German shipyard NOBISKRUG celebrates a landmark 115 years since its 1905 inception. Recognised today as one of the world’s foremost builders of spectacular fully custom superyachts, the shipyard is built upon a solid foundation of German naval history.

Responsible for some of the most challenging and visionary superyachts ever built, its brand pedigree dates back to the beginning of the Nobiskrug story, when in 1958 post World War II, it delivered 93 m cargo vessel Bleichen.

Since that time, Nobiskrug has built naval training ships (138m Deutschland, 1963); car, train and passenger ferries; dive support vessels (Seabex One, 1981); icebreaker, research and supply vessels (Polarstern, 1982). The year 2000 marked a turning point for the yard, however, when it delivered its first superyacht - 92m Tatoosh – which remains today one of the world’s most famous.

From award-winning 68m Sycara V to the striking 74m Mogambo, and from 143m industry changing Sailing Yacht A to the environmentally innovative 80m Artefact, the Rendsburg facility never ceases to strive for boundary-pushing, architecturally challenging, aesthetically arresting projects. Even in the current climate, its order book is full, and its future is more than healthy.

Nobiskrug’s managing director, Johan Valentijn, comments: “Central to Nobiskrug’s success is the integral contribution made by all of our valued employees, with whom we share this momentous 115th Anniversary, and all of our esteemed clients, partners and suppliers. Today we stand together, stronger than ever, and 115 years young.”
