    This motor yacht is called ENIGMA and she is a 244.45 ft / 74.50 m Blohm & Voss Yacht built in 1991. She used to be called Eco and Katana.

    ENIGMA is a famous motor yacht due to her unique almost frigate style design and because she has been one of the large and fast motor yachts for a very long time.

    ENIGMA was designed by Martin Francis and built (by the German shipyard Blohm & Voss) for the Mexican magnate Emilio Azcarraga. The yacht was first called ECO and back in 1998 she was purchased by American Oracle boss Larry Ellison.

    Mr. Ellison renamed her KATANA, a Japanese name, and she became synonymous with yacht racing events such as the America’s Cup.

    Two major upgrades have been completed at Lürssen over the years – both overseen by Martin Francis.

    She is still a favourite yacht for many. KATANA is powered by two 3728kW Deutz MWM BV 16M628 diesels and one gas turbine 13795kW GE LM1600.
