Aquos Yachts 147' Expedition "Big Fish"Going Boldly Where Only Penguins Go! by Capt. Chuck Gnaegy and YF Publisher Carl Camper Want to get away? Really-Really-Ahh-Way? How about the Ends of the Earth? Antarctica; the ice-covered South Pole? Brr-rr, yet warm enough to support armies, zillions of penguins, seals, whales, and other denizens? Or, perhaps the steaming Amazon, that fabled jungle river brimming with notorious mysteries; and piranhas? Then, the world’s ultimate summit; the Northeast Passage at the high crest of Russia, the North Pole and through the Arctic Circle? Anywhere else; you name it. BigFish, the luxury expedition vessel by newly inaugurated Charter company Aquos; gets you there. Fascinating journeys; other ultimate possibilities – Tahiti, Patagonia, New Pomerania, Mount Erebus Volcano – lurk attractively for the sea’s most unique, far-away-escape vessel, awaiting your consummate choice. New Zealand charterer Aquos debuts this exciting new 147’ luxury expedition yacht, for the very wild at heart. She’s BigFish, another excellent work of sea-going mastery, designed by highly creative Naval Architect Gregory Marshall. This sea-going marvel is here, ready to thrill you. Produced by New Zealand’s noted McMullen & Wing shipyard, BigFish was delivered eager to sail anywhere in the world; to Earth’s oceans in far-off planetary climes. Just launched, her maiden voyage to Tahiti, then Fort Lauderdale; outfitted to splash into unlimited adventure, bathed in sumptuous luxury unique in the Expedition Cruising World. She’ll captivate her charterers with far-away places and strange sounding names; exploits few travelers will ever have the opportunity to experience over a lifetime of adventure. A buxom, robust expedition vessel, she exhibits rugged strength; unlike the usual pedicured super yachts with cocktail glass curves. Broad-shouldered BigFish boasts all-around large glass windows of three-quarter inch thick tempered glass; decks/floors of epoxied granite. Steel hull. Aluminum superstructure. Yet her central lounge features an astounding, theater-size, plasma HD video wall 24 feet tall! In other measures, the ‘Fish has a 39’ wide swim platform; and a 29’ on-board launchable tender with a 300-mile range.
