Following the partnership with Yacht Club de Monaco (YCM) signed in February, Nobiskrug took part in the sixth edition of the Monaco Solar & Energy Boat Challenge, which took place from 2 to 6 July.

Thirty-four teams (14 nationalities) competed in the Solar, Energy and Offshore classes of the event organized in partnership with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and the International Powerboating Federation.

A key objective of the Monaco Solar & Energy Boat Challenge is to give a free rein to the creativity of student engineers and allow them to work with manufacturers to design, build and optimize new propulsion methods for tomorrow’s yachting, using only clean energy sources.

Team Nobiskrug – made up of Andrew Lea, a naval architect from Privinvest Holding (of which Nobiskrug is a subsidiary), Jan Luerkens, a naval architect at Nobiskrug, Vincent Gauthier, yacht broker at Barnes who piloted the boat during the event, and Vesna Blötz, Manager Marketing & Communications at Nobiskrug – competed in the event’s Energy Class, which YCM introduced in 2018 to compare clean energy sources such as electricity and hydrogen.
