Lürssen has delivered the 115m/377ft luxury mega yacht APHO, which has been formerly known as Project ENZO. The name ‘Apho’ means ‘Grand Lady’ in Mandarin Chinese – a very well suited name for a superyacht of this calibre.
Built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, mega yacht AHPO spans six decks and has a volume of 5,000 GT. The naval architecture was completed by the shipyard, while Nuvolari Lenard completed both her interior and exterior styling.
She was signed for in September 2018 by a repeat Lürssen client who had previously owned a vessel designed by Nuvolari Lenard. The launch took place in June 2021 with sea trials taking place in the North Sea earlier in November.
The family-focused design has entertainment and wellness features including a lower deck spa and a comprehensive gym on the same deck as the sky lounge, and the accommodation sleeps up to 14 guests across 7 en-suite cabins, which includes a spacious Master suite.
Cutting-edge engineering provides plenty of additional unseen benefits for guests, such as a heat recovery system applied to the generators that heat the swimming pool, and a Dynamic Positioning System (DPS) to hold a place without dropping anchor.
Megayacht AHPO is sure to be a presence in the cruising grounds she visits the world over, providing her Owner and guests with an exceptional experience.
