Lars Windhorst completes Nobiskrug takeover

The long saga of the Nobiskrug insolvency has finally come to a close, as Lars Windhorst, founder and owner of the Tennor Group, which owns both Nobiskrug and Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG), took over the shipyard. Henceforth, the companies within the Tennor Group will work under one administration while operating from their own locations.Nobiskrug takeover - Philipp Maracke and Lars WindhorstIt is the intention of the group to share the skills and knowledge of each division, providing the specialists from FSG with merchant and naval experience access to the specialists in the superyacht division and vice versa. The main areas of collaboration will be in design, purchasing and administration and a total of 645 employees will work together across the locations.
