After an amazing effort by all involved Anarchy YD37 has hit the water. The video below details her launch, which took place on 14 March 2015.
"The entire experience, from design to rollout and launch has been an absolute pleasure - the second to none team at Yachting Developments make us proud to be Kiwis!!" - Andrew Reid, owner, Anarchy.
With just over a year until her scheduled delivery, work on 33.5m Hull 1012 is advancing well at Yachting Developments. The yard is now able to release new exterior renderings of the project, designed by Frers Naval Architecture.
Hull 1012 will be an elegant performance ocean cruising sloop, with an interior by Adam Lay Studio. In build for experienced owners and their family, her lifting keel will allow access to remote, shallow waters the world over.
Yachting Developments is now fully established in their new Hobsonville yard, following the official move in December 2015. The increased capacity the new facility offers is proving invaluable with the company’s busy yacht, refit and commercial order books.
In addition to Hull 1012, other work underway at the yard includes a 37ft Bakewell-White race boat (YD37) due to launch for her Kiwi owner in March 2015, and a confidential 36ft project for European owners due in May 2015.
In the refit and restoration division a long term refit project on the 22m Windhaven is also in progress. Designed and built by Col Wild in the 1940s, this iconic New Zealand yacht had been out of the water in various states of refit for more than a decade before being taken to Yachting Developments 18 months ago. The yard was chosen by her Kiwi owner thanks to their strong affiliation with classic boats and experience in this type of project.
Complementing their construction work, Yachting Developments is always proud to follow and support the activity of their fleet around the globe. Many are keen participants on the regatta scene and at the recent New Zealand Millennium Cup 2015, hosted for the first time in the Bay of Islands, no less than three Yachting Developments projects lined up to race.
As a silver sponsor of the event Yachting Developments was delighted to witness 37m Bliss, 33.8m Silvertip and iconic local boat 25m Steinlager 2 in action on their home waters. After some close fought racing Bliss came a very close second to eventual winner 50m Silencio, with Steinlager 2 winning the Pacific Cup division on the event.
Yachting Developments is proud to have been chosen as the builder for an all-kiwi project, a new 37ft Bakewell-White carbon racing yacht due to launch in March 2015.
The project is being built for owner Andrew Reid, whose previous yacht Django was lost at sea in 2014. Reid has drawn together a team of New Zealand companies including Yachting Developments, Bakewell-White Yacht Design, Doyle Sails New Zealand, Harken NZ, Hall Spars and Beacon Marine to work on this exciting project which will be ideal for both inshore and offshore racing.
This video from LiveSailDie provides a detailed overview of the project, including interviews from Ian Cook, Managing Director of Yachting Developments.
