After an outfitting period that lasted just over 12 months, the highly-anticipated 142m Lürssen project Opus launched outside Bremen today.

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, Opus can accommodate up to 36 guests in 20 cabins with luxury guests 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.Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
Opus’ naval-inspired bow shape and bridge deck overhangs lend the yacht an aggressive demeanour when viewed from ahead, with an elaborate mast design that carries all the necessary communication and navigational equipment she will need on her travels. The sleek aft-sloping superstructure elegantly hides the yacht's spacious volume that measures over 10,000 GT. Photo: Charl van Rooy / 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. Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
