The world’s most capable luxury superyachts for 2015 unveiled by McMullen & Wing

March 05, 2015

The prominent New Zealand superyacht manufacturer, McMullen & Wing, has unveiled a design partnership with three of the world’s leading yacht design studios. H2 Yacht Design, Vripack Naval Architecture and Greg Marshall were all tasked with developing new superyacht designs, which would reflect McMullen & Wing’s focus on building the world’s most capable luxury yachts.

The leaders of these three studios recently joined McMullen & Wing CEO Michael Eaglen in a global roadshow of the world’s main brokerage centres, giving yacht brokers a personal preview of the new designs and an insight into the personalities of the designers.

Jonny Horsfield, of London’s H2 Yacht Design, presented his design entitled BLADE, combining iconic H2 styling cues with very specific luxury expedition credentials: massive tenders, swimming pool, refreshing and flexible interior spaces and vast exterior decks.

Marnix Hoekstra and Bart Bouwhuis, owners and creative directors of the Netherlands’ Vripack Naval Architecture presented FLOW, a muscular yet highly styled family motor yacht featuring multiple new innovations including enclosed “beach house” on the aft deck, “gull wing lookouts” from the skylouge offering a unique perspective on the changing landscape outside and unique perforated window graphics personalised by the owner.

Greg Marshall, of Victoria British Columbia, Canada, presented his design entitled DIAMOND. In this design he built on the stellar success of 45m charter yacht BIG FISH and his current 50m also building at McMullen & Wing to release three size variants. While closely referencing many of the most popular and successful features of the previous designs, he has also developed the space planning and softened the styling for a distinctive 2015 look.

McMullen & Wing CEO Michael Eaglen also took the opportunity to remind brokers of the place McMullen & Wing has played in New Zealand’s yachting journey: from ocean racers and America’s Cup winners to super sailing yachts and luxury motor yachts. He went on to highlight the unique value of building in New Zealand with McMullen & Wing: the creative journey of developing a new yacht, the opportunity to cruise New Zealand’s beautiful coastline on handover, and the stunning nations of the South Pacific waiting to mark the perfect start of a new yacht’s world adventure.

M/Y Turquoise’s new owner requested that H2 Yacht Design refit the yacht with a more Plush look inspired by M/Y Talisman Maiton due to the fact that they have chartered M/Y Talisman Maiton (designed by H2) a few times and loved how she worked. The yacht has been designed for luxury yacht charter, the owners were avid charterers prior to this purchase. They loved how Talisman Maiton operated. They loved the crew also, so some ex Maiton crew have been brought in. This is to help give their clients the same treatment they received in a new refreshing interior.
