Yachting Developments signs order for 38.7m sportsfisher superyacht

Known as Hull 1015, this is the second superyacht project signed by the shipyard in 12 months, and follows on from the order of 33.5m sloop Hull 1012 in September 2014.

New Zealand shipyard Yachting Developments is proud to announce the signing of a new order for a 37.8m sportsfisher superyacht. Known as Hull 1015, this is the second superyacht project signed by the shipyard in 12 months, and follows on from the order of 33.5m sloop Hull 1012 in September 2014. 
 
With the contract signed in July 2015, work on Hull 1015 will commence immediately with delivery set for 2017. Naval architecture and exterior design is by Michael Peters Yacht Design, with interior styling by New Zealand-based Below Decks Marine Interiors. Project management will be undertaken by Australian-based Motor Yacht Build.
 
Constructed entirely from carbon 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. Hull 1015 will be the second sportsfisher project the yard has worked on, following the 2012 launch of 27.4m Satu.
 
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, recognising that it is a country that builds world class yachts.” 
 
Hull 1015 will commence construction alongside 33.5m Hull 1012, which is now over half way complete, in Yachting Developments’ new state of the art shipyard facility. In addition to their superyacht work, 2015 has seen the yard launch two smaller new build projects: 37ft Anarchy, designed by Bakewell-White Yacht Design, and 36ft IMK-7, designed by Reichel/Pugh. The yard also has a busy refit order book with projects including the refit of the 22m iconic Kiwi yacht Windhaven, as well as residential and commercial projects including the composite roofing for a new luxury golf course.
