McMullen and Wing, an Auckland based custom yacht builder, has introduced a new vessel in the yacht fraternity by the name of Big Fish. This extraordinary 45m explorer yacht consists of a full displacement steel hull and aluminum superstructure flaunting strong exterior lines. This bold looking beautiful yacht also includes a plum bow and huge foredeck. With the exteriors and interiors designed by Gregory C. Mashall Naval Architects, the yacht was launched in the waters on the 31st March.

Almost 10 guests can sleep in the yacht featuring five suites. There is a full-beam owner’s stateroom on the bridge deck and four guest staterooms situated on the hull deck, which can be easily converted into two VIP full-width staterooms.

The generous exteriors of Big Fish boast of decks that are made with infused stone. One can also enjoy the wide beach aft deck by combining the huge swim platform and aft bulwarks. Another interesting characteristic of Big Fish is a 28ft aluminum diesel jet tender. Arranged on the foredeck, this tender is seen when the deck is lifted vertically due to the hydraulic rams. The yacht also offers transport facility for diving spots and exploration voyage.

Big Fish which was shifted from its construction shed last week is supported by double Caterpillar engines. These engines allow the yacht to move at an excellent speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 10 knots. Big Fish is built to traverse distances as long as three months with a range of 10,000 miles. In the upcoming three weeks, Big Fish is expected to have its hardtop and mast placed before it is submitted to its owner in May.
