Hull and Superstructure Joined on 77m Nobiskrug Project Black Shark

German yard Nobiskrug has joined the hull and superstructure of its 77 metre in-build superyacht Project Black Shark.

The construction milestone took place on October 20 at the yard’s Kiel based facility.

It comes after the yard laid the keel of the project in February, which included the coin insertion tradition. This saw the owner place a special coin under the keel.

The keel laying ceremony was also attended by owner’s representative and construction supervisor Imperial and marked the symbolic start to the yacht’s hull assembly.

It comes after the yacht was sold by Imperial in April 2018 with a withheld asking price.

The five-deck yacht is set to be built in steel and aluminium to a design by Winch Design and will feature a distinctive reverse bow.

Scheduled for a spring 2021 delivery, the yacht will feature interior design by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design and will include two luxury tenders, an on-deck whirlpool and a grand beach club with a spa area.

The accommodation layout has not been revealed but it is known that Project Black Shark will be built under Tier 3 regulations and the Red Ensign Yacht Code Part A. Key figures include a 12.75 metre beam and 2,080 GT.

Both Imperial and Nobiskrug said they had decided to “open our doors and give exclusive behind the scenes access” on Project Black Shark as it progresses.

Imperial chief executive Evgeniy Kochman said: “With Project Black Shark, together with Nobiskrug, we want to give a clearer understanding of our industry and how exclusive creations are coming to life, who are the people behind.”
