With the completion of extensive outfitting works, Nobiskrug's high-tech and environmentally-conscious 80-metre superyacht Artefact (Project 790) has left the superyacht hall and is now entering the final stage before her delivery this summer season.

Following 18 months in Nobiskrug'S climate-controlled superyacht hall in Rendsburg, the visually striking M/Y Artefact will be publicly visible for the first time as the finishing touches are put in place. The highly-anticipated vessel has been transformed: the composite superstructure has been completed, the steel hull has undergone extensive works, both were filled, faired and painted, and integral elements of this highly technical build have been successfully completed.

At a length of 80 meters with a 14.6-metre beam and gross tonnage of 2,990 tons, Artefact's innovative design by Gregory C. Marshall is distinguished by a number of new technological and engineering features, such as:

  • The use of solar panels and a large battery storage system that allows the vessel to operate for a limited time with no internal combustion engines operating;
  • An innovative DC-bus diesel-electric Azipod propulsion system developed by ABB combined with dynamic positioning that can hold position without dropping anchor to protect sensitive sea floor - custom six-bladed propellers minimize noise and vibration while maximizing performance and efficiency;
  • A wastewater recycling system for re-use as technical water; Designation as among the first superyachts to meet IMO Tier III emissions regulation;
  • An unprecedented floor-to-ceiling glass central section complimenting 740 square meters of curved and expressive glasswork weighing almost 60 tons.
As Artefact moves into public view, exterior developments include the installation of stabilizers and bow thrusters for maneuverability and comfort at sea, a movable bathing platform for easy access to the water, and the fitting of automated sun awnings, teak decking and fixed furniture.

Inside, the unique and ground breaking custom Reymond Langton-designed interior, furniture and artwork is being finalized and expertly installed.

The commissioning, including Harbour Acceptance Tests, will be finalized at the pier, culminating in sea trials before Artefact's summer delivery.
