After her launch in July, the 142-metre Lürssen Opus has embarked on sea trials this week where the Nuvolari Lenard-designed superyacht is being put through her paces on the North Sea. SuperYacht Times rendezvoused with Opus at sea today to bring you these first close up scenes of 2020’s most anticipated motor yacht. View more photos of project Opus here.

The complete design of the project is the work of Nuvolari Lenard from Italy, the same studio behind the two other Lürssen projects Quottrelle (2013) and Testarossa (2022). Project Opus is managed by owner representatives Moran Yacht & Ship who is overseeing the entire construction process. The yacht is the largest project ever sold by the company.

Built to PYC standards, the 10,000+ GT Opus can accommodate up to 36 guests in 20 cabins with guest areas spread across the yacht's six decks. "She is feature-rich with high-end amenities to delight and cater to every imaginable whim," commented Moran Yacht & Ship.Opus yacht by Lürssen sea trialsPhoto: Tom van Oossanen / SuperYacht TimesOpus yacht by Lürssen sea trialsPhoto: Tom van Oossanen / SuperYacht TimesOpus yacht by Lürssen sea trialsPhoto: Tom van Oossanen / SuperYacht Times

On bridge deck level, a large helicopter landing deck aft with fold-down side platforms provide shelter for the yacht’s helicopter that can be stowed away in a retractable hangar that slides neatly into the superstructure when not in use. A large sports and diving centre on the lower deck, oversized swimming pool on the main deck and a fleet of custom tenders are just some of the other features on board this impressive vessel.Opus yacht by Lürssen sea trialsPhoto: Tom van Oossanen / SuperYacht TimesOpus yacht by Lürssen sea trialsPhoto: Tom van Oossanen / SuperYacht Times
