71M/232'11" - LURSSEN - 2002/2019

When SKAT was delivered in 2002, her combination of dramatic styling and total honesty made her the most talked-about launch of the year.

Designed by renowned naval architect Espen Oeino, and indeed perhaps the best example of Oeino’s work, her exterior is a combination of angles and sharp edges. Her interior by Marco Zanini is free of superfluous lines and is therefore an excellent example of minimalism.
