Project SHU powered by Imperial


Following her successful sea trials in the North Sea during March and May 2018, Imperial is proud to announce the future delivery of PROJECT SHU (136m) during this autumn 2018, in collaboration with the reputed German shipyard Lürssen. Showcasing a very stylish and impressive exterior design from the creative mind of Espen Øino, and luxury interior from Mark Berryman, PROJECT SHU was one of the most secret superyacht projects under construction at Lürssen. Imperial acted as Broker, Owner’s Representative and Build Supervisor, and will now act as Operational Manager for the vessel. PROJECT SHU boasts a most elegant and graceful exterior design while ensuring that, despite her massive volume, she maintains her striking looks. She also has a calm and spacious interior feel which has been beautifully crafted with the use of soft neutral tones and tactile finishes. The first figures to be unveiled are impressive: 136m length, 20.5m beam, 2 helipads with D-Values of 18m and 14m (located respectively on sun deck aft and bridge deck) able to accommodate the biggest aircraft currently on the market, or to be built. The balance and proportion of the yacht’s profile allows for generous exterior decks that offer a range of options for owners and guests to enjoy, from sun-drenched and open entertainment areas, to more sheltered and intimate formal spaces. A special feature is the enormous swimming pool, which runs transversely on main deck aft. Further highlights are the sea terraces and platforms, which allow for easy water access for water sports as well as relaxation. “PROJECT SHU represents a major milestone for Imperial.” Says Julia Stewart, Imperial Director “Being involved in impressive projects like these shows our capacity and experience in superyacht and megayacht management, with regular deliveries of 80m+ projects supervised and operated by our team since 2015. Our strong and very dynamic links with Lürssen, Espen Øino and Mark Berryman helped to achieve one of the most impressive superyachts of the next decade” Shipyard Managing Partner Peter Lürssen says: "SHU fulfils the requests of a very experienced owner in an exceptional way. The owner’s input regarding all aspects of the yacht’s design was clear, strong and exacting. Building SHU was a significant challenge and we are very proud of this achievement. She represents another remarkable milestone in our history. Once again, we have had the great pleasure of working with the Imperial team to create a truly wonderful yacht with many new and unique features.” The delivery of this striking project is scheduled for this autumn 2018.
