M/Y Global (ex Kismet) Completes Refit


Lurssen has completed the refit of M/Y. Global, formerly known as Kismet. She left the shipyard at the end of June and is now cruising in the Mediterranean with her new owners for the summer season.

The hull has been given a beautiful new lease of life with a stunning light grey colour that Tim Morley describes as "a great credit to Lurssen’s refit team and the contractors who undertook the work". Her helicopter deck that incorporates lighting and hinged railings has been enhanced and is now significantly larger and safer for regular helicopter operations.

Espen Oeino was commissioned to draw the new hull lines, maintaining the DNA of the original design, and the owner is delighted with the result. Minor changes have also been made in the interior, in accordance with the new owner's taste and specifications. Kismet was originally delivered in 2007 and measures in at a length of 68m (223ft).

Morley Yachts is the owner's representative and Hill Robinson supervised the refit. She has already been spotted when she left the shipyard as well as a few days later when she arrived in Gibraltar, seen in the picture below.
