Repeating the process with Enzo

Moran Yacht & Ship sold Enzo in 2018 to a repeat client who commissioned the custom vessel. This came about, following the success of the 86m Quattroelle which involved the same teams and buyer.

Project Enzo marks the second collaboration between Lürssen and the award-winning German design firm Nuvolari Lenard. The aforementioned Quattroelle was their first joint venture in 2013. Whereas Redwood, a 142m superyacht is the third and most recent collaboration. Redwood is currently under construction in Lürssen’s German shipyard.

A vessel to promote good health

Lürssen and Nuvolari Lenard were tasked with creating a family-focused superyacht with a strong sense of health and wellness. With this in mind, the inclusion of a large gym on the skylounge deck and a comfortable wellness area on the lower deck are two of many ways this was achieved.

Visually, Enzo was inspired by the sleek elegance of supercars such as Ferrari’s LaFerrari. The vessel’s “design language is all about connecting her six decks” making it seamless and “into one whole” says Dan Lenard, Enzo’s co-designer. This design philosophy works perfectly with the client’s vision for a simple and meditative space that encourages maximum wellbeing.

The superyacht makes use of helpful technology, such as a dynamic positioning system which helps keep position in the water without the need for anchoring. In order to eliminate unnecessary electrical usage on board and reduce environmental impact, the gensets have a heat recovery system. The onboard pool is able to use this extra heat to keep at a warm temperature.
