New 37.8-meter Sportfish Yacht Order Signed By Yachting Developments

New Zealand builder Yachting Developments just announced that they have signed an order for a brand new Sportfish luxury yacht. With an LOA of 37.8-meters, this sportfish yacht will be second vessel of its kind built by Yachting Developments after the 27.4-meter "Satu" and also alot larger too. To be built under hull number 1015 she becomes the second order in 12-months for the New Zealand-based builder. Of course the other order is presently under construction as hull 1012, a 33.5-meter sloop vessel.

A look at the new hull #1015 sportfish shows off a design by Michael Peters, who is also responsible for the Naval Architecture. The interior however, is by Below Decks Marine Interiors of New Zealand. This yacht is being built for an experienced owner and will exist on three full internal decks. Construction is anticipated to start immediately and it is constructed entirely from carbon fiber. The yacht is being built for an experienced owner who is an international sportsfisherman. The owner approached the yard due to a number of factors, including their expertise in carbon and experience with similar projects. “It is exciting to have two such different new build projects underway, which each showcase the wide skillset we have here at the yard,” said Ian Cook, Managing Director of Yachting Developments. “We are of course very pleased that the owner of Hull 1015 has chosen to work with a New Zealand shipyard, recognizing that it is a country that builds world class yachts.” Power will come via twin MTU 3140 Horse Power marine diesels.
