German shipyard Nobiskrug, renowned for its fully custom superyachts such as Sailing Yacht A and Artefact, is expanding the capacity and capabilities of its new build and refit business.
The expansion plans will include the historic Lindenau facility located in the city of Kiel.
Nobiskrug has reported high demand for new build projects and large refits despite the global economic impact of Covid-19 in 2020. The parent company Privinvest approved an investment package to upgrade the sister shipyard Lindenau located 45 kilometres away from Nobiskrug’s Rendsburg facilities.
The works started back in March and are now entering the completion of phase two to welcome a new build project at the end of October in its 165-metre floating dock.
Lindenau site is located at the entrance of the Kiel Canal and is ideally positioned to support Nobiskrug’s growing new build and refit order book.
With the addition of a new 165-metre floating dock, Nobiskrug will boost its capacity to new heights.
The Rendsburg facility has delivered a number of innovative superyachts.
Nobiskrug is celebrating its 115th year in business and has extensive experience in building seagoing vessels. Nobiskrug turned to yacht building completing its inaugural project in 2000 with the 92m M/Y Tatoosh.
Since then, Nobiskrug delivered a select portfolio of custom-built superyachts, choosing to concentrate on one single project for one single client when building superyachts.
