    IMHO she is gorgeous.

    Project Orchid reminds me of Quatroelle, especially the stern, though she is better looking to my eye.

    That's what I thought, a more stylized version.

    Looks like ***** is overseeing the build of a 133M Lurssen code named Opus. From the rendering released, she looks great! She takes a lot of styling cues fromAlfa Nero.

    Where is the render for project Opus, I can't see anything on the ***** or Lurssen sites?

    Interesting project name. It's possibly coincidence but Opus II, a 35m Heesen built in 1997, has been listed for sale with De Valk since September 2014

    From a 35M built in 1997 to a brand new 133M ... nice upgrade.

    Although there have been a few yachts whose project name became also their final name like Azzam, Topaz, Pelorus and Octopus. But I in this case I very much doubt that there is a connection between these 2 yachts.

    Just like to admit that the project name of "Pelorus" was "Coral Island II".
    And she is really look, in stylish terms, like enlarged version of the latter.
    Though designers of these yachts, as officially claimed, are different.:rolleyes:

    A photo of Project Opus was in an ad, not on their site yet.

    For those of you who have not seen the ad as yet. Here is a photo of "Opus"published by her designers Nuvolari & Lenard. As Ken said she is 133m and the launch is scheduled for 2019. She will be really spectacular!

    Btw one of the floating drydocks at the Lürssen facilities in Rendsburg was towed to another shipyard in Germany where she is undergoing some modernisation work. The lifting capacitiy will also be increased by 600t to 4600tons. It will return to the shipyard in July.

    Wow, she looks like a full seven decker, looks like the main deck has a very high ceiling height too.

    This Project Opus looks like a typical oceAnco yacht to me.
    Something like enlarged Equanimity mixed with Alfa Nero and Pr. Olga.
    And why, on earth, she bears the Italian Flag?
    How all these relates to Lürsseno_O

    I would guess the Italian flag is because the design is from Nuvolari Lenard and its reminiscent of Alfa Nero because the same design house was responsible for both. The design, to me, seems to have bits of both project Omar and Azzam in it.

    I really like Esther III and think the interior actually works really well with the exterior. However, she looks really out of place in the Med, she looks more like she should be cruising the Baltic, the US North East, Canada, Norway and Greenland.

    It seems like "Al Salamah" was actually sold as she is now sailing under the flag of Barhain.
