  1. Recently Spotted: 40M Yachting Developments Hull 1015

    New Zealand yard Yachting Developments launched their largest sportfish yacht to date coming on towards the end of November. Now, the near 40-meter all-carbon sportfish yacht is engaged in sea trials. From all indications, the sea trials are going decently and this yacht is expected to be handed over to her experienced owner before the end of this month. Once this happens, Yachting Developments Hull 1015 can officially claim title as world's largest sportfish yacht. Below, photos by Paige Cook show hull 1015 in action.
  2. The yacht was built for an avid international sportfisher owner. Michael Peters Yacht Design is on the exterior design of the yacht while the interior was done by Naylor Booth Associates along with Yachting Developments and the owner. The interior volume is around 267 GT making her a very spacious craft. She can accommodate as many as ten guests. The arrangement is setout with a master suite for the owner, a VIP, double and twin complete with pullman berths should suffice for the extra persons.
  3. Performance figure have not come back as yet but we know that onboard are a pair of MTU diesel engines each rated at 3,100 horse power. Her fuel tankage sees a capacity of approximately 40,000 LT! Hull 1015 is definitely going to be a true deep-sea fishboat with the ability to stay at sea for a long time. If needed, as many as six crew members will be onboard. This will be another feather in the cap of this Kiwi yard after successfully builder another large sportfish yacht at 27.4-meters called "Satu" in the past.
