A stern anchor system for the world's first hybrid superyacht
It was New Zealand owner’s rep, Captain Aaron Clark, who initially approached the Bowmaster team with this client’s requirements. He wanted a stern anchoring solution that allowed the boat to get close to the world’s most idyllic and exclusive anchorages.
Bowmaster had an existing relationship with the designer – Gregory C Marshall – and Gregory felt the team could work well together to meet the client’s custom needs. The vessel was to accommodate a vast range of uses and Gregory felt Bowmaster were just the right fit to deliver on expectations.
The complete patent-pending Subplough Stern Anchor System was built in-house and approved to Lloyd’s Register.
The solution was a steel module surround, with stainless plating and carriage in wet areas using a galvanized plough anchor.
The challenges faced stretched the team’s thinking and learning, something both the design and fabrication teams relish.
All fabricated under the watchful supervision of Lloyd’s Register, the build of the box and system was a great solution for the owner’s team who had a clear vision of what they wanted the system to enable the vessel to do.
Approved plate was used throughout the build and, once completed, the system was scanned in 3D to ensure a millimeter perfect supply was achieved.
M/Y Artefact was a feature of the Monaco International Yacht Show in 2019 and has since been nominated for multiple Boat International 2021 Design and Innovation awards. These nominations include:
- Innovation of the Year for Hybrid Power
- Outstanding Exterior Motor Yacht Design
- Best Motor Yacht Design
