MONACO. There have been more changes at German design studio Newcruise in the last few months, Katharina Raczek revealed to us at Monaco Yacht Show last week.

Raczek, who was joint partner at the studio with Roland Krüger following Frank Neubelt's departure in 2012 told SuperyachtDesign that since the office has relocated from its base in Hamburg to south of the Elbe she has taken the decision to sell her shares of the company and start her own interior design company as well as work on all the superyacht interiors with Newcruise.

She explained that while she is no longer at Newcruise full time, she is still extremely closely involved with them and still acts as interior designer on their projects. "We will still cooperate with each other a lot," she told us. "But I will also now work on more residential interiors under my own name and will still be based in Hamburg."

Raczek and Newcruise have most recently worked on the interior for the Dubois sailing yacht Ganesha, their very first sailing yacht project, which is set to be undergoing sea trials in the next three weeks according to Raczel.
