Yachting Developments in New Zealand has launched the 129-foot hull of what is believed to be the world’s largest all-carbon sportfish yacht. Delivery is expected in December.
The owner is a longtime fishing enthusiast who plans to use the yacht for extended cruising and fishing.
“Hull 1015 has proved an extremely enjoyable challenge to build,” Ian Cook, managing director of Yachting Developments, stated in a press release. “Her sheer scale alone makes her worthy of note, but as a project of passion she is something special. The yard team and I are proud to have been given the opportunity to have worked on this impressive vessel that is sure to turn heads wherever she goes.”
Naval architecture and exterior design are by Michael Peters Yacht Design, with interiors by Yachting Developments and Naylor Booth Associates.
Key details of Hull 1015: She accommodates 10 guests in four staterooms, and has quarters for six crew. A games room is on the lower deck, with twin tenders stowed forward. A Veem gyrostabilizer is on board for cruising in most weather, and power is a pair of 3,100-horsepower MTU diesels.
