Lürssen’s biggest refit to date
The project began at the end of March 2019 and it is Lürssen’s biggest refit to date. Modifications to both the interior and the exterior of the 110m (360.8 ft) Kaos (formely known as Jubilee) has been made. Burgess’s new construction team acted as owner’s representative in the project.
“We are very satisfied that we achieved what we set out to do,” comments York Ilgner, director Lürssen Yacht Refit. “It was a complex refit that was challenging at times, but it has been very successful.”
Integration of the yacht’s original design and new designs of the exterior modifications on the main deck and bridge deck were completed by its former interior designer, Sam Sorgiovanni. For the interior design, the Owners have selected Reymond Langton Design to redesign existing spaces as well as creating new ones.
Ed Beckett from Burgess says “The owners were heavily involved in every aspect of the project”. He also commented that this project was extremely demanding due to the timing and quality expectations, but the result is exceptional and could only be achieved with great teamwork.
“What you see from outside already looks significant, but the majority of the work was done on the interior”, continues Thomas Dapp, the project manager. “Overall, we renewed 1,500 square metres of interior spaces.”
History of Kaos
Kaos, formerly Jubilee, is the design work of Lobanov Design and Sam Sorgiovanni who are responsible for its original exterior and interior designs respectively. The vessel’s naval architecture was done by Azure Yacht Design & Naval Architecture. Jubilee was launched at Oceanco in 2017. It is the largest yacht ever built at Oceanco, and also in the Netherlands. Its ownership was changed in the largest superyacht brokerage sale in 2018.
