Nobiskrug upgrading 165m floating dock in Kiel
Headquartered in the inland city of Rendsburg, the German superyacht builder will soon open the upgraded dock at its sister shipyard in the coastal city of Kiel.
Nobiskrug is preparing to start building a superyacht in the modernised 165m floating dock at its upgraded sister facility in the Lindenau shipyard in Kiel, on the country’s northeast coast.
Renowned for pioneering custom superyachts such as Sailing Yacht A and Artefact, Nobiskrug is headquartered in the inland city of Rendsburg, west of Kiel along the Kiel Canal.
After parent company Privinvest approved an investment package to upgrade the Lindenau shipyard located 45km away, work began in March and is now nearing the completion of phase two.
A new-build project is expected to start at the 165m floating dock in late October. The Lindenau facility is located at the entrance of the Kiel Canal and supports Nobiskrug’s new build and refit order book.
“Nobiskrug continues to see high demand for new build projects and large refits despite the global economic impact of Covid-19 in 2020,” the company said in a statement.
The builder has earned a reputation for innovative, custom-built superyachts since the delivery of 92m Tatoosh in 2000. More recent builds include the 143m Sailing Yacht A completed in 2015 and the 80m hybrid-powered Artefact, delivered this year.
