Industry news

By Katia Damborsky  9 July 2020

Once delivered later this year, the 142m (465') superyacht OPUS will become the 10th largest yacht in the world. 

Set to hit the water in the next few days, Lurssen's 142m gigayacht Project OPUS rolled out of the shed yesterday in Lemwerder. It comes after the yacht's bare hull was officially launched last year.

As ever, the German yard has kept details about their latest superyacht under wraps; however it's known that she features interior and exterior design by Italian studio Nuvolari Lenard, and is expected to have a very unique bow. 

In terms of LOA, the 9,250 GT superyacht is Lurssen's fifth largest yacht to date. She will become the 10th largest yacht in the world when she sees delivery, knocking 141m (463') motor yacht YAS from the Top 10.

The motor yacht is known as both Project OPUS and Project Redwood, and her official name has not yet been disclosed. Unconfirmed social media reports suggest she may be called 'Lady M'; however this has not been verified. 

Project OPUS will be PYC compliant and have a range of on-board features including a sports and diving centre on the lower deck, a spacious swimming pool, two helipads and a fleet of tenders measuring up to 15 metres.

Lurssen has been particularly busy recently, with their 140m (459'4) motor yacht SCHEHERAZADE delivered in the last few weeks and 87m (285'5) motor yacht AVANTAGE setting off on sea trials around the same time. 

YachtCharterFleet was the first news organization to break the exclusive story on the names of both of these yachts; so keep an eye on our site for more details about OPUS.
