The America’s Cup is deemed to be the oldest trophy tournament at international levels when it comes to sailing.
This competition will have six teams fighting it out at Great Sound region of Bermuda for a trophy that is deemed a hard and challenging victory. For those who have followed the 2015 tournament will know that teams have battled it out for the 34th
series that had the last round in the chilling waters of Fukuoka in Japan in the month of November. The British team led by Sir Ben Ainslie took the trophy that was a monumental win for Britain.
The highlight of the series is the catamarans that are used to sail. Swift vessels that have a majestic foiling design; these are fast vessels that make competition fierce and close.

Recently, Lurssen Yachts relished hundred and foety years of producing magnificent custom yachts at 7 yards in Germany’s northern part. It takes state-of-the-art facilities as well as a greatly skilled workforce of 1800 to offer tis type of award winning beauties as Peloris, Limitless, Rising Sun, Dilbar and Ice. Lurssen’s newest launches are Omar, Dilbar III and Orchid. And, Kismet is “the cat’s meow!”
While not the biggest yacht made by Lurssen, Kismet ranks at 40th spot in the world’s biggest yachts and carries the record for the biggest yacht to dock at the Bahia Mar. During her come back visit to the South Florida, concurring with the very recent Miami Boat Show, Kismet’s quayside place overshadowed several of the buildings in downtown Miami. Even though Kismet really pushes the super yacht language into ‘gigayacht’ territory, Lurssen’s largest launch goes to Azzam; the largest yacht in the world at 180 meters and it brags of leading the pack at thirty knots.
Two important points that top her list of superlatives – Lurssen attained a great engineering feat and America is really a great country to nurture this class of economic enterprise.
While it is in the policy of YachtForums to not reveal owners unless it has been broadcast publicly somewhere else. With a 4 foot jaguar roosted on the bowsprit, Kismet’s master either bags it, owns it, or the procedure of voiding by way of internet search leads a person to Shahid Kahn.
