New Zealand builder McMullen & Wing announced a contract to complete a 50m steel and aluminium expedition yacht with yard number 1016 to be delivered in early 2016.
The yacht will have a focus on live-aboard amenity, outdoor living and extended cruising range.
The contract follows the successful world cruising and charter record of 45m M/Y Big Fish built by McMullen & Wing in 2010.
Styling, naval architecture and engineering will be by the same collaborative effort of Gregory C Marshal Naval Architects and McMullen & Wing’s in-house design team.
The interior will be designed by Gregory C Marshall Naval Architects for up to 12 guests in 5 cabins.
