This morning in sunny Auckland, New Zealand Yachting Developments launched its new 39.5-metre motor yacht project known as Hull 1015. The vessel is the world’s largest full-carbon sportsfisher and was built to adhere to the experienced owner’s fishing requirements and personal tastes.

The custom interior by Yachting Developments and Naylor Booth Associates covers four decks and allows for up to 10 overnight guests. The contemporary interior is finished with several classical touches and set up for the comfort of family life on board and includes a games room on the lower deck.

Her sheer scale alone makes her worthy of note, but as a project of passion she is something special,” says Ian Cook, Managing Director of Yachting Developments

The yard team and I are proud to have been given the opportunity to have worked on this impressive vessel that is sure to turn heads wherever she goes.

Two tenders will be stowed on the foredeck and can be launched and retrieved through a crane mounted on the deck. VEEM supplied the gyro stabiliser that will keep Hull 1015 composed when the sea state picks up.
