Scheherazade is a very large superyacht, built by Lurssen. She was delivered to her owner in 2020. She is one of the largest yachts in the world.
M/Y Lightning has a length of at least 136 meters. We estimate her displacement at more than 9,000 tons. Update: her volume is actually 10,167 tons. Her maximum speed will probably be above 18 knots.
No designer has been disclosed yet. But she is probably designed by Espen Oeino. Oeino is responsible for most of the recent large yachts.
The interior of the yacht is designed by Zuretti Yacht Design. We guess that she will be able to accommodate at least 18 guests and a crew of 40.
Since she will cruise in Middle East waters, her outside areas are limited. (It is too hot in that region for outdoor entertainment). The focus is on interior space.
Based on the available footage of the luxury yacht, we conclude that her features include a helicopter landing pad, a large pool, a cinema, and several entertainment areas. She also has a drone crashing system, which literally crashes drones from the air.
Price of Scheherazade
It is difficult to assess the value/cost price of the custom-built yacht. It will be quite some amount though. ;-)
We were told her owner is based in the Middle East.
