One of the worlds most interesting Super Yachts AQUIJO visited Southern Tasmania this autumn and made an impact on the Hobart waterfront.
At 86 metres Aquijo is the largest ketch in the world and would not have gone under the Tasman Bridge. She was built at the Alblasserdam shipyard of Oceanco in the US in 2016, designed by Tripp Design with interior by Dolker and Voges Germany.Vitters provided much of the engineering. She carries 5,300 square meters of sail !
TMN members Tasmanian Shipping Supplies managed much of Aquijo’s servicing while in port , and as Edward Fader indicates this resulted in many Tasmanian firms picking up work on board across a wide range of goods and services. Sure this included food and wine but this is all part of the Tasmania Brand of which the TMN are key supporters.
