    Its a great design for such a massive yacht, but I still think Crescent is the best looking out of the recent 130m+ designs from Lurssen.

    That's subjective but I personally believe that all of them (recent 125M plus builds from Lurssen) have their strong points. One thing we can say, they are all balanced designs.

    Another view of "NORD"... clearly showing that lengthy and thin recess running from the bow all the way aft...has LED striplighting in it.

    "NORD" re-emerged from the floating dry dock at Lurssen this morning. This is now the third time she has been in that dry dock since her original launching. Appeared to depart the floating dry dock under her own power without being tethered to a tug -although a tug was ahead of her-.

    Hopefully she is ready to depart soon. Looking forward to seeing her out in the waters.

    Probably have just been playing with the props and what not to meet design requirements.

    I've never seen those red details on her bathing platform.

    Yeah I saw it only for the first time in that video. I wonder if it is paint detailing or if it is protection film.

    According to DrDuu, Project Opus owners christened the yacht today but the final delivery will take some time.

    Project Opus heli-tender will be an AgustaWestland AW139 (VP-CMF registration if you want to see how she looks) and she has (at least) one Windy open tender.

    I think it is official now, not like we didn't know but I believe the OPUS covers of the name plate are off now. I have seen several night photos with the NORD plates (midships and stern) aglow and the yacht lit up. There is also an lit 'N' set on a globe up by the uptakes.

    Definitely was protective film, as those grill details back there are chromed/polished stainless as seen in the latest photos and videos.
