Nuvolari-Lenard is releasing new design information about Project Redwood, a 139-metre (456-foot) motor yacht, for which the Venice-based yacht design studio is working on the vessel’s concept, exterior and interior design.
Project Redwood will be Passenger Yacht Code compliant and is being built with a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure.
Nuvolari-Lenard confirms that the superyacht will have the capability for landing two helicopters on the decks. It will carry a fleet of tenders for a range of purposes, including a number of very large tenders of 15 metres (50 feet).
For activity enthusiasts, there will be a sports and diving centre located on the lower decks, as well as a large swimming pool, partially protected from the elements. Once delivered, Project Redwood will have efficient, long-range cruising capabilities for independent global exploration.
The superyacht is currently under construction at Lürssen’s facilities in Bremen, and the design studio is collaborating with the same owner’s representatives and build team from Moran Yacht & Ship with which it worked on 88-metre M/Y Quatroelle, delivered in 2013.
Project Redwood is expected to be delivered to its owner in 2019.
Nuvolari-Lenard is one of the most active and largest yacht design studios in the world. Founded in 1992, the company has designed dozens of high-profile superyachts and won numerous industry awards for its ground-breaking design work. In 2016, the cumulative length of yachts delivered that the Nuvolari-Lenard studio designed was 960 metres. The cumulative length of yachts currently under construction that have been designed by Nuvolari-Lenard is in excess of a kilometre.
The studio is run by Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard. A qualified naval architect and mechanical engineer, Nuvolari is primarily responsible for exterior design and Lenard creates the company’s interior designs. Nuvolari-Lenard’s Interior Design Department is led by Partner Valentina Zannier, who runs the studio’s showroom, which acts as a living space for the company’s designers and owners to “build up” the interior of their future yachts, selecting from a large variety of fabrics, materials, wood samples and furniture. The Design Centre where Nuvolari-Lenard is located is in Scorzé, near Venice; it is home to many innovative designers and architects.
Nuvolari-Lenard is known for its timeless yet visionary design style that sees its iconic projects continue to be admired and successful on the brokerage market for many years, and even decades, after delivery. The studio is considered a trendsetter when it comes to its pioneering work.
Nuvolari-Lenard is renowned and highly awarded for its work on custom superyachts, but it also has a number of ongoing successful partnerships with production yacht builders. As well as being active in the yachting sector, Nuvolari-Lenard also designs interiors for private aircraft and residential properties, including turnkey projects.
