Lurssen Raya Overview
The German shipyard is keeping the engine specifications of the Raya (ex. Ona, ex. Dilbar), somewhat similar to the Pelorus, under wraps. All that is known is that she is capable of reaching a speed of 21 knots. One of the most important advantages of the boat is its sustainability: Lürssen emphasizes that great attention has been paid to sustainability technologies. For example, the exhaust gases from the heat engines are cleaned by means of particulate filters. The exterior design was done by the recognized master craftsman Tim Heywood. The author of the interior trim and design is Alberto Pinto. Ona was the property ofAlisher Usmanov, a Russian businessman of Uzbek descent who owns a fortune of $7.2 billion, ranking 14th on the list of Russia's richest people. In September 2018, it was sold, reportedly to a man from Central Asia, and renamed Raya. The asking price for it was 250 million euros.
