Inside Lürssen’s latest superyacht: on board M/Y TIS

In the notoriously exclusive business of superyachts, Tis marks the largest ever yacht interior that German shipyard Lürssen was able to share with the world. Here we take a rare closer look at the latest 111-meter addition to the global superyacht fleet.


Tis was styled inside and out by British studio Winch Design and features a curved superstructure that contrasts with the straight lines of her decks.

The Main Staircase

Some of the spaces rival Versailles for elegance, with Louis XIV to XVIII-inspired furniture on the main deck and carpet patterns mimicking those of the era from Parisian salons.

Owner's Deck Saloon

The furniture includes antiques from the owners’ collection and pieces made to match them by the original French suppliers.

The Dining Table

The three chandeliers above the dining table are custom made by Czech crystal specialist Preciosa.

The Outdoor Cinema

The helipad on board Tis doubles as an outdoor cinema or dance floor when not in use.

The Indoor Cinema

When the weather is sour, Tis's guests always have the option of retreating below decks and reclining in comfort in the yacht's second, indoor cinema.

The Spa

The relaxation area at the center of the spa on the bridge deck has a hand-painted bas-relief lemon grove on the domed ceiling. There is also a gym, hammam, beauty salon, and massage room on this deck.

The Staircase

The design theme was inspired by the owners' favorite places, including Provence, Tuscany, New York, London, Morocco, South East Asia and a Russian dacha.

The Stair Case

The central stairs, with handrails in gilded wrought iron, wind up through an atrium soaring 15 meters.

The main center of circulation comprises this sweeping spiral staircase.

The Lift

The adjacent glass lift is a Beaux-Arts gem complete with a little velvet seat for the weary.

The Master Bedroom

The master bedroom sits on the owners' deck, where ceiling height stretches to three meters. There are two fixed balconies and a terrace, plus a galley, hair salon/massage room, and sitting area that overlooks the main saloon below.

The Guest Accommodation

Each guest accommodation is named after a different favorite city or region frequented by the owners, including New York, Provence, Paris (pictured), and London.

The Tearoom

Not all spaces onboard are overwhelming in their proportions. The intimate tea room, forward on the top deck, is just one example of how going small can create a cozy vibe while still remaining elegant. The hand-painted panels were created by DKT Artworks.

The All Fresco Dining Table

Tis'_s The outdoor dining area seats a total of 19 guests.

The Stern

The 'mahogany' trim on her stern is faux-painted steel. Beyond is the comprehensive beach club, "which [the owners] wanted to create a sense of welcome for guests", says Andrew Winch, the yacht's designer.

The Beach Club

The beach club features mahogany paneling, sofas, a dining or games table and a full bar, as well as large screens for watching sports.
