    It seems to me that it's not the extention of bow but just making some changes in bow name-plate. Nord is the only giga-yacht wich has such plate and probably the owner decided either to somehow improve it or even entirely remove it at all.

    Definitely not an extension of the bow, not with that tenting and the lack of the required lifting equipment and perhaps she would have had to gone in dry dock for that to happen. So it is paint works in that area given then protection and ventilation and or removal of the Nord nameplate or some kind of improvements to it.

    Probably just a paint "touch up"

    "NORD" appears to be back in Germany at Lurssen after her quick stint in the Caribbean. I wonder if she went to do a video shoot or something as she only visited St. Maarten and Antigua mainly which are some of the prime shooting (videoing) destinations for superyachts especially those with charter portfolios.

    Another view of "NORD" on the Weser as she returned to Lurssen.

    "NORD" is on the move once again, seems like she has departed Lurssen and is heading back to Gibraltar.

    The helicopter hangar of NORD seems to have a squash court inside it

    Saw the image you might be referring to you... but I was wondering if the yacht in the image was really "NORD"...as far as I remember, NORD's retractable hangar is black.

    And it's black. It's just the reflection of the light. I saw the same effect in other photos of Nord.
    But if you check the exhaust pipes, the mast...the yacht pictured in the photo is Nord.

    By the way, you can see the squash court also in a video of DrDuu, the one where she is heading back to Lurssen.

    Nord is now off Capri:

    The paint on NORD is very interesting... the lighting conditions of any given photo greatly affect the colors. It's a pretty stellar job by the paint crew at Lurssen.
