In the past year, we have worked
hard at the shipyard to develop a brand new top model. The 17,05-metre
yacht is the largest Super Lauwersmeer in more than 50 years of our
shipyard's existence. As befits a top model, ‘Project 54’ is brimming
with innovation, including a revolutionary new development.
At Super Lauwersmeer, 'enjoying the water, but with all the
comforts of home' is anchored in our DNA. As a yacht builder, we are
masters at turning your water sport dreams into reality. Customisation
in top quality is the standard. By listening carefully to our customers
and building dream yachts together with them, an increasingly strong
image of a new member of the Super Lauwersmeer family has emerged over
the past few years.
Together with yacht architect Arnold de Ruyter,
shipyard owner Louis Jousma worked on the concept. He and his brother
Bastiaan have been at the helm of this shipyard for two decades, which
was established in 1969. Unique to Super Lauwersmeer is that the
brothers build everything themselves. This has earned them much praise
from the international media and expert juries. The design is
recognisably Super Lauwersmeer, but clearly from the next generation.
'With Project 54, we listened carefully to
our customers and looked at recent developments in yacht building and
beyond,' says Louis Jousma. ‘People are becoming accustomed to more
luxury and comfort at home, but also when they are on holiday. We are
now translating that into a new top model,’ adds Bastiaan.
'Unique to Project 54 is her layout that combines
the best of an aft cabin yacht and an open cockpit yacht. This includes a
very unique feature, but we will tell you more about that later', says
Revolutionary underwater hull
What the shipyard does want
to say about the model is that it has a brand new underwater hull
developed in collaboration with Van Oossanen. Thanks to this unique
underwater hull, ‘Project 54’ can sail faster but also more
economically, without the need for huge engines. The concept is
somewhere between a displacement yacht and a planing yacht and is built
of steel. 'It is truly a revolution in yacht building. Something that
has never been done before in this segment,' says Louis, who is
responsible for technical development at Super Lauwersmeer. 'With
Project 54, it is possible to overtake a cargo ship without pulling a
huge stern wave,' he continues.
Super Lauwersmeer has already sold
two ‘Project 54's; based on the blueprints. The construction of the ship
has also started. Next year, the first ship will be launched. Until
then, Super Lauwersmeer will reveal increasingly more details about,
what they are calling, ‘their most revolutionary model ever’. In the
run-up to the launch, the definitive name of the top model will also be
