The adventurous 45m (147ft) Megayacht Big Fish that was launched in 2010 by McMullen & Wing will be returning to her birth place in New Zealand for a refit in September. McMullen & Wing will be collaborating with Diverse Projects Ltd on her four month refit and maintenance period to ensure that Big Fish remains in the pristine condition that has made her one of the most traveled yachts in modern times, and among the most active charter yachts since her delivery in July 2010.

If you think of the most beautiful exotic and out of the way places in the world the chances that Big Fish has been there are pretty high. Some of the places and trips she has been to over the last 2 years are:
  • Antarctica
  • Falkland Islands
  • Argentina
  • Circumnavigation of South America
  • Galapagos
  • Amazon
  • Brazil
  • Caribbean
  • Sweden & Scandinavia
  • London
  • Med
  • US
  • Bahamas
  • Tahiti and the South Pacific

She is currently in the South Pacific where she is available for charter until the end August, then she will start to make her way back to NZ for her refit. By the time she arrives in NZ she will have completed over 60,000nm of world cruising, what an achievement.

Whilst in Auckland, Big Fish will receive a fresh coat of paint as well as a full service of her electrical and mechanical systems. Also receiving a new coat of paint and a thorough mechanical service will be her extraordinary, all purpose, custom aluminium tender Triple Ripple. She will be chartering again over the Christmas and New Year period in the cooler water of New Zealand, and then she will make her first visits to Asian ports in Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and other Asian Superyacht ports.

Big Fish is currently for sale through Y.CO and is available for purchase at the recently reduced price of $25m USD. For more updates and stories on Big Fish visit the Aquos Yachts web site at:
