Bristolian II

Bristolian II was launched in New Zealand in June of 2008 by Yachting Development. The main requirement of the customer was that the yacht should be as high performance as the current model and at the same time remaining its specific new design. Thus, a carbon composite boat was build with a lifting keel and modern style decision. As the customer wanted below deck a low saloon with a raised dining area to the starboard side it was achieved by original asymmetrical deck saloon.
