Superyacht Weta set to be completed in New Zealand

The news arrived a couple of weeks ago that the hull number 228 which was under construction at Marco Yachts arrived in Auckland, New Zealand after a long journey over the Pacific.

Originally created for an European owner and known under another project name, this future superyacht is now (temporarily?) called Weta. Her Kiwi billionaire owner, who has owned several motor yachts, has decided to complete the construction of his latest yacht in New Zealand.

At the beginning of the project some years ago, Weta had a length of 74.62m and was designed by Michael Leach. The original design was slightly changed with the addition of an extra deck above the bridge deck.

Weta will be the biggest yacht ever to be fitted out in New Zealand. Few drydocks are large enough to complete the future exterior and interior works. Auckland or Whangarei could be the future places chosen for the completion.

In build for a long time now, Weta has already had multiple owners and shipyards before her completion. After a delivery date postponed over the years, we can expect to see her definitive launch in 2013.
