Hugo Schubert was born in Norrköping in 1863 and died in 1954 at age of 91. At the age of 25 Schubert is graduated at Chalmers Institute of Goteborg. The following year, in 1889, Schubert worked as a naval architect in the shipyard Southampton Stockholm. In 1898 he was appointed director of the shipyard in Stockholm Malar, holding a position of great prestige. In 1906 he founded the Saltsjöbadens Shipyard, on the plot of Black Creek in Saltsjöbaden, near Stockholm. Right here in his shipyard Schubert designs and manufactures most of the most beautiful boats, including a series of 10 steel cruisers. The construction of these yachts with a steel hull began in 1912 with the creation of Alba. Currently there are only 6 of these legendary boats, which were called 'Schubertkryssare', translated 'Schubert’s cruiser'. In 1924, Schubert closes his Shipyard to follow and direct another important site in Stockholm. Hugo Schubert had, therefore, a life of great success.

Bo Bergstrom, a journalist of the magazine of the MYS, Motor Yacht Society, in an article wrote: "...
