ARTEFACT by Nobiskrug

Nobiskrug were the Winners of the Motor Yacht Over 60 Meters Award in The International Yacht & Aviation Awards.

Regarded as a platform for innovation, ARTEFACT has been designed to try and reshape the future of yachting by showcasing the state-of-the-art technology and innovative power and performance opportunities.

Nobiskrug’s ARTEFACT’s styling began with the intent for her on board experience: expansive views in all directions, on board privacy between areas both indoors and outdoors, grand public spaces and intimate private ones. When imagined in three dimensions these requirements create a yacht where house sides weave in and out, windows are singular and massive, overhangs have been stripped away or re-defined and the geometry of the yacht herself creates privacy and shelter.

ARTEFACT’s signature is evidently her radical, asymmetrical window shapes and expansive glazing. Over 750 square meters of glass weighing almost 60 tons are on board. The longest pane is 10.6 meters, and the thickest is 9.4 centimetres. Lightweight and corrosion-resistant GRP compensates for the heavy glass and allows for the complex shapes of the mouldings. ARTEFACT is at once meant to be kinetic, powerful, elegant and organic.

At a length of 80 meters with a 14.6-metre beam and gross tonnage of 2,999 tons ARTEFACT is the highest-volume superyacht of her length on the water.

Built under IMO Tier III, emission regulations, this hybrid superyacht incorporates environmental and advanced technology unprecedented in this class of vessel such as: the use of solar panels and a large battery storage system, an innovative DC-bus diesel-electric Azipod propulsion system, a wastewater recycling system, dynamic positioning system.

ARTEFACT embodies a unique blend qualities, where the attention to detail with engineering and technology underlying the yacht is matched with a modern, characterful style and atmosphere with clever use of materials.
