A new breed of explorer yacht
- Equally at home in The Bahamas as among the icebergs of Alaska, Big Fish is a new generation of superyacht. She allows relaxed and informal travel to the most far-flung places on Earth.
- After launching from Auckland, New Zealand, she immediately set off with an ambitious year-long circumnavigation taking in Antarctica and the Arctic Northeast Passage. While very much an explorer, Big Fish is also defined by contemporary styling, an extremely high standard of luxury and brims with technical innovation.
- Masses of natural light pours through wide open spaces and floor-to-ceiling windows. From the bridge deck suite, you have 180° unimpeded views through huge side and aft-facing windows, which open out on to a private deck. Guests enjoy similar views in the saloon and dining area, while the three-storey atrium is also a design highlight.
- Befitting its expedition credentials, Big Fish is well equipped with kit including a fully custom long-ranging tender, dive gear, decompression chamber, jet skis, kayaks, kiteboards and more.
- Considerable attention has gone into reducing environmental impact and energy consumption. For example, the lighting throughout the vessel uses LED technology, the deck is epoxy-infused granite instead of teak, and the exhaust systems are used to heat water. Efficiency twinned with a 96,000 litre fuel capacity provides a range of 10,000 nautical miles.
Specialist dive platform
10 sets of dive gear and a decompression chamber make Big Fish a fantastic platform for a diving expedition.
Big Fish has a unique 8.5m aluminium tender with a range of over 200 nautical miles that is equipped with head and holding tanks, refrigerator and running water – ideal for a full day’s diving, river or mangrove exploration.
Streamlined surfaces coupled, a plum bow and focus on efficiency mean Big Fish has a 10,000-mile range and is capable of three full months of independent cruising.
Big Fish features a range of design innovations, from its capacious bow hold to fold down terraces on either side of the main deck and incredible expanses of glass.
