New Zealand yard Yachting Developments has announced that it has taken an order for a 33-metre (108-foot) sportsfish yacht.
YD1017, as the project is currently known, will be built from carbon fibre with construction beginning in the next two months. The yard has not disclosed a delivery date, but the naval architecture and exterior styling were contributed by local design house Warwick Yacht Design.
Ian Cook, managing director of Yachting Developments, commented, “We are proud to have signed this exciting new project and look forward to collaborating with the Warwick Yacht Design office and their repeat client to bring this custom superyacht build to life.”
This marks the sixth project that Yachting Developments and Warwick Yacht Design have collaborated on. Previous highlights include the 30.5-metre (100-foot) sailing yacht Quintessential, which launched back in 2012.
Further details are currently scarce, but the yard has confirmed that power will come from a pair of 2,000hp MTU 16V2000 M96L engines.
For the interior, Warwick Yacht Design will collaborate with the yard’s in-house designers and the owner’s team to create the décor.
YD1017 follows on from the yard’s recent launch, the 39.5-metre (130-foot) Lanakai, which was delivered in December 2017.
