Written by

Having been recently moved from the ProFab shipyard, the 39.5-metre superyacht The Beast is nearing completion and is on target to be launched later this month. Delivery to her new owner - who is the previous owner of Akiko (previously VvS1) - is scheduled for late March. The hull and superstructure were transported separately to Foxton Beach and have since been welded together as she prepares for sea trials.  The Beast explorer yacht in Palmerston NorthPhoto: Andy Grocott
