    No details have been given so far about this yacht that was recently sold by the yard. The LOA isn't even confirmed either but it is north of 100-meters. The yard may be waiting until Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) to disclose a bit more information...or not. For now we do not have a timeline for the build or any renders.

    Is she scheduled for technical launch this month? I have found some articles talking about that, but looks like rumour only especially with recent NOBISKRUG financial troubles...

    The latter part of what you said there is important to take into account.

    I'll admit I'm new to yachting, but I've never seen a yacht this size with a GRP superstructure.

    There are a few larger boats that have GRP superstructure on a steel hull.

    74-meter "Laurel" if my memory serves me correct has a steel hull and GRP superstructure.

    This has to be done to save weight, if so, why aren't other yachts using GRP to build superstructures with instead of aluminium?

    GRP vs aluminium structures often work out to be similar in weight once designed accordingly for each material.
    I'd have thought main benefits would be vibration damping for reduced interior noise levels and ease of creating curved or unusual shapes.
    Drawbacks include possibility of off-site construction as not many yards have facilities and workforce to build in metal and GRP.
    Fire protection measures would be similar for both.

    FRP is superior to aluminum in most cases. If you compare the gross weight in the construction phase, it seems similar, but the aluminum structures need much more filler to be brought to yacht standard. Forming surfaces can be better prefinished in GRP. This reduction in filler also reduces the amount of unwanted cracks in the surfaces.

    FRP superstructures can be assembled after the hot work is completed. This allows them to run in parallel with the shipyard's outfitting phases. This offers possibilities e.g. the bulwark can be equipped in open condition and only closed afterwards.

    Another advantage is the lower maintanence of GRP because of its better resistance to corrosion.

    Just to name a few and of course only my 2 cents...
