38.7m Hull 1015 entering final stage of construction at Yachting Developments as superstructure is joined to hull

Hull 1015, the 38.7m sportsfisher in build at New Zealand yard Yachting Developments, is now entering its final stages of construction. On 8 April 2017 the yacht’s impressive superstructure left its construction bay before being returned to the shed to be joined to the hull and for completion work.

Delivery for Hull 1015 is set for Q3 of 2017. Naval architecture and exterior design is by Michael Peters Yacht Design, with interior styling by the owners and the yard team. Interior work is being produced by Yachting Developments’ specialist in-house interior team, with structural engineering and design also by Yachting Developments.

This huge motor yacht, being built for a passionate fisherman and experienced yacht owner, is on a scale never seen before in sportsfishers and will be the largest all-carbon sportsfisher in the world on her delivery. Now in one complete part the sheer scale of this incredible yacht is fully apparent.

“It is always gratifying to see a project start coming together in its finished form and this transformational stage of the build of Hull 1015 is a tangible reminder of what a unique and exciting project this is,” said Ian Cook, Managing Director of Yachting Developments. “We are looking forward to her launch later this year.”
