Many people may know Yachting Developments as the builders of the highly successful 38m Sportsfisher Lanakai, but may not be aware that the steam at Yachting Developments are currently building another impressive 34m carbon-fibre sportsfisher.

This Warwick Yacht Design sportfisher is intended for long range international passages, so she carries 24,000 litres fuel with the ability to refuel/bunker while still at sea. The V16 engines, built to order by MTU, each developing 2,000hp, give a comfortable cruising speed in excess of 20 knots.

The exterior styling is in proportion, making it difficult to appreciate the vessel’s physical size, but the foredeck houses an amphibious 7m (23ft) RIB.

The open plan interior has accommodation for up to 10 guests in four cabins, plus dedicated crew accommodation. The deck layout features a large mezzanine cockpit above the fighting cockpit.

The fully enclosed, air-conditioned flybridge provides excellent visibility, while stabilisers and mega-size vertical interceptor trim tabs provide a comfortable ride and efficient trim while at sea.

Built to survey, the vessel features multiple watertight compartments, twin generators, twin water makers, saltwater ice makers, freshwater ice makers, large catch chillers and a live bait tank that could be mistaken for a small swimming pool.


Thanks to the clever use of carbon fibre and a weight saving interior, this vessel will deliver both high speed and long range.

If you are a skilled tradesperson and like boats, this could be your chance to become part of the Superyacht Industry  – Yachting Developments are now hiring electricians, cabinet makers, engineers, plumbers, laminators, boat builders and apprentices.
