FRACTIONAL OWNERSHIP The ongoing economic crisis has significantly reduced the possibilities for many owners to purchase their own yacht. OPUS now offers you the opportunity to purchase a fractional ownership of the OPUS 68-Model No.1. This will appreciably reduce the monetary burden of owning a yacht. Considering the usage pattern, the majority of owners do not perceive any restriction in the quality of use. The fact is, hardly any owner uses his yacht for more than 20-30% of the time, but has to look after and pay for 100% of yacht ownership. With OPUS you pay only a fraction of the purchasing price and running costs and OPUS manages 100% of the organisation for you. For further information don’t hesitate to get in touch…. 1,650,000.-- €

OPUS Yachts Designer’s Statement von Bill Dixon
Dixon Yacht Design is using their extensive knowledge of designing classically styled yachts in partnership with two other companies to produce a new range of ‘classic’ yachts. The vessels, which will have the name Opus, are classic yachts with a difference however. It is only their outward appearance, which can in any way be described as ‘classic’. The new yachts will benefit from considerably more interior space than a

traditionally styled vessel and in all other respects will be almost as far from classic as it is possible to get. The very modern interior design, which is by one of Germanys’ foremost interior designers, Alv Kintscher, is being built to a very high standard, as is the rest of the boat, by Brune Yachtbau, who are the third members of the team. The first yacht, a 68, is already in build with plans for a smaller vessel, at 55 feet, already well advanced. The guiding principals, which have now evolved into the Opus, are very much those of the first owner who, while wanting a yacht with the exterior styling of a yacht from the 1930’s did not want

the limitations that normally go with vessels of that era. Two areas above all others had to be addressed by the design team; the interior had to be spacious, welcoming, and relaxing; a far cry from the narrow and uncomfortable interiors of yesterday. Secondly, the yachts sail plan had to provide a vessel which would be easily managed by a short handed or family crew. Opus 68 number ones layout includes two double guest cabins in the stern, both ensuite. Forward of the aft cabins, a spacious ‘gourmet kitchen, with work surfaces both outboard and inboard sits to port, and the dining area, which will seat 8

is to starboard. Just forward of the galley is the owners’ suite which occupies the full beam of the vessel and includes a double and a single berth, a writing desk, library, walk in closet and of course, full ensuite facilities. In the bow a further ensuite double cabin for use by guests or crew can be accessed from the deck. The yachts interior has several features unusual on yachts of today, including an open fire in the saloon, and all in all the extensive use of cloth and felt, allied to wood and leather, creates the modern but extremely comfortable and homely atmosphere required by the owner; as is immediately apparent looking at the interior imagery.

The accommodation is reached from the deckhouse which has a navigation table, two comfortable chairs and a coffee table, plus an outboard berth ideally positioned for the ‘on call’ crew member. Just as much thought has gone into the cockpit and deck areas of the yacht to provide a vessel where the exterior spaces are as much a part of the living area as the interior; eight people can sit comfortably in the huge and cosy cockpit around the table which can be easily screened from the sun with the fixed bimini; extra protection is given by the doghouse ‘eyebrows’. Use has also been made of the main deck with a dining table positioned forward of the doghouse and stowage has been provided for a large

dingy. Safety is still paramount as far as the deck is concerned and the flush decks and bulwarks provide secure passage for those working on deck in heavy weather. A sloop rig is standard on the Opus 68 but in line with the first owner’s requirement to have a yacht which is easy to handle the first vessel is being rigged as a schooner; a solution which will provide the owner with many ‘sail set’ options depending on the weather conditions. The sail plan will be easy to handle with manual winches but subsequent 68’s can be supplied with either electric or hydraulically powered winches if required.

The yachts underbody shows a thoroughly modern configuration with a fixed keel and spade rudder but she is also being offered with several other keel configurations including shoal draft versions.

The two aft cabins are mirror images of each other. Both shower/WC areas have glass panels from the base to 1.20 meters so that the interiors remain visible when not in use, adding a sense of open space to the interiors of the cabin. The bathroom décor is of highest quality. There is a comfortable leather armchair fixed to the floor in front of the double bed. Cabinets above the berths offer enough storage space. The space below the beds can also be used for storage..

Specification Opus in 68ft Effective as of November 2008 Aluminium Hull Aluminium hull with deck and superstructures. Cockpit aperture bordered with ALUFlach 80/8 mm for fixing into the wooden body. All cabin plates are welded into the hull. The transom includes a hatch, which is operated through cable winch; access through a split hatch in the aft deck and aluminium ladder. Rig The model OPUS 1 is equipped with a Schooner rig including two full-batten

mainsails. Since the sail area is distributed over two masts, the schooner requires smaller sails and a lower mast height. This leads to lower heeling, lesser leeway and easier handling of the rigs without complex and interference-prone technology. The only slight disadvantage is lower performance in case it’s closely hauled. Despite the size, the schooner can still be set to sail without using powered furlers and winches (hydraulic and electrical winches and furlers as well as roller furling system in the masts are available on request). A yankee and self tending staysail are required

in front of the main mast. The staysail functions as the bad weather sail, during which yankee sail is then rolled away. The OPUS in 68 ft is also available with sloop rigging upon request. General Interior design The OPUS is a semi-custom yacht, and hence the interiors of the ship are developed in collaboration with the owner. If you wish, you have the option of making your yacht into an OPUS. The team comprising of Alv Kintscher and Willi Brune- aficionados and specialists in designing superior quality interiors- will be glad to assist you in your concept.

The following specifications refer to the prototype OPUS Model No. 1, on the basis of which the price has been calculated. The description is just an indication of the efforts and quality, which go into building an OPUS semicustom yacht.

Alv Kitntscher describes his goals while designing the “ OPUS as following: “ The OPUS 1 stays true to certain aesthetic principles: we give selected natural materials, with robust and aged surfaces, a clear, confident and modern form. Not only do we have a certain understanding for natural beauty, but we also have a logical reasoning behind using “old” materials. The interiors of a yacht are exposed to the daily rigours of sailing. Consequently, after a short time the surfaces show the wear and tear of use. Classic painted, monochrome surfaces are not particularly resistant and require high maintenance and care. We, on the other

hand, age our surfaces, so that they show certain traces of “wear and tear”. This way, any further vestiges of use are integrated into the look of the surface. Hence paradoxically” the older “the design looks at the beginning; the more innovative it gets with time. Literally, it becomes more beautiful with age. “ The saloon of OPUS 1 has furnished with whitewashed oak, which has been scrubbed and brushed to give it the patina of age. The floor of the ship looks like it has been placed 100 years ago. Corresponding to the floor, are the oiled (but not painted) walnut surfaces, which is used primarily as work surface in the pantry.

Furthermore, the aged wood obtained from torn down barns and used as a delicate styling element, is an absolute eye catcher. Amongst others it is used as the rear panel for a glass cabinet, where the owner can display jewellery, cups, a sculpture or fine glassware”. The corner bench around the walnut dining table is upholstered with robust leather. The same leather is used to upholster the comfortable coffee-house armchairs in the deckhouse, as well as to cover the navigation table and the small bureau in the owner’s cabin. The sofa, with its bright red woollen upholstery and opulent

cushions, is a splash of colour. Its counterpart is the pilot’s berth in the deckhouse. The final textile element used is felt. It has been integrated into the design as wall panelling in the main bulkhead and as design element in the cabins. This “old fashioned” material is made exciting by graphically dividing it using black steel bars. This upgrade of felt through the graphical elements converts it into a top modern design component. Technical features: bulkheads, floors, furniture surfaces are mainly constructed using sandwich method.

Light A well-conceptualised lighting solution is a part of every good interior design. Indirect lighting is provided at the base as well in the ceiling. This lighting delicately emphasises the curved lines of the ship’s interior. Individual lighting is enabled through suitable table lamps with lampshades in the cabins, the saloon and the deckhouse. The entire ship has various ceiling lights. Red lights are used as night lighting throughout the ship. A circular light-band provides indirect lighting outside the deckhouse.

Cabins: Crew cabins in the bow On the portside 1 narrow double bed, above which there is one foldable single bed, if two crew members wish to sleep separately. A ladder from the crew cabins leads to the deck of the bow. Wet rooms in the bow are similar to other bathrooms Owner’s cabin in the bow On the portside there is a closet with sliding doors, drawers and a hanging rail for clothes. On the opposite side, towards the right of the entrance, there is sideboard with a library/bookshelf above it. 1 single bed on the portside. On the starboard side, 1 double bed ca. 140 cm broad bedhead.

Mattresses for both beds are around 74 cm, with plenty of stowage space below. Between both beds there is a desk with a walnut tabletop with drawers, on one side. On the right side there is another small cabinet with 2 shallow and 2 deep drawers, which can be completely pulled out. Behind the desk there is a small space for writing paraphernalia such as pens, erasers. The tabletop is also partly covered with leather. Beside it a cupboard, also used as passage in the Crew cabin (waterproof).

Shower/WC in the owner’s cabin Entrance doors are rounded and glue-laminated; with small openings to allow light to filter in. Entire shower floor can be used a showertub. Wall panelling is similar to other showers and WC. Floor is oiled and with oak grating. Pantry The surface is gluelaminated and rounded in sandwich construction. All drawers and surfaces are designed in such a way that the handles and closing mechanism are concealed. In between the upper and lower cabinets, there are mobile cabinets with white slats towards the right and

left sides. Ceiling-high wall units with glue-laminated surfaces, which can be opened as doors or as hatches, are fitted with shelves. The wall units have base lighting as well as rope lighting system between the wall units, ceiling and base. Circular counter. Saloon, Seating corner, Fireplace Below the circular counter towards the saloon side there is a glassed cabinet with rounded doors. 1 Table in rounded form, ca. 105 x 170 cm, with walnut countertop, with a stone, oak, stainless steel etc work surface in the middle. Table is foldable along the middle. 1 small coffee table,

diameter 45 cm, including coaming, can be fixed on the floor in two locations using the stainless steel rods. On the starboard wall, just beside the bench 1 small couch with upholstered back. Towards the saloon side, there is one small fireproof niche for an ethanol furnace. This furnace is a special feature as it creates a cosy atmosphere of an open fireplace, behind the closed glass doors. The combustion application is gimball-mounted, which is an innovative development of OPUS. The best feature is that ethanol has zero emissions and hence can be used inside without requiring a chimney. The fireplace is

not just for appearances sake; it also generates 1.2 kW of heat. Guest Cabin Starboard 1 floor cabinet unit with a small support structure, 1 ceiling-high built-in closet, and bed. 1 shelf between bed and floor unit with racks from above and the side. 1 double bed as wide as the room and ceiling high wall units in slightly curved form. Between bed and wall units, vertical white racks, with coamed shelf-space. Towards the inside, 1 closet with 2 sliding doors, which enable complete usage of space from ceiling to floor. Stowage space available below the bed.

Guest Cabin Portside Furnished as above, except for 2 single beds. Deckhouse / Navigation Deckhouse measures 3x3m. Complete all-round vision. There is a seating area on the starboard side, ca. 2 x 0.7m, covered with red wool material. Next to it, two comfortable leather armchairs with a coffee table.
