McMullen and Wing releases changes for Big Star


New Zealand-based McMullen & Wing has released new renderings and layout options for its 50m steel expedition M/Y Big Star. It is partially completed at the builder’s yard in Auckland and listed with Peter Brown of Burgess in London. It has an asking price of $30 million.

Designed in partnership between McMullen & Wing and Gregory C Marshall Naval Architects, the latest designs continue the styling for which her forerunner, M/Y Big Fish, was known.  

Inside, two layout options provide for an owner-focused expedition yacht or charter arrangement.
