritime luxury.
