The yacht is to be built at Lurssen yachts and is named Testarossa. We think this is the new yacht for Khan. We think so based on the timing and the color scheme of the new project.

The text of a press release by Moran Yachts. “Moran Yacht & Ship is delighted to announce the sale of another new build. The 380' (116m) Lurssen Project TESTAROSSA.



This exciting and cutting-edge project is being built for a repeat client. She is currently under construction at the Lurssen shipyard in Germany. This 116 meter vessel will have an internal volume of 5,000 GT.



Nuvolari Lenard will provide the creative and eye-catching design. For both the interior and exterior of the yacht.



Moran Yacht & Ship negotiated the build contract and compiled the technical specification. Moran will oversee her complete construction. We look forward to a delivery in 2022.
