Conqueror 260 FT: Lukasz Opalinski Designs
Master Designer, Lukasz Opalinski
“I am a citizen of the world” Lukasz Opalinski states, however, as the principle designer of Project Magnitude, a 90 meter luxury mega yacht jointly presented by Dutch yacht builders, Oceanco, it is quickly apparent that Opalinski is not just a citizen but a visionary in his own right.
Originally hailing from Poland, Opalinski was inspired at an early age. Upon realization of his hyper-awareness of the environment around him, he found comfort in the pages of his sketchbook. At 20, Opalinski left Poland to study in the UK where his talents soared and he eventually established himself as an artist/designer of all things, namely furniture. Many became enthralled by Opalinski’s creations as they grew to be referred to as not only functional but pieces of art. Eight years later, Opalinski left England to craft his brand in the United States where his proven artistry connected with the complex thoughts of industrial design.
Despite its classic appearance, Conqueror 260 FT is masterfully designed with a long list of innovative features, ultimately elevating this vessel to the next level in terms of performance, safety, luxury and comfort.
The Propulsion Maneuvering & Power Generation: 2 x Azipod CO 2.4 drives provides increased performance, maneuverability and fuel economy with less vibration.
The Azipod is supported by ABB electric power distribution with electricity generated by direct coupled Gas Turbines. This Azipod system provides a variety of power options in acoordance with demand.
Turbines may be brought on or off line as the demand requires, which providing fuel savings, longer service life and full operation of the drive units at all times, consequently offering a remarkable and improved redundancy factor.
The Gas Turbine exhaust gas is clean and turbines may be installed without the constraints of through hull shafts. This design limits vibration relative to the alternative main engine plant.
Tenders are stored in garages on the main deck which enables operation in most sea states as well as launch & recovery at speeds up to 10 knots. A retractable helipad with Heli Grid supports safe & effective helicopter operations.
