  1. YD1015 Sportfish Delivered; Named "Lanakai"
    As promised, New Zealand builder Yachting Developments delivered their latest yacht before the end of the year (2017). The yacht they were working on for the past few years was a sportfish yacht made from carbon and built under their construction number YD1015. The yacht now delivered represents the largest Carbon-built sportfish vessel in the world. Every-since launch her name boards on her sides were covered up and no visible name on her transom. Now we can tell you that her final name is "Lanakai".
  2. The design of this yacht has come from the design boards of Michael Peters Yacht Design (MPYD). She was built for an avid sportfisherman owner who loves that sport and the idea of having a luxurious platform to do it from. The owner chose Naylor Booth Associates in cooperation with Yachting Developments to formulate, arrange and style the interior. Onboard, there is sleeping room for up to ten guests. A full-beam master suite, a VIP-grade cabin and a twin berth with pullmans support the rest of the guests.
  3. Lanakai is powered by twin MTUs rated at 3,100 horse power each drawing from a more-than-impressive total fuel capacity of 40,000 LT. She is not only powerful but comfortable. Owing to her immense size as a sport fish yacht, it allowed for the installation of proper commercial-grade equipment. This was elaborated on by MPYD, "As a fishing and diving platform the vessel is truly enormous, and the substantial scale also allowed for commercial-grade power and systems along with the latest in gyro stabilization to ensure comfort and performance for many years to come."
