The hull of 38m maxi sportfish yacht 1015 has emerged from its shed at Yachting Developments’ shipyard in New Zealand.
Built as an all-carbon fast planing yacht, she is due to be launched in the next 12 months according to reports from Yachting Developments. She emerged from the shed recently to have her engines fitted, before the bridge is fitted by the end of the year.
The order was placed by an experienced owner who is described as an international sportfisherman. Yachting Developments say he chose the yard for its expertise in carbon construction, and experience in the world of sportfishing superyachts, including 27m Satu.
Naval architecture and exterior design for the vessel was completed by Michael Peters Yacht Design; the vessel is then being project-managed by Motor Yacht Build. Details of her interior layout have yet to be revealed, however they are being developed by design studio and fellow New Zealand business, Below Decks Marine.
Standout features on board the yacht include an upper deck helm station, extended aft cockpit and tender storage located on the foredeck. There will also be al fresco dining space on board and seating on the main deck for up to ten people.
The 1015 will be powered by two 3,140hp MTU diesel engine, enabling her to reach a fast speed out on the water.
