It's not every day that a new mega-yacht of over 200 feet long is launched, but that's just what occurred a few weeks ago at the Lürssen shipyard in Rendsburg, Norway. While under construction, the vessel in progress was known as Project Niki, but now complete, it's being christened Solandge.
Measuring 85.1 meters (279 feet) from bow to stern and 13.8 m (45 feet) in beam, Solandge ranks as the 62nd largest yacht in the world. Lürssen, for what it's worth, also built the 590-foot Azzam (which launched earlier this year as the largest in the world), and are responsible for many of the world's other largest yachts.
