Lürssen's Sunflower under sea trials

German ship photographer Thomas Rutka took some great photos of the 155m Lürssen Sunflower while under trials in Northern Germany last Tuesday.


The hull of Sunflower was constructed by SSW in Bremerhaven, who recently also completed the hull for another 110m Lürssen yacht, and she was completed by Lürssen in Bremen. It's still a mystery who designed the yacht....

The final name of the yacht, Sunflower is just a project name, will be revealed after delivery and this is not a first for Lürssen. The 138m Lürssen Al Salamah left her building dock under the name Mipos (which stands for Mission Impossible, referring to the short build time and the size of the yacht).

Sunflower is with her 155m the World's second largest yacht, after the 162m Dubai. More photos of Sunflower and Dubai can be found on Yacht-Images.com.
