Previously known as Project 1601, 90-metre Norn left Lürssen’s Vegesack shipyard on her maiden voyage.

Built for an experienced boating couple who previously owned the 70-metre Lürssen, SKAT for 20 years, Norn has a beam of 14.7-metres, volume of 3491 GT and is ranked as the 114th largest yacht in the world.

According to their brief, they required top-notch design and engineering as well as seagoing comfort for their family. For the exterior, they once again trusted designer Espen Øino, who gave the yacht “a striking design with extraordinary features, dominated by flat surfaces, straight lines and angular corners”, according to the yard.

The crispness of the exterior styling suggests a geometrical precision that permeates every facet of the yacht. Her interior was designed by Dölker + Voges and echoes the same design themes as her exterior. Cornelsen & Partner was acting as Project Manager in the owners’ team throughout the construction process.


As with all Lürssen superyachts, Norn is equipped with state-of-the art technology and engineering systems, including zero-speed stabilisers, outdoor cinema and a rising pool floor with dance-floor illumination.

A dynamic positioning system enables electronic anchoring in sensitive and remote areas, protecting the seabed and allowing for safe mooring regardless of water depth.

Other projects currently underway at Lürssen include the 122-metre Project Jag, due for delivery in 2023, and 142-metre Project Alibaba, anticipated for 2025 delivery.
