NJORD is the ultimate private super yacht for a community of Epicureans prepared to travel the world in cutting edge luxury and style.
Ownership of one of NJORD’s 118 residences entitles you to join one of the most exclusive communities in the world. NJORD is a home, a community and a place for personal enrichment and adventure for its exclusive community of owners. It’s not only about exquisite luxury and impeccable service; it’s about living life in an enhancing, intellectual, spiritually nourishing and meaningful way. Renato Chizzola, head of resident relations and lifestyle says, “Imagine the inspiration you get from seeing the most awe-inspiring scenery passing by while relaxing on your own private terrace, enjoying your favourite drink. One day watching polar bears on an ice floe or on another, in tropical Papua New Guinea as you anticipate what lies ahead. All from the comfort of your home.”
Aptly named after the Norse god of the wind and seas, NJORD is a fitting name for this majestic super yacht. On-board, the highly personalised services and activities are limitless and rewarding. Ashore, there’s a wealth of experiences to be enjoyed as you are immersed into the culture, history or economics of a region that few people get to explore. The crew of the NJORD are more than just a crew – they devote their careers to life on board and the delivery of a superior experience for all on board.
A yacht of this size takes great care and attention to detail at every stage. The DIV Shipbuilding will take on the first phase of construction of this unique residential yacht from their Brodosplit Shipyard in Croatia. The Chairman and CEO of Ocean Residences Development Ltd., Kristian Stensby says: “This milestone represents the next exciting chapter in M/Y NJORD’s development, as the project transitions from drawing board to construction. The DIV Shipbuilding is a world-class yacht and ship constructor with a reputation for completing highly sophisticated superyachts, passenger ships and other high-specification, purpose-built vessels.

NJORD’s design is the realisation of a talented team of naval architects, engineers and designers. Led by Jean- Louis Stutzmann, the chief designer and a noted interior designer with an extensive career in, ocean liner, yacht design and luxury residential. Working alongside him is Espen Øino International, the world’s leading super yacht Design Company. Every detail is meticulously designed to enhance the residents’ experience. The Residences will, as one would expect, be elegantly appointed and spacious with floor-to-ceiling picture windows and sea views from every bedroom and living area.
So, what motivated the creation of this exceptional lifestyle? “My vision is to leave a lasting legacy in our wake,” says Kristian Stensby, “a luxury yacht with a purpose which is meticulously designed by icons of the marine world and that takes personalised services to an entirely new level. 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.”
NJORD will be equipped with a professional oceanographic research laboratory containing sophisticated monitoring equipment. Throughout NJORD’s annual circumnavigation of the globe, scientists and experts will research the changing environment, record sea and air conditions, and scanners will map the ocean floor. All this information will be processed and made available to further humankind’s understanding of our planet’s oceanic secrets. Eco-conscious passengers will do their part to help further the study of environmental issues by providing valuable data collection.
NJORD considers its passengers every need. Facilities on-board include an impressive yacht and dive club with two submarines, jet skis, sailing craft of varying size and ‘Riva’ style limo tenders. Restaurants will have the finest Michelin-standard chefs, and a lecture and movie theatre provide space for a variety of events. There are also professional medical facilities and an extensive wellness centre providing transformative treatments, individually tailored nutrition plans and preventative wellness therapies.
NJORD is set to be one of the most exclusive residential communities on earth and without doubt the finest address, everywhere in the world.
