large spa pool on the yacht’s main aft deck. Note the four Ls etched into the glass that makes up part of the stainless-steel handrails. QUATTROELLE IS CERTAINLY NOT THE BIGGEST LÜRSSEN, nor is she the smallest, but she may well be the sweetest. The name means “four Ls” in Italian, and in the case of their new 86-meter (282foot) superyacht delivered earlier this year, the Ls stand for life, love, liberty and luxury, although not necessarily in that order. The four-L logo appears throughout the yacht—on the bow, the exhaust stack, the aft dining table and inlaid into the main lobby and...

The owner’s suite on the upper deck features a sideopening door to access the private terrace forward. I had a good look at Quattroelle’s exterior lines from the 33-foot (10-meter) Super Indios day tender (one of two tenders supplied by Colombo Boats in Italy and custom designed by Nuvolari Lenard) as I was ferried out from the marina in Antibes on the French Riviera to the yacht anchored offshore. Quattroelle is Nuvolari Lenard’s first collaboration with Lürssen, having worked on similar-size projects with Oceanco, arguably Lürssen’s main competitor in the 260- to 295-foot (80- to...

then redesign them by hand back into the computer program two or three times, which means the designers can spend up to six months developing the CAD renderings. “You could say it’s like music,” he says. “Our designs are played and recorded analogically and then digitally remastered.” Beyond the innovative exterior styling, it is the interior design of Quattroelle that best highlights the quality that results from German excellence, combined with Italian flair for design. Valentina Zannier is a junior partner in Nuvolari Lenard and the designer responsible for the interior concept. While a...

the spa pool with its infinity glass wall for uninterrupted sea views and surrounding sun beds. BOTTOM: the 12-person dining table on the main aft deck. LEFT AND BELOW: ceiling in the main salon and the immense Murano glass chandelier, supplied by Venini in Venice, over the dining table. More subtle organic forms appear in the joinery of the low tables and cabinet facades. Scenes from nature—birds, fish, blossoms—are another motif, reflected in the glass starfish faucets in the bathrooms or the champagne leaf (oxidized stainless steel) figures of birds perched on branches impressed into the...

appropriate that Juliette drinks a bit more fuel than the other engine,” he jokes). With their HUG particulate filters and soot burners to ensure low engine exhaust emissions, Millar is constantly tinkering with the 2,680-horsepower Caterpillar engines to improve performance. Just days prior to our visit, the yacht had transferred from Monaco to Antibes at a top speed of 18.4 knots after Millar had modified the fuel injector settings—more than a knot faster than her contractual top speed. Apart from being pretty, the engine room is eminently practical with easy access to equipment for...
