A New Zealand builder of composite motor yachts has forward-ordered five bearing sets for its upcoming builds later this year.
The company’s yachts range from 15 to 50 meters and the boat maker specializes in engineering excellence and quality finishes and interiors for its high-performance carbon-fiber racer-cruising yachts.
The boat maker last took delivery in October 2022 of the sixth propeller-shaft bearing that it has ordered from Vesconite Bearings.
Its Vesconite Hilube no-swell wear-resistant bearings were to go into a double-hull catamaran.
The catamaran had been created to reach a top speed of 41.5 knots through an innovative design that focused on the foil, propeller, and bearings, among other components.
The New Zealand motor yacht builder is particularly proud of the speeds that its luxury motor boats reach, as well as their stability and fuel efficiency.
