Sportfish yacht Hull 1015 launched by Yachting Developments

Yachting Developments has this week launched its new 39.5m sportfish yacht, Hull 1015.

She left her Hobsonville shed in Auckland, New Zealand, the previous day before launching safely at high tide.

She is the largest all-carbon sportfish yacht in the world and will be delivered to her owner, who is a passionate fisherman, before the end of the year.

According to the yard, the owner chose Yachting Developments because of its experience in building sportfishing superyachts and expertise in carbon construction. Hull 1015’s all-inclusive fishing setup allows her to undertake extended fishing trips.

Michael Peters Yacht Design (MPYD) is responsible for both the naval architecture and the exterior design, while project management is being handled by Australian firm Motor Yacht Build.

Chris Critchett of MPYD commented, “As a fishing and diving platform the vessel is truly enormous, and she incorporates everything expected of a sizable motoryacht in a sleek sportfisherman’s profile.”

Spread over four decks, Hull 1015 is able to accommodate up to 10 guests and six members of crew. Among her key features is a lower-deck games room, an upper deck helm station and an extended aft cockpit.

Powered by a pair of 3,100hp MTU diesel engines, Hull 1015 has a total fuel reserve of 40,000 litres.
