Lürssen Superyacht Nord in the Maldives

The superyacht Nord has been seen cruising in the Maldives since last December. The yacht was located anchored in the famous Baa Atoll surrounded by world-leading luxury resorts and home to the UNESCO Biosphere reserve Hanifaru Bay. It was also seen in Gn. Fuvahmulah – a worldwide famous location to dive with majestic tiger sharks. 

It is one of the largest superyachts in the fleet at 10,154 GT, built at the German shipyard Lürssen in Bremen with Moran Yacht & Ship overseeing her build. 

Formerly known as Project Opus, the superyacht was designed inside and out by the Italian studio Nuvolari Lenard. The warship-style vessel encompasses 6 decks, and can accommodate up to 36 guests across 20 cabins. 

On bridge deck level, a large helicopter landing deck aft with fold-down side platforms provides shelter for Nord’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 center on the lower deck, an oversized swimming pool on the main deck, and a fleet of custom tenders are just some of the other features onboard this impressive vessel.
