Yachting Developments completes sea trials on Quintessential

Auckland boatyard, Yachting Developments has successfully completed sea trials on Quintessential, a 30.48m sailing superyacht catamaran, delivering her to her owner less than three weeks after launching.

Also known as yard build number YD66, Quintessential is one of the largest composite sailing Superyacht catamarans in the World, measuring 100ft (30.48m) in length with a 48 feet (14.63m) beam.

The vessel is built to meet and exceed stringent GL class survey requirements, including high-strength construction and light weight post-cured epoxy Eglass/carbon fibre incorporating foam sandwich technology.

Powered by twin 455hp engines, Quintessential cruises under power at 10 to 12 knots.  Maximum speed recorded under power is 14 knots at wide open throttle.

The carbon fibre mast was built by Southern Spars NZ and stepped at Yachting Developments yard at Hobsonville prior to launching. The sails were custom built by Doyles NZ.

Yachting Developments teamed up with Auckland based Superyacht Interiors New Zealand (SINZ) in creating a traditional teak interior and spacious outdoor entertainment/bar area.

Naval architecture and exterior styling is by Warwick Yacht Design, interior design is by Redman Whiteley Dixon and the owners representation has been provided by Newport based Marine Construction Management (MCM).

Quintessential has now embarked on her maiden voyage cruising the pacific.
