First look: 80 metre Nobiskrug Projekt 790 on the move
by Chris Jefferies
The as-yet-unnamed Gregory C Marshall-designed yacht is the latest project from the Privinvest-owned yard, which delivered the largest new yacht of 2017, the 142.81 metre Sailing Yacht A, to Russian owner Andrey Melnichenko.
The keel laying ceremony took place back in March, but as the new photos show, the yacht has quickly taken shape, with the hull and superstructure largely complete. The next stage will involve fitting out the interiors - a process that will take place in Nobiskrug's climate-controlled Rendsburg facility.
Very little information is available about this new Nobiskrug yacht so far, apart from the target delivery date of 2019 and the build materials of steel, aluminium and teak. The yard added that this project will feature a notably large amount of glass, as well as boasting innovative technology and a spacious and modern interior.
Speaking earlier this year, managing director Holger Kahl added: “Nobiskrug is known for pushing the boundaries and for not being a mass builder, every superyacht we build represents a unique vision of the owner — this project is just another example we are very proud of."
As well as new-build superyachts, the Kiel-based yard has interests in a wide range of industries, including refit projects and the conversion of naval ships and workboats. This latest update comes less than a month after the yard announced a new partnership with Wally, the first fruits of which is an 83 metre explorer yacht concept.
