The 142.6 metre highly secretive Lürssen superyacht Nord hit the water for the first time in 2020 and was delivered in February 2021 after which it headed south to explore the Spanish coast before crossing the Atlantic to cruise the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. The yacht then headed back to Germany where it was spotted by yacht photographer Dr Duu.

Designed by Italian design studio Nuvolari Lenard, Nord features a total of six decks, which can all be seen clearly here. Speaking about the superyacht, studio co-founder Dan Lenard previously described Nord as "a warship wearing a tuxedo". The yacht is specifically intended for long-range cruising and global exploration.

Five of Nord's six decks can be seen in this image, with the large swimming pool positioned aft of the main deck. Various sun lounging and dining areas can be seen aft of the upper and bridge decks while the first of two helipads sits above. Nord is also equipped with a sports and diving centre on the lower deck.

The second helipad sits at the bow of the superyacht, which appears golden in this light. The striking plate declaring Nord's name also sits front and centre, allowing no confusion about the identity of the approaching superyacht.

Nord's aft name plate lights up as night falls, while bright lighting illuminates the decks. One of Nord's fleet of tenders, the largest of which measures 15 metres, can also be seen here moored to the stern of the yacht.
