Aquos Yachts: 50-meter "Star Fish"

I think it would be good to start a thread for the "Star Fish" which is now about or under eighteen months from completion. If you thought "Big Fish" was radical, Star Fish will really be a cut above her especially as it relates to the outdoor spaces.

Specially prepared Granite! If you read our review on the "Big Fish" that would be apparent to you

http://www.yachtforums.com/forums/aq...-big-fish.html

There's a quote from the details section of the review...

Quote:
Granite decks have a fiberglass backing, infused with epoxy, then treated with silicone that is vacuumed into the stone and causes water to bead, as opposed to saturating the stone. Prior to choosing granite over teak, it was tested for durability, heat, etc. The unusual combination turned out to be warmer than expected; however, test pieces were not backed up with metal, such as the steel on the decks or the aluminum on the superstructure. A pleasing expense note: installation time is approx one-forth the time for granite decks compared to traditional teak decks.

If things are really on track, she should be launched maybe in even or eight months? as she was slated to be launched at the end of 2011 and completed in 2012.

As you know the "Star Fish" is going to be bigger than the "Big Fish" by about 5-meters or so. This will allow for a sixth stateroom as well as space to carry a small submarine or even a seaplane and other extra capacity.

Yes, part of the stern platform will slide out to extend the platform to become extra space for outdoor furniture or to be used as a dock for the toys etc. When this happens it reveals a cavitywhich can become a pool, I believe filled by the ocean around.

"Star Fish", well the remains there-of, is for sale now... It is really sad considering this boat was nearly 80% completed at the time of the fire and would have been ready for March 2013.

In need of a new superstructure and interior, the Star Fish yacht could be launched in 18 months, offering a new owner an outstanding high volume custom expedition yacht, fully warranted by her original award-winning New Zealand shipyard, at a very substantial discount from normal new build cost.
