McMullen and Wing Project 1016
McMullen & Wing says its New Zealand shipyard is on schedule for delivering a 164-foot expedition yacht in early 2016.
The yacht, known as yard project 1016, has exterior styling and interior design by Gregory C. Marshall Naval Architects. Originally, the project was known as StarFish, an evolution of the 147-foot Aquos Big Fish. StarFish suffered damage in the shipyard during a 2012 fire that did not affect the hull or engine room. The remains of that boat have now evolved into project 1016 that is continuing construction.
Project 1016 is expected to have a lowered, protected aft cockpit for fishing and lounging almost at water level. Stowage is designed for an extensive fleet of tenders and toys. Five staterooms will accommodate 12 guests with the master suite on the bridge deck aft, opening to a private aft deck. Interior features will include balconies framed by floor-to-ceiling glazed doors in the dining area.
