The philosophy behind the design of the 954-foot-long NJORD may have been inspired by some of the largest and most luxurious superyachts in the world. And having Jean-Louis Stutzmann, the chief designer and experienced ocean liner interior designer working with legendary superyacht designer Espen Øino International may help give the design some superyacht street cred.
But, the reality is, NJORD is more akin to The Worldand other exclusive cruise ships than a private superyacht simply because NJORD is designed to offer a total of 118 residences on board.

All residences will have separate service entries for maximum privacy. Every bedroom will have an ocean view with access to a terrace. And residences will feature high-end kitchens, en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets in addition to state-of-the-art communication and entertainment systems.
And NJORD’s massive size make it possible to accommodate two, eight-passenger twin-engine helicopters, a research laboratory, a complete marina with a multitude of water sports equipment, one seven-passenger submersible and one three-passenger submersible, a custom-built dive boat, expedition zodiacs and four “Riva style” limo tenders.
It’s also equipped with a self-levelling, gyroscopically stabilized telescope set under retractable sliding glass roof.
As you’d also expect, a wide variety of dining venues are planned to rival the best restaurants in the world. The ship’s large wellness center will offer panoramic views and include a world-class spa, a state-of-the-art fitness center and an aerobics and dance studio.
In addition, a wide variety of enrichment programs local and regional experts offered through lectures, workshops and hands-on experiences.
And of course, owners will be able to enjoy a wide range of recreational facilities, including a large swimming pool and feature pool for children, a golf center, and an all-purpose sports deck.
“My vision is to leave a lasting legacy in our wake,” says Kristian Stensby, founder and CEO of Ocean Residences Development Ltd, the developer of NJORD. “A luxury yacht with a purpose which is meticulously designed by icons of the marine world and that takes personalized services to an entirely new level.”
And NJORD will also be equipped with a professional oceanographic research laboratory so scientists and experts can record sea and air conditions and map the ocean floor.
“As residents travel the globe, they are united in a philanthropic purpose, creating positive change where it matters most. They will explore the planet, enjoy it in all its glory, and at the same time, they may want to give something back,” Stensby says
