Fraser adds Artefact to management fleet

Nov 7, 2018 by Triton Staff

Fraser has added M/Y Artefact, a 262-foot (80m) Nobiskrug, to its fleet of yachts under management.

Due for completion in 2019, the hybrid yacht previously known as Project 790 will be one of the first built under the new IMO Tier III low emissions regulations with an array of first-of-their-kind technology features and engineering advances, according to a company statement. These include the use of solar panels and a battery storage system allowing the vessel to operate for a limited time with no internal combustion engines operating. An electric pod propulsion combined with a position-keeping system can hold the yacht’s position without dropping anchor to protect the sea floor, and waste water can be re-used as technical water.

Artefact is a unique vessel that marries cutting-edge engineering and striking architectural design to embody a tribute to the nuances of human experience that are often overlooked or ignored,” stated build Capt. Aaron T. Clark.

Fraser is part of the Azimut-Benetti Group and offers services including yacht sales, charter, yacht management, crew and construction, with focus on yachts over 98 feet (30m). For more information, visit fraseryachts.com.
