While details remain sparse, Opera is understood to have a 20 metre beam and interior volume exceeding 10,000GT. Her design team remain under wraps, but the yacht’s lines bear a resemblance to a number of Terence Disdale projects.

Opera is thought to be a rebuild project of 145 metre Project Sassi, which was sadly destroyed in the 2018 shipyard fire.

The bare hull of the yacht was last seen in May 2021, when she was moved to Bremen in Europe's largest floating dock, which is 290 metres long and must be accompanied by four tug boats.

The yacht joins nine other in-build Lürssen superyachts, including the 100 metre + Project Alibaba and 145 metre Project Luminance. The 122 metre Project Jag is set to hit the water soon after completing outfitting, with delivery slated for April 2023.
