Lürssen has delivered the 141.6m Nord, which left the builder’s shipyard in late February and began her maiden voyage. Italian studio Nuvolari-Lenard designed the exterior and interior of the yacht, previously known as Project Opus, while Moran Yacht & Ship supervised the build on behalf of the owner.
Peter Lürssen, Managing Partner of Lürssen, said: “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. We are looking forward to Nord finding her place among her peers as a remarkable statement in large yacht construction, based on a strong design and expert engineering skills.”

Nuvolari-Lenard was responsible for Nord’s striking appearance including a bow design never seen before on a yacht.
Dan Lenard said: “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. 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.”
