Lürssen shipyard delivers Project Opus, the 141.6-metre Nord

On the 19th of February 2021 the 141.6-metre Nord (previously Project Opus) left the Lürssen shipyard and began her maiden voyage.

Responsible for her stunning exterior and interior design is the Italian design studio Nuvolari-Lenard, who have given Nord her striking appearance with a bow design never before seen on a yacht. “Nord was designed with one idea in mind: she must cause strong emotions in every observer, not only through her sheer size, but with the design itself. No one should be left indifferent,” says Dan Lennard.

“Whether you like the design or not, it must strike you. Nord is a serious ship first and foremost, but she also transcends the traditional language of yacht design. She is a warship wearing a tuxedo, an explorer with the elegance of a gentleman’s yacht. We have entered a new direction in serious yacht design.” 

“At Lürssen, we believe that to build a yacht it is vital to work as a team, and to execute such a comprehensive project, an excellent team is necessary,” says Managing Partner, Peter Lürssen. 

In this case, the team consisted of the design team from Nuvolari-Lenard, Moran Yacht & Ship who supervised the build on behalf of the Owner, and, of course, the project team from Lürssen. “We are looking forward to Nord finding her place amongst her peers as a remarkable statement in large yacht construction, based on a strong design and expert engineering skills.”Lürssen shipyard delivers Project Opus, the 141.6-metre NordLürssen shipyard delivers Project Opus, the 141.6-metre Nord

Moran Yacht & Ship brought in their vast spectrum of experience and consolidated knowledge. Moran says: “We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Owner of Nord on the delivery of his new vessel. Additionally, we would like to thank the workers of the Lürssen shipyard, as well as the design and build team on this tremendous accomplishment.”Lürssen shipyard delivers Project Opus, the 141.6-metre NordLürssen shipyard delivers Project Opus, the 141.6-metre Nord
