The Judel & Vrolijk TransPac 52 is the third for owner Torbjorn Tornqvist (SWE) and the tenth TP52 to be built by Cooksons.
Artemis features spars by nearby Southern Spars and sails by North Sails NZ.
After launching tomorrow she will start a two boat work up campaign with Emirates Team NZ through to the end of the month, when the yachts will be shipped to Europe for the start of the MedCup circuit.
