Superyacht Blessed by Buddists

In New Zealand the Aquos Yachts team have celebrated the completion of expedition yacht Big Fish built by McMullen and Wing, which departs later this month for Tahiti and already has three charters booked in the South Pacific.
She will then begin a Polar Circumnavigation of Antarctica during January and February of next year.  While there she will be the only luxury yacht in the region and the first charter yacht to offer fly-in, fly-out service, a feature that not only eliminates the often-arduous crossing of Drake’s Passage, but adds more than 4 days to the time charter clients and guests can spend on station enjoying the extraordinary scenery and wildlife of Antarctica.

Among the recent launch celebrations in Auckland was a unique and moving blessing of the yacht by 15 Buddhist monks on, Buddha’s birthday (May 21 in the Chinese calendar), a ceremony inspired by the Hong Kong residency of her owners.
