The custom built hull for NOBISKRUG’s 77-meter Project Black Shark has arrived the at the shipyard’s Rendsburg facility. 

The towing of the hull from Kiel to Rendsburg marks a significant milestone in the new build project.

It took the power of two tugs to haul the hull from the Kiel facility on the shores of the Baltic Sea, setting off at 10am in the direction of Rendsburg. Black Shark’s hull passed through locks before entering the Kiel Canal where it spent three hours travelling at the maximum speed of 8 knots. It completed the landmark journey on the River Eider, arriving at the state-of-the-art facility in Rendsburg at 1:30pm.

The hull will be painted matte black to mimic the texture of the skin of a black shark (Carcharhinus obscurus). In contrast, the superstructure will wear a sporty, metallic silver color to complement the mast, which is cleverly designed to resemble a shark fin. 

The dark exterior color will wrap three decks which have been specifically designed by British studio Winch Design to emphasize the yacht’s voluminous 2,080GT.
