The Travelling Bug II "Big Fish"

This MegaYacht since it was launched last summer by the New Zealand shipyard Aquos Yachts has been on the go exploring untouched and hard to get to places of the world. Big Fish is 148ft long and is one of the first type of yachts to be called a Luxury Expedition Vessel (LEV).
She is owned by Richard Beattie a British, Hong Kong based businessman. The designer that was involved to make the owners vision come to life was Greg Marshall. He has also designed the next yacht that is to be released by Aquos Yachts in 2012 is "Star Fish" 164ft that holds the same title of a luxury Expedition Vessel.
Big Fish from being launched left New Zealand and headed straight for Papeete in the Society Islands for the start of her exploration journeys. she has all ready visited the Antarctic and the Amazon and has plenty more trips lined up. Apart from being used by the owner she is available for charter and has more exotic places are in her schedule for the next year.

She is currently in Northern Europe and can be found on yacht tracker and moored at the island bornholm at the coastal town of Ronne. She will be in the Baltic sea until mid August when she will start to make her way down to the Med to attend the Monaco Yacht Show which start on the 21st of September.
She will stay in the Med until November before she heads across the Atlantic for the start of the Caribbean season. From here it it anyone's guess where her next stop will be. There was talk of plans to attempt the northeast passage across the top of Russia. This would be the first ever yacht crossing of the northeast passage.

Some features of this great yacht is it has a range of 10,000nm which means it can circumnavigate the globe by only having to stop once to refuel. she has 5,500sq ft of living space and with a beam of 32ft.
Other features include a gym, jacuzzi, and a 28ft tender that can bring you even closer to those icebergs. She has 5 guest cabins that can accommodate up to 10 guests and with a crew of 12 who will ensure that you will have an unforgettable experience. Keep a look out on yacht tracker to see if she comes to a place near you. More information and the Captains Blog for Big Fish can be found at the Aquos Yachts web site:
