Yachting Developments in New Zealand is working toward a 2017 delivery for this 127 foot Michael Peters design, expected to set a world record the minute she splashes. Both the shipyard and the designer are confident she will be the biggest sport-fish yacht ever built entirely of carbon.

The designer Michael Peters says “You don’t save weight to make a lighter boat. You save weight to add in all the stuff the guy wants to put on the boat.” “This is a trend that we’ve seen in all boats,” Peters says. “I don’t care if it’s 40 feet or 400 feet. A lot of things are no longer options. People with 40-foot boats want a gyrostabilizer now…”

VEEM are providing VEEM Gyros and also the complete shaft-line and propeller package for this project. It is very exciting for VEEM to be involved in a record breaking project like this, especially for an experienced owner who uses the yacht often and cruises extensively. Our aim is to make the owner and his guests as comfortable as possible, whatever the weather throws at them.
