Yachting Developments Started YD1015 Sea Trials

Largest sportfish yacht in the world spotted on sea trials. Yachting Developments have released photos of their 39.5-meter sportfisher YD1015 performing sea trials off the coast of New Zealand.

Launched on November 23, the world’s largest all-carbon sportfish yacht belongs to an international sports fisherman, who opted for Yachting Developments because of their expertise in yachts with carbon hull and superstructure, which are, in fact, considered to be the lightest and fastest of their kind.

Whilst Michael Peters Yacht Design was in charge of the exterior of the yacht, her “contemporary classic” interior was created by Naylor Booth Associate in collaboration with the owner himself. The layout sleeps 10 guests in four lower deck staterooms, including the owner’s master suite, and six members of the crew.

The scale of the 267GT boat allowed for commercial-grade of 3.100 HP MTU diesel engines, drawing on a fuel reserve of 40.000 litres, and advanced VEEM gyro stabilizers. Once completed, the sea trials will show, what speed the boat is actually capable of.
