The New Zealand shipyard McMullen & Wing has revealed a design partnership with three of the world’s leading yacht design studios; H2 Yacht Design, Vripack Naval Architecture, and Greg Marshall. The heads of the three studios recently joined McMullen & Wing’s CEO Michael Eaglen on a global tour of some of the world’s top brokerage centres, giving brokers a personal preview of the new designs.
Jonny Horsfield of London’s H2 Yacht Design, presented his design entitled Blade, which combines iconic H2 styling with very specific luxury expedition credentials: massive tenders, a swimming pool, flexible interior spaces and vast exterior decks.
Marnix Hoekstra and Bart Bouwhuis, owners and creative directors of the Netherlands’ Vripack Naval Architecture, presented Flow, a muscular yet highly styled family motor yacht featuring multiple new innovations including an enclosed “beach house” on the aft deck, “gull wing lookouts” from the sky lounge, and unique perforated window graphics personalised by the owner.
Greg Marshall, of Victoria British Columbia, Canada, presented his design, Diamond. Using the 45 metre Big Fish as inspiration as well as his current 50 metre yacht being built at the McMullen & Wing facilities, the design will come in three size variants.
McMullen & Wing and the designers are now working together in the development of specifications for the new yachts, with pricing anticipated to be released to the brokerage community in the coming weeks.
