FRANK NEUBELT / GERMANY
Award Winning Yacht Designer / Sustainable Technology & Design
Frank Neubelt is an internationally recognized and award-winning German yacht designer, who looks back on a long career in custom styling, concepts, naval architecture, layouts and yacht interiors. Founder and principle lead-designer of NEWCRUISE, his creativity made the company one of the most respected and influential German yacht design brands at that time. He is driven by a more sustainable future of yachting and is spearheading work in this area.
In 2000, Frank set up a partner company offering special project services, Yacht Design-Plus. This resulted in several award-winning super yachts followed by further significant concepts and projects in planning under the same label.
Frank left NEWCRUISE in 2012, and embarked upon a sailing break on his 45 year old Huisman before setting up his own studio-brand, Frank Neubelt • Yacht Designs. Frank’s studio is affiliated with the Hamburg design agency NC2 • German Yacht Project Cooperation, which Frank established with his long-term friend and business partner, Broder T. Hansen, a former commercial ship trader specialist.
NC2 is managed by Broder, working with Frank, design engineer Udo Haffner and hydrodynamic specialist Richard Anzböck to create high level custom motor and sailing yacht designs.
