The Hull 1015 is the second superyacht project signed by the shipyard in 12 months. It follows the order of the 33.5m sloop Hull 1012 in September 2014.

With the contract signed in July 2015, work on Hull 1015 will commence immediately with delivery set for 2017. Naval architecture and exterior design is by Michael Peters Yacht Design, with interior styling by New Zealand-based Below Decks Marine Interiors.

Constructed entirely from carbon the yacht is being built for an experienced owner, who is an international sportsfisherman. Hull 1015 will be the second sportsfisher project the yard has worked on following the 2012 launch of 27.4m Satu.

“It is exciting to have two such different new build projects underway, which each showcase the wide skillset we have here at the yard,” says Managing Director of Yachting Developments Ian Cook. “We are of course very pleased that the owner of Hull 1015 has chosen to work with a New Zealand shipyard, recognising that it is a country that builds world class yachts.”

Hull 1015 will begin construction alongside Hull 1012, which is now over half way complete, in Yachting Developments’ new state of the art shipyard facility.

In addition to their superyacht work, 2015 has seen the yard launch two smaller new build projects: 37-foot Anarchy, designed by Bakewell-White Yacht Design and 36ft IMK-7, designed by Reichel Pugh. The yard also has a busy refit order book with projects including the refit of the 22m iconic Kiwi yacht Windhaven, as well as residential and commercial projects including the composite roofing for a new luxury golf course.
