German yard Nobiskrug has launched their newest superyacht to the world. She has been known as hull 790 under construction or Project ‘Artefact’. However, her final name is “Artefact” as well.
After approximately 18-months under construction, the new archaeological find was finally unearthed for the world to see. Designed by Gregory Marshall on the exterior and Reymond Langton on the interior, this vessel brings a totally new perspective on aesthetic design.
One of the major elements of this superyacht is the immense utilization of glass and also the insane angles and geometry involved in the installation of the panels. The central glass atrium is a statement piece comprised of 60 tonnes of glass work.
Artefact is also big on using alternate sources for power generation as well as regeneration of power. She has solar power embedded and uses large battery banks. There is a waste-water recycling system onboard. DC-bus diesel-electric Azipod propulsion set up by ABB. She is also fitted with Dynamic Positioning system to keep her fixed on a location without the utilization of her anchors; handy if floating over sensitive bottom areas.
The vessel has been built with steel for the hull and composite superstructure, likely utilized to accept the varying shapes of glass. On the interior great measure has been taken to reduce the transfer of noise and also vibration. Meanwhile, guest accommodation and owner accommodation are going to be very quiet. In fact the master suite is not even located in the conventional forward main deck or overlooking-bow position. It is situated on one of the aft decks. Artefact will now be prepared for builder’s and compliance trials before being delivered for this Summer. She is expected to be displayed at the 2019 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS).
