The blue yacht is set to go to some "far flung places" around the world McMullen and Wing Yacht builders said. A $60 million superyacht built in Auckland has been launched but details of who owns the boat or what's on board have been kept under wraps. Ship builders McMullen & Wing said the 50-metre vessel was the largest superyacht they had ever worked on and took about half a million man hours to complete. The company would not disclose the owner's name or nationality, or where they were cruising to. Eaglen said it weighed 550 tonnes and was able to house up to 12 guests in luxury suites as well as 12 crew in en-suite cabins. The yacht's sister ship, Big Fish, was built by McMullen & Wing in 2010 and spent time exploring the Arctic Circle. The superyacht was due to be available for public viewing at the Viaduct before setting off on an international adventure in April.
