Yachting Developments has delivered its 39.5-metre (130-foot) maxi sportfish yacht YD1015 to its owner, who has named it Lanakai.
Widely considered to be the largest all-carbon sportfish yacht in the world, Yachting Developments says Lanakai was ordered in 2015 by an international sportfisherman who chose the yard because of its “expertise in carbon construction”.
The carbon hull and superstructure should make for a faster, more streamlined sportfish yacht compared to others on the water. Michael Peters Yacht Design (MPYD) is responsible for both the naval architecture and the exterior design, while Australian firm Motor Yacht Build handled project management.
In a statement, MYPD commented, “As a fishing and diving platform the vessel is truly enormous, and the substantial scale also allowed for commercial-grade power and systems along with the latest in gyro stabilisation to ensure comfort and performance for many years to come.”
Interior design was developed by Naylor Booth Associates, who worked in collaboration with the owner’s team and the in-house designers at Yachting Developments. The décor is described by the yard as “contemporary classic”.
Accommodation on Lanakai is for up to 10 guests split between four lower deck staterooms, including an amidships master suite, a VIP suite, a double cabin and a twin cabin with Pullman berths, while the crew quarters allow for up to six staff.
Power comes from a pair of 3,100hp MTU diesel engines, drawing on a total fuel reserve of 40,000 litres, while VEEM gyro stabilisers should ensure a smooth cruising experience.
Speaking last month Ian Cook, managing director of Yachting Developments, said, “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 work on this impressive vessel that is sure to turn heads wherever she goes.”
