  1. 39-meter 'The BEAST' By Profab Engineering
    Profab Engineering is a yard that doesn't receive alot of coverage but they are a facility in New Zealand that does aluminium work on yachts. You may remember that back in 2011 they built one of their largest vessels, the "Black Pearl" and in 2008 they launched the "Adagio". These yachts put them on the superyacht map, so-to-speak. Right now the yard is working on a nearly 40-meter aluminum catamaran-hulled motoryacht that they refer to as "The BEAST".
  2. Exterior design as well as Naval Architecture is being handled by LOMOcean and the interior is a collaboration between Oceania Interiors and the owner. The exterior has a very rugged look to it especially with the proposed naval dazzle-style paint job. The tri-deck arrangement and the plethora of toys also lend to a small warship appearance. One of the toys onboard will be a very large tender for a yacht of this size. In fact it will be a custom-built sportfisher. The BEAST is envisioned to carry a 43-foot sportfisher to aid in fishing expeditions.
  3. Onboard, the interior will sleep as many as twelve guests. Five cabins will sleep the guests including a dedicated twin that has pullmans as well as four doubles that can be arranged as twins if needed. Ten crew will be accommodated onboard too. Power will come from a pair of CAT C32 diesels with fuel tankage for 76,000 LT. We talked about tenders earlier but aside from the 13-meter sportfisher, The BEAST can accommodate a 9-meter amphibious tender as well as a smaller 4.5-meter rescue RIB. The yard recently flipped the hull, a major milestone, and now can concentrate on the fitout of the vessel before delivery in early 2019.
