August 3, 2021 Cruise News No Comments

According to a report in Cruise Industry News, Ocean Residences has announced that it has signed a ship construction contract with Meyer Werft to build the M/Y Njord with target delivery in 2025.

The CEO of Ocean Residences Development, Kristian Stensby said, “We are fortunate to have the opportunity to partner with Meyer Werft, a company that has kept its shipbuilding on course for 226 years – that’s seven generations – and which is the world leader in building innovative and complex passenger vessels with a stellar reputation for exceptional quality, precision and on-time deliveries,” adding, “Around 50 luxury liners have left their shipyard to date.”

According to a press release, the Njord is designed to meet the strictest environmental regulations, both at delivery and for the future, with the vessel to be powered by dual-fuel engines, with tank capacity for marine gas oil and LNG, batteries for hybridization, heat recovery systems, and advanced power management systems.

To ensure that the vessel is future-proof, the engines and fuel tanks will be ready for easy conversion, to take advantage of future fuels with lower or neutral carbon footprint, Ocean Residences said, with Meyer Werft’s Managing Director Bernard Meyer adding, “Our company is proud to embark on building the finest green ship ever built. Meyer Werft’s commitment to ocean conservation is a top priority, the vision of the Njord as a ship with a purpose is directly aligned with our company values and commitment to the environment,”

The 289-meter private residential yacht will feature 117 residences, described as “a home to a community of individuals and families, sharing a passion for travel, adventure and discovery – across oceans, beneath the seas, in the air and on land,”

Ocean Residences also said that the Njord will have a philanthropic purpose, adding, “She is equipped to undertake scientific and oceanographic research everywhere she travels, in supporting charities, missions and pressing causes” and  “In co-operation with oceanographic research organizations and scientific groups, M/Y Njord will encourage research projects that work to advance scientific frontiers and global marine research that will assist in a greater understanding of the complex systems that support our earth”.

Ocean Residences said that the Njord has been very well received and is experiencing high demand for reservations.
