Written by Charl van Rooy

Formerly known as project Opus, the identity of 142-metre Lürssen superyacht Nord has finally been revealed as the new build project embarked on another sea trial in Germany. The vessel was cruising the Baltic Sea with her official name sign visible for the first time this weekend. Nord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times

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). Motor yacht Nord is managed by owner representatives Moran Yacht & Ship who is overseeing the entire construction and handover process. The yacht is the largest project ever sold by the company.Nord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times

Built to PYC standards, the 10,000+ GT Nord 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.Nord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNord yacht by Lürssen 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.Nord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht TimesNord yacht by Lürssen Photo: Charl van Rooy / SuperYacht Times
