As the saying goes, size does matter. At least in the case of superyachts, that is. Ocean Residences Development are teaming up with designers and architects to release M/Y Njord; at a jaw-dropping 293 metres, the company’s new creation makes it the world’s largest private superyacht.

Named after the Norse god of the seas and winds, this beauty of the water is fit for endless ventures out on the high seas. Not only is M/Y Njord a pioneering residential superyacht, it’s also the world’s most technically advanced environment-friendly green ship, and is set to create a new language of luxury for those on board.

While we eagerly wait for M/Y Njord to be out on the waters, here’s everything that you need to know about the glamorous residence on water.

Its interior design is specially curated

Award-winning architectural and interior design legend Jean-Michel Gathy is the mind behind the M/Y Njord’s look. With his architecture and design studio Denniston, Gathy has become the go-to name for the creation of innovative and forward-thinking designs for leading luxury hotels around the world.

From designing the Instagram-famous infinity pool at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, to One&Only’s gorgeous getaway located in Maldives, it only makes sense that Gathy was the front runner to give M/Y Njord the opulent interior design that it deserves.
