THE SPIRIT OF AN EXPLORER Like Big Fish before her, Star Fish has been designed to redefine luxury yachting. To explore the far reaches of the globe in refined, relaxed luxury.

In March 2010, McMullen & Wing launched the 45m Big Fish – a luxury expedition yacht which became an overnight sensation. Strikingly architectural, immaculately finished and highly innovative, Big Fish became one of the most awarded and most widely published motor yachts in the world.

Like Big Fish before her, Star Fish has been designed to redefine luxury yachting. To explore the far reaches of the globe in refined, relaxed luxury. Star Fish was 75 per cent complete when she was tragically damaged in a shipyard fire in August 2012. Hundreds of thousands of man hours of immaculate craftsmanship went up in smoke. But Star Fish was by no means destroyed.

After removing the interior and aluminium superstructure, an extensive survey revealed that the beautiful hull remained almost undamaged. The engine room, nearly complete and sparkling white, was virtually untouched. Millions of dollars’ worth of equipment and fittings were safely held in separate storage, completely unaffected. What remains today is a stunning opportunity – a pre-prepared hull and engineering platform, ready to receive a brand new superstructure and interior to any style you desire. A brand new custom motoryacht from one of the world’s finest shipyards. Saving more than an entire year of lead time. At an eight-figure discount.

Immediately after finishing Big Fish, the same owner commissioned McMullen & Wing to build a second yacht, the 50m Star Fish. Although an entirely new design, larger and with greater amenity, the family lineage remains clear: a highly efficient, seakindly steel hull, strong masculine styling in the aluminium superstructure, extensive window glazing, a modern contemporary interior.

heritage Star Fish represents the next stage in development from Big Fish. Commissioned by the same owner, with the same team of designers and shipyard, Star Fish builds on the successes of Big Fish to take luxury expedition yachting to a yet higher level.

“I wanted a boat to explore far-off waters in relaxed comfort, complete safety and full security. I was surprised by the profound enjoyment I derived from the creative process of developing my yacht.� Richard Beattie, Owner, M/Y Big Fish


Big Fish has become known as the yacht that never stands still.

In her second year she completed another 20,000 miles. In her third, another 20,000 miles. Circling the globe, visiting far off

destinations was what she was built to do – and she has excelled. Big Fish has a built spectacularly successful charter following. Over three years, Big Fish has introduced the luxury charter market to some of the world’s most remote destinations and has enjoyed multiple repeat charters from individuals attracted to Big Fish’s fresh, dynamic approach and unique destinations.

In the first 12 months after her launch, Big Fish completed 30,000 nautical miles, logging stops in Auckland, French Polynesia, Galapagos, Panama, Florida, Chile, Antarctica, Falkland Islands, Rio de Janiero, Amazon, Bahamas, Stockholm and St Petersburg.
