Quintessential, (aka Q5) is one of the largest composite sailing Superyacht catamarans in service, measuring 100ft (30.5m) in length and a staggering 48 feet (14.6m) in beam. Under sail during sea trials a boat speed of 14 knots was recorded in just 12 knots of true wind speed.
Building this magnificent yacht was a collaborative work by New Zealand based companies. The carbon fibre mast was built by Southern Spars NZ and stepped at Yachting Developments factory prior to launching, sails were custom designed and built by Doyles NZ. Yachting Developments teamed up with Auckland based Superyacht Interiors New Zealand (SINZ) in creating a stunning traditional teak interior and spacious outdoor entertainment/bar area. Naval architecture and exterior styling is by Warwick Yacht Design, interior design is by Redman Whitely Dixon.
