  1. New Sportfisher Project From Yachting Developments Signed
    New Zealand yard Yachting Developments is having a great time when it comes to sportfisher yachts. They just delivered the world's largest carbon-built sportfisher called "Lanakai" at an astounding near 40-meters with a design by Michael Peters Yacht Design (MPYD) and built as hull 1015. This new build has a design by Warwick Yacht Design and will be designated hull 1017 when construction starts later this quarter.
  2. Yachting Developments are no strangers to building large sportfishing projects as their last delivery is testament but they also have the large sportfisher "Satu" under their belt as well. Hull 1017 will be built from carbon similar to hull 1015. With the project recently being signed, there is not alot of information available. She will have a pair of MTU 16V 2000 M96Ls onboard to power her speedy dashes between fishing grounds. No details have been released on the anticipated top-end speed at this early stage.
  3. The LOA is 33-meters with a beam of 7.5-meters and a draft of 1.5-meters being no issue. Ian Cook who is the Managing Director at Yachting Developments, was quoted as saying, "we are proud to have signed this exciting new project and look forward to collaborating with the Warwick Yacht Design office and their repeat client to bring this custom superyacht build to life." Not one but two fighting-chairs are envisioned to be installed on the aft main cockpit to facilitate tandem fights. Yachting Developments has not provided a delivery date at this stage. Stay tuned for more information on this new build in the coming months.
