Ready to ply the world’s waters with panache, McMullen & Wing’s 164-foot Y/N 1016 expedition motor yacht is sailing through its sea trials. The commissioned cruiser is the largest yacht built to date by the New Zealand boatbuilder and the second in the company’s Diamond series—designed by Gregory C. Marshall Naval Architect—which debuted with the award-winning, 147-foot yacht Big Fish in 2010. With the latter having already logged over 100,000 nautical miles (including voyages to Antarctica), McMullen & Wing’s latest wonder is sure to excel at global exploration.

Currently still carrying the name of its shipyard number, Y/N 1016 divides luxurious interiors across three decks. An additional two levels, the sundeck and crow’s nest, are dedicated to outdoor pursuits. Accommodations for up to 12 passengers include 4 guest cabins, a multi-use cabin that can be easily converted for entertaining, and the owner’s suite (sequestered on the bridge deck) with its own private outdoor lounge area. A lowered aft cockpit (ideal for fishing and sunbathing) flows into the aft deck, which is positioned close to the water for easy recreational access.

A range of 6,000 nautical miles (traveling at 10 knots) and a maximum cruising speed of 14 knots is made possible by two 1,000 hp Caterpillar diesel engines with ZF gearboxes and five-blade ZF propellers. Delivery to the owner is expected in the second quarter of this year. (mcmullenandwing.com)
