German shipbuilder Nobiskrug has announced the yard has secured a contract for the construction of a 100m-plus superyacht currently known as Project Phoenix, keeping up with the impressive scale of its most recent launch, in July 2019, of 80m Artefact.
Nobiskrug will ‘push the boundaries of engineering and innovation with the newly signed 100-metre-plus superyacht project,’ according to a statement issued by the shipyard. Project Phoenix will reportedly feature the latest advances in smart design and innovative engineering.
According to data supplied by The Superyacht Agency, Nobiskrug’s cumulative superyacht LOA currently stands at 877m, and will reach a towering 1,016m by 2021. The steadily increasing scale of Nobiskrug’s projects indicates the shipyard’s comfort working with larger vessels, ever since its inaugural project in 2000 with 92m Tatoosh. In our upcoming edition of The Pacific Superyacht Report, which will be available here, we explore the operational profile of seminal vessels such as Tatoosh, which had been owned by the late Paul Allen and utilised in unique ways.
Over 900 in-house employees currently work at the shipyard’s three facilities in Northern Germany, supporting the shipyard’s order book which can accommodate a building range across a variety of maritime sectors, from 60m to 426m.
Keep an eye on SuperyachtNews.com for more details regarding Project Phoenix’s extraordinary design features, which will be published in due course.
Nobiskrug will be exhibiting at this year's Monac Yacht Show. For all the latest news please click here.
