McMullen & Wing in New Zealand has released new renderings and layout options for the 50m steel expedition yacht Big Star.

Big Star is a big sister to the popular expedition charter yacht 45m Big Fish. Designed in partnership between McMullen & Wing and Gregory C Marshall Naval Architects, the latest designs for Big Star bring together all the capabilities of a proven offshore explorer yacht with all the comforts of the finest superyachts. The first impression from the new renderings is of an elongated and elegant yet masculine and purposeful exterior profile. The superstructure, clad in glass panels, presents a strong graphic motif.

Inside, two layout options provide either the ultimate owner-focused expedition yacht or an ideal charter arrangement. Both versions share essentially the same styling. The Luxury Expedition version has a breathtaking owners’ suite on the bridge deck aft, opening onto its own private aft deck overlooking the splash pool. The charter-focused version offers a full-beam master suite on the main deck forward, making room for a spectacular skylounge and bar on the bride deck.

The designs being promoted are only a selection of a wide range of layout and styling options McMullen & Wing has assembled to tempt interested buyers. There is full scope for a new owner to bring their own influence to the interior layout and design of this masculine, modern design which is already equipped with an immaculate engine room and a comprehensive inventory.

With an asking price of $30 million through Burgess, Big Star can be launched in less than two years.
