Created as the “far-ranging, soul-soothing window to the world”adventure-seeking BIG FISH offers her charter guests limitless horizons … literally as theislands of Tahiti, French Polynesia, cover an area equivalent to the size of Europe.
Characterised by a plumb bow, steel hull and floor-to-ceiling windows, her design is from Gregory C. Marshall Naval Architects and was the first boat from New Zealand company, Aquos Yachts in collaboration with iconic Kiwi builder, McMullen & Wing. Achieving the "fusion of luxury styling and expeditionary muscle", BIG FISH swept up the awards in her launch year, for everything from design and interiors to technical innovation.
Among her myriad features – such as a 22ft video wall, crow's nest for 360° views, and fold-down 11m beach platform at the stern – BIG FISH has five staterooms, including a superb full-beam master cabin with floor-to-ceiling windows, 270° views &private deck area, a helicopter landing pad, spa pool, two terraces, a wine cellar, two barbecues and a state-of-the art kitchen. Rather than plain teak, her decks are made of granite.
At 45m and carrying a 7.9m high-tech, jet drive tender of equal rugged quality, BIG FISH is the first in an advanced series of rugged but luxurious long-range cruisers from Aquos Yachts, built to encounter all kinds of climates and conditions and deliver her guestsunrivalled levels of comfort, wherever she roams.
In 2011, BIG FISH undertook an historic circumnavigation over one year, from Antarctica right up to the Amazon, over the top of Russia and along the Northeast Passage – making her the first luxury yacht to complete the Northeast Passage and the first vessel in history to complete a Polar Circumnavigation. With a 10,000 nautical mile range, there is no place too remote for BIG FISH.
During her maiden expedition, BIG FISH contributed to our understanding of the world's climate and environmental changes. Her SeaKeeper 1000 equipment monitored ocean, climate and weather changes and data was sent via satellite to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), while her journey was tracked online with images and footage from her onboard cameras and a remote-controlled chopper.
Taking advantage of her tropical island surroundings from April 2015, the "go anywhere, do anything" charter yacht BIG FISH will satisfy thrill seekers with her impressive arsenal of all the fun gear and latest high-tech toys, including game fishing equipment, 10 sets of scuba diving gear, kitesurfers, SeaDoo, wakeboards, kayaks, underwater camera and her own decompression chamber.
Captain Winston Joyce-Clarke and nine crew are multi-talented, applying their expertise to extend the BIG FISH charter experience: diving, beauty and massage therapy, fitness, game fishing, water skiing and more.
