opulent

Here is my best explanation:

'loaded' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'old boat containing large case' is the subsidiary indication.
'old' becomes 'o'.
'boat' becomes 'punt' (I've seen this in other clues**).
'containing' is an insertion indicator.
'case' says to hollow out the word (remove centre letters).
'large' with its middle taken out is 'le'.
'punt' placed around 'le' is 'pulent'.
'o'+'pulent'='opulent'
