History

In 1986 Cosmos was completed by Lloyd's Ships Brisbane . Also around this time (1986) the ship yard had just been taken over by the Qintex group ( under the control of the late Christopher Skase ).

At 86 ft , Cosmos is still considered one of Australia's most luxurious and recognizable private vessels . Having featured in movies and lifestyle shows , it was the first boat of its size to have a fully operational private Helipad . Cosmos set the standards for all mega yachts to come .

More - History

The construction of Cosmos took 3 full years to complete and was 100 % percent made in Australia from local materials

The hull ( super structure ) was made from 8 mm marine grade plate Aluminium . Stronger than other substrates like fibreglass and wood .

The upper deck was a complicated design , as it required to receive Helicopters up to the size of a Bell Longranger and the heavy Aerospatiale AS-355 Twin Ecureuil

In present day terms , Cosmos would have a replacement cost of well over $8 million .

Features

A unique forward folding radar tower ( like something out of a James Bond movie) allows for a quick conversion of the top deck area , into a fully operational helicopter landing area . The top deck also includes a 16 ft speed boat , a 12 ft Zodiac Inflatable, two jet skis, davits and boat cradles.
The ship is airconditioned throughout and in 1988 was the only boat to have a bow thruster and Naiad stabilisers .
