GYC - „German Yacht Couture“ – featured by FRANK NEUBELT YACHT DESIGNs.

Passion in designing yachts one day stood for the studied naval architect and trained ship- and boatbuilder over the years of offshore racing still sailing on his in 1969 Huisman built family yacht for an exciting and varied career.

Stepping into the field of super yachts at the beginning of the first decade of the new century, the success of his 1990 founded design studio led him to expand the label to a real project design house NEWCRUISE-Yacht-Projects & Design by inviting a young partner taking care about the economics and the inhouse work-out design team management of naval architecture and Interior decoration.  

Frank ´s creativity in lead as the studio´s design director turned NCYPD to become one of the most internationally recognized German Super yacht project houses at that time.

Several yachts from his “pen” such as the 74m SIREN, TRIPLE-SEVEN, SAPPHIRE, GAYA, VICTORIA DEL MARE OPIUM and one of the largest explorer vessels, the 115 m LUNA, received international recognition and acclaim when they nominated for outstanding awards and Frank stepped under his earlier label on the stage at several international design award galas honoring the creativity of his yacht designs and the studio´s profession, originating from his home country which is more known for  the construction of world-class super yachts in quality and excellence.

 

Another key of passionate enthusiasm focuses on developing timeless yachts with a “character” at economically hull lines, such as his 2003 innovation of setting up one of the very first hull “plateform” - concept of a “time to cost” steel-composite construction which was technical successfully optimized by Nobiskrug Yachts and used in theirs further yachts MOGAMBO, ODESSA & PLAN-B.

In summary, Frank´s portfolio of 45 yachts launched under his earlier label, among them the legendary LUNA, includes 70 concepts of Motor and Sailing yachts as well , - mostly all with initiated individuell interior themes.

His time a head 2010 innovation concept study of the very first idea of an 150m YACHT-LINER just inspired the newly Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection Group who is creating a similarly own concept for theirs fleet under construction of 190m/250 pax luxury cruise liners.   Frank`s most complex project so far since the launch of his very first superyacht, the 34m XANADU in the 90-ties, a well recognized Moonen yacht. As an avid offshore sailor, he created aside a small but fine selection of generous custom sailing yachts from 40 to over 100 feet such like the 26m OPIUM, the later 2012 launched 36m LUNAR and his interior design acquisition for the 46m, 2014 design awarded Vitters/Dubois Racer-Cruiser, - GANESHA II and the 60m MY. ROMA.

 

The effects of the world’s economic change influenced Frank’s 2012 future visions which finally left him no other choice than to leave his brand “Newcruise” falling short needed business and management adjustments.
