The New "M/Y Kismet" Completes Sea Trials

Project Global, soon to be named "Kismet" went on sea trials for three days last month. She measures 95m (312ft) and is built for a repeat and very experienced client, who up graded from his former 68m (223ft) Lurssen megayacht which was also previously named Kismet.

Under optimal weather conditions, functional tests such as the propulsion plant, pump jet, trials of the thruster, steering system, tests of the cooling, lubrication and fuel system as well as the freshwater treatment units were carried out, as well as the smoke test in the engine room and the blackout tests The main engines were fine tuned as were the stabilizers together with the trials for the emergency and zero speed functions.

The manoeuvring tests were executed to full satisfaction and all other tests carried out on board achieved the expected results. "She is an extraordinarily quiet yacht with no vibrations", comments the technical team, much to the pleasure of the owner.

She is now back in the yard with the final few projects being finished off before her delivery this month.
