inside the nord yacht

The 141.6-metre 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. 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. The 2021 delivered yacht Nord has implemented an exhaust after treatment system, which consists of the combination of a silencer with a selective catalytic reduction in the same casing, which can achieve a cleaning rate up to 97 % of nitrogen and additional reduction of acoustic noise – a Lürssen development.

EXCLUSIVE: 142m Lurssen superyacht NORD, formerly 'Project Opus', delivered

By Katie Scott   19 February 2021

Lurssen’s 142m/466ft motor yacht NORD , formerly known as Project Opus, has successfully been delivered to her owner. She set off from the German yard this morning on her maiden voyage to Gibraltar. 

Initially known as 'Project Redwood' and then 'Project Opus', megayacht NORD was constructed at the Lurssen  Bremen shipyard and boasts no less than 20 cabins for up to 36 guests.

Officially launched in July 2020, NORD spans over six decks and is one of the largest motor yachts delivered in 2021.

inside the nord yacht

First announced in December 2015, the name NORD was exclusively revealed by YachtCharterFleet and was initially proposed to be a 139m Project. She has since been extended by an additional three metres, allowing for extra amenities onboard.

Sporting immaculate design from Italian studio Nuvolari & Lenard, who previously collaborated with Lurssen on the award-winning 88m/289ft  superyacht QUATTROELLE , the yacht's profile is particularly striking.

One of the most iconic components of her exterior is the subtle nod to the automobile industry; NORD is the first yacht to have her nameplate on the bow, much like a car grill.

inside the nord yacht

NORD showcases her capacious volume of 9,250GT by providing extensive relaxation and lounging areas, as well as indulgent social environments for unforgettable parties.

Featuring a displacement steel hull and aluminium superstructure, with teak decks, NORD has been built in compliance to Lloyds Register PYC classification society rules.

First seen on the move in October 2018, before becoming Project Opus in 2019, she joins the Top 10 of the World's longest yachts alongside 180m (592.7ft) superyacht AZZAM and 156m (511.8ft) DILBAR .

Indicating several unique features onboard the latest Lurssen megayacht, dual helipads, on-deck swimming pools and Jacuzzis are just some key features listed for NORD.

A spacious sports and diving centre accompany storage for tenders up to 15m, and a custom hangar slides in to place within the superstructure when not in use. 

It is currently unknown whether NORD is to be available for  superyacht charters .

A Russian Oligarch’s $500 Million Megayacht Just Mysteriously Arrived in Hong Kong

The lürssen vessel nord is connected to the third-richest man in russia., tori latham, tori latham's most recent stories.

The Nord yacht

Ever since Russia invaded Ukraine earlier this year, authorities have been keeping an eye on the megayachts owned by Russian oligarchs and allies of Vladimir Putin. One such vessel just mysteriously turned up in Hong Kong.

  • Lürssen’s Newest Superyacht Is a 269-Foot Tri-Deck Behemoth

The 465-foot Lürssen vessel in question, which contains two helipads, a cinema and 20 luxury cabins, left Vladivostok on September 27 and was initially headed for the Vietnamese port of Da Nang. However, it soon changed its route to Hong Kong and has been anchored there since Wednesday night, according to Bloomberg. It has also changed its flag from the Cayman Islands to Russia. A spokesperson for Mordashov told the publication that he was currently in Moscow and declined to comment on the yacht’s movement.

Since Putin began his war in Ukraine in February, more than a dozen yachts owned by Russian oligarchs have been seized by Western governments as a form of punishment for the owners having ties to the Russian president. In total, the seized yachts add up to more than $2.25 billion, and others have been immobilized in ports and naval yards across Europe.

The US has even formed a special task force, KleptoCapture, to go after Russian billionaires’ assets. Earlier this year, the unit helped seize Amadea , a $325 million superyacht supposedly owned by the gold tycoon Suleiman Kerimov.

To evade capture, some yacht owners have moved their vessels to the sanction-free waters of Russia and Turkey. But now that Mordashov’s Nord has turned up in Hong Kong, it’s unclear what will happen to it. One thing’s for certain, though: Despite its considerable size, the 465-footer is proving to be quite elusive.

Nord Yacht: An Insider’s Guide

Ian Fortey

The Nord yacht was known as Project OPUS when it was still being built. It is one of the largest yachts in the world and was launched back in 2021. Like many yachts in the last year this was the target of international investigations and sanctions. However, unlike some other vessels, Nord managed to elude authorities and return to Russian waters. As such it has not been seized and no sanctions have been imposed against its owner insofar as the yacht is concerned.

According to reports, the owner was aware that a potential seizure was imminent where the boat was docked in the Seychelles. To avoid sanctions, a staggering $465,000 worth of fuel was pumped into the vessel before it set sail to Vladivostok in Russia. The non-stop journey was undertaken at full speed and covered 6,701 nautical miles which is pretty amazing. In order to make this work, the yacht had to shut off its mandatory location responders to evade notice by authorities.

Since that time, it has ventured out again and has been seen in Hong Kong, South Korea, the Maldives and, in 2023, it returned to the Seychelles.

Nord is one of the most expensive yachts ever built and features a vast array of features and amenities designed to give passengers a full luxury experience at sea.

Who is the Nord Yacht Owner?

inside the nord yacht

The Nord is owned by Russian billionaire Alexei Mordashov (sometimes spelled Alexey Mordashov). Mordashov is the chairman and largest shareholder of Russia’s biggest steel and mining company Severstal. Though there are a number of billionaires in Russia, Mordashov ranks first if his family wealth is included. His fortune is estimated to be around $30 billion. 

How Big is the Nord Yacht?

inside the nord yacht

The Nord is an absolutely massive 466 feet in length, making it one of the largest yachts in the world . The beam of the vessel measures in at 64 feet while the displacement is 9,250 gross tons. It features a 17.7 foot draft and has the capacity to handle up to 36 guests at one time. 

How Fast is the Nord and What Engines Does it Use?

inside the nord yacht

Sources actually don’t agree on the internal working of the Nord. Lurssen, the yacht builder, does list the vessel’s speed at 18 knots which is actually in contrast to what other sources say which come in both higher and lower though they don’t specify cruising or maximum speed.

On the low end, cruising speed is listed at 15 knots. On the high end, maximum speed is listed at 20 knots. But, with Lurssen saying 18 knots, you have to take their word that it’s one or the other making either the 15 or the 20 incorrect.

Also interesting is that there is some disagreement as to whether the yacht has 2 or 4 MTU engines. It is generally agreed, however, that the Nord is working with 4,963hp MTU (20V 4000 M73L) diesel engines.

How Much Did the Nord Yacht Cost?

inside the nord yacht

When the yacht was registered in the Cayman Islands the value was listed at $300 million. However, it’s also believed that this number is a bit of an undervaluation and the actual value of the yacht is somewhere around $500 million. If that higher number is true then the Nord ranks among the top ten most expensive yachts in the whole world.

It’s been estimated that annual running costs to handle all the fuel and crew salaries as well as upkeep and general costs are between $40 million and $50 million. Despite the high costs, the vessel is not a part of any yacht charter fleet and can’t be rented out if you’re in the market for a week on a luxury yacht.

Design and Features of the Yacht Nord

inside the nord yacht

Superyacht Nord was designed by German yacht makers Lurssen back in 2021. The exterior and interior design of the yacht were handled by Italian design studio Nuvolari & Lenard. Like most yachts of its size it has a steel hull, teak decks and an aluminum superstructure. 

It’s been said that the yacht was designed for exploration and long-range cruising. One of the designers said it’s a warship wearing a tuxedo, if that helps give you an idea of what the boat is like. 

The bow is flattered at the front and features a massive nameplate which actually lights up at night. Some Russian billionaires are a bit sheepish about publicity and being seen but Nord wants to be seen and makes sure everyone notices it. Even the choice of paint, avoiding the typical white and going with champagne and deep blue accents plus blue lights, draws attention to every aspect of the yacht. 

Amenities and Features

inside the nord yacht

The motor yacht Nord has a prominent helipad located at the bow of the vessel and a very large pool located aft above the beach club. There’s also a second helipad and even a helicopter hangar on board. The hangar closes over the second helipad which is located on the top deck and is built into the main mast of the vessel.

A total of 36 guests can be accommodated in 20 cabins while there is also room for a crew of 50 on board.  There are two elevators to help navigate the vessel’s six decks as well as some of the standard amenities you’d expect guests to be able to enjoy on a luxury yacht. These include:

  • A fully equipped gym
  • A beauty salon
  • A tender garage which houses several tenders as well as a variety of toys and water vehicles
  • A large beach club
  • Massive dining hall and bar area

No pictures of the interior of the yacht have been made public so, as bold as the exterior looks, the interior details are still mostly under wraps.

The Bottom Line

Nord is owned by Russian billionaire Alexei Mordashov. The estimated cost of the vessel is a steep $500 million. The yacht is one of the largest in the world at 466 feet in length. It can reach speeds of 18 knots and has space for as many as 36 guests with a crew of 50.

Like many Russian-owned yachts, the Nord was almost seized in 2020 as a result of sanctions against Russian oligarchs as a result of the war in Ukraine. However, the vessel was able to elude authorities and was last seen in the Seychelles

Nord Star 42+ yacht tour: Inside Nord Star’s best ever offshore cruiser

  • Top stories

Reporting from the 2023 Southampton Boat Show, MBY's Alex Smith takes us on a full tour of the Nord Star 42+...

The Nord Star 42+ generated quite a buzz at the 2023 Southampton Boat Show . The second-largest model in their lineup, this model impressed us with its versatility and customisation options.

The cockpit design can be tailored to the owner’s preference, with options for U-shaped or L-shaped seating. On the model showcased at the Southampton Boat Show, the U-shaped seating configuration was complemented by live bait wells on both sides, making this potentially a brilliant fishing boat .

Unlike most offshore pilothouse boats, the Nord Star 42+ is built with relatively narrow side decks. This maximizes the interior space in the saloon, but doesn’t sacrifice safety or functionality, as the boat retains its CE Category B rating, so you can be sure it’s seaworthy and safe for offshore adventures.

Stepping onto the foredeck, you’ll find a central island sunbed with an elevated circular hatch in the centre. This unique design allows ample natural light to filter down into the forward cabin, while still offering comfortable seating. The foredeck also features a proper Scandi-style step-through bow.

Moving inside, the helm station and saloon of the Nord Star 42+ impress with their layout and build quality. The helm seat, made by Grammer, is equipped with suspension and adjustable armrests, essential for long journeys, while the helm features a clean, well-organised dashboard with options for multiple displays.

The Nord Star 42+ is offered in two versions: Cruiser and Voyager. One of the distinguishing features of the Cruiser variant seen here is the inclusion of half doors, which open up the internal saloon to the external cockpit seamlessly. Additionally, the Cruiser model offers an expansive galley with modern appliances, enhancing its suitability for extended cruising .

The accommodation on board is both generous and adaptable. The owner’s cabin is symmetrical, with steps on both sides for easy access to the large double bed, and the circular skylight hatch above adds to the cabin’s charm. Moving aft, the second cabin offers impressive flexibility with two large single beds that can convert into a spacious double bed.

The head’s compartment, split into two sections with a dedicated shower room on the port side, reflects the focus on comfort, build quality and practicality that runs throughout the boat.

Propulsion options for the Nord Star 42+ include Volvo Penta D6 440s on stern drives or IPS drives, as well as IPS 600s and 650s. These options cater to a wide range of preferences and performance needs.

The 42+ is proof that Nord Star , with its rich heritage in boat manufacturing, continues to deliver innovative and highly customizable vessels that meet the diverse demands of today’s boaters.

Whether for offshore adventures, fishing trips, or extended cruising, the Nord Star 42+ offers a compelling choice for those seeking a versatile and comfortable boat.

Enjoy the tour…
