Hard Times for Nobiskrug: The Shipyard Files for Insolvency
According to German media, the Nobiskrug has filed for insolvency. The Covid-19 pandemic made its mark on the shipyard’s financial performance, for example, it announced layoffs for 120 employees last year. According to Nobiskrug, the parent company Privinvest – an international shipbuilding group – had invested almost 180 million euros in Rendsburg in recent years in order to secure ongoing business without receiving a return. Privinvest will support its other shipbuilding units in Germany and try to secure as many jobs as possible there. Nobiskrug did not provide any further information.Economics Minister Bernd Buchholz (FDP) emphasized that the situation in the shipyard landscape is very difficult overall. He hoped for opportunities during the bankruptcy proceedings. "There are still various possibilities that can create prospects for the workforce and for the company itself," said the minister.German shipyard Nobiskrug was founded in 1905. Recognised today as one of the world’s foremost builders of spectacular fully custom superyachts, the shipyard is famous for the 92m Tatoosh, the award-winning 68m Sycara V, the 74m Mogambo, the 143m industry-changing Sailing Yacht A, and the environmentally innovative 80m Artefact.Credits: Nobiskrug
Model Y Tesla Yacht – What We Know Now
Tesla is all about innovation. With the massive changes they’ve made to the automotive and space industries, they couldn’t miss out on ocean exploration. At the end of 2017, Tesla announced the yacht project, Model Y.She’s going to be the world’s first electric, self-sustaining yacht. As a luxury vessel she will feature a range of amenities and perform in complete silence. With a length of 40 meters, her exterior is sharp and interior spacious.The design will follow Tesla’s principles and the ‘outside-the-box’ strategy. She looks massive from the outside, but she will have only two decks. The lower deck will have an open space for massive parties. A spacious spa will also be added. A lounge, bar, dining room and cabins are also planned. In terms of performance, she will be fast: speed and comfort all the way. A large solar panel will charge two lithium batteries to power the vessel. The yacht's turbine will take all incoming waves and movements and transform them into energy, which is then circulated through an electrical current that powers the yacht. It’s just a matter of time before the famous Tesla logo will be seen in marinas and the open sea.
