In 2008 the first luxury yacht won the ‘superyacht of the year award’. In 2013 Kismet was sold by Moran Yacht & Ship. She is now named Global. The Global yacht owner is German millionaire Lars Windhorst. Kismet’s asking price was US$ 115 million.


The yacht is built of steel with an aluminum superstructure. She is powered by 2 Caterpillar diesel engines. Her max speed is 17 knots. Her cruise speed is 12 knots. She has a range of more than 4,500 nm.

Her features include an open fireplace and an oval-shaped swimming pool. There is also a Jacuzzi on the sun deck. The yacht has a large spa and an elevator.

The yacht has a two-deck video wall, made up of 42 individual 140-centimeter monitors. The wall can show how moving artwork, news, films, and games. Kismet won the 2015 World Superyacht Award. Her value is estimated at US$ 200 million.

Beyonce was on the Yacht

In July 2018 Beyonce, Jay-Z and their three children were relaxing on the yacht in Italy.

The Yacht was listed For Sale

In September 2018 MY Kismet was listed for sale at Moran Yachts.

His new Yacht

Around that same time, Moran revealed a new 116 meters project.

The boat 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.

Update: It seems that Testarossa is the new yacht for Michael Lee Chin, the Canadian / Jamaican billionaire. He was also the commissioning owner of the Lurssen Quattroelle. (During the yacht’s launch, Testarossa had a Canadian flag on her bow).

Lurssen Project Gaja

Update 2: We found that the 125 meter Project Gaja is the new Kismet boat. She will be delivered in 2023.

Project Testarossa

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 meters vessel will have an internal volume of 5,000 GT.

Nuvolari Lenard will provide a 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 delivery in 2022.”
