Nobiskrug and Messerschmitt Yachts present 79m MTT-SHIELD concept

3 March 2023 • Written by Gabrielle Lazaridis

Nobiskrug has teamed up with Swiss design studio Messerschmitt Yachts to reveal renderings for a 78.8-metre superyacht concept named MTT-SHIELD.

The design, by studio founder Felix Messerschmitt, takes inspiration from the automotive industry and is conceived as a "long bonnet racing car on the sea" designed for long-range journeys in total comfort. Its minimalist profile makes use of clean lines with bands of dark floor-to-ceiling glazing, and is based on the same naval architecture as the 77-metre Project Black Shark.

Guests can board at the stern thanks to a large swim platform and twin staircases ascending to the main deck aft, while a hydraulic foldable gangway provides a second point of entry on the starboard side. 

Various amenities have also been included in the design to elevate the onboard experience of guests, such as a fully-equipped spa area comprised of a hammam, plunge pool and sauna, and as many as three Jacuzzis with the largest positioned forward on the sundeck serviced by a bar.

A central elevator connects each of the four levels on board, connecting the five guest cabins found on the lower deck with the owner's stateroom on the main deck, complete with a private office and balcony. Elsewhere, a secondary staircase and elevator for the crew to operate out of the way of guests optimises the yacht for both private and charter.

Additional highlights onboard will include a helicopter pad on the bridge deck, a formal dining space for 12 beneath the shade of the sundeck overhang and ample storage space for three tenders and two Sea-Doos concealed beneath the helideck. At a cruising speed of 12 knots, the yacht's 6,500-nautical-mile range contributes to its ocean-crossing capabilities.

Work is currently underway on three separate projects at Nobiskrug, including the 77-metre Project Black Shark expected for delivery later this year.
