Now listed on LEGO.com, the LEGO Technic Emirates Team New Zealand AC75 Yacht (42174) boasts 962 pieces and stands tall with its intricate design. This set is a delightful surprise, initially rumored as a simple brick-built water vehicle, filling a long-standing gap in the LEGO Technic lineup. The theme’s previous racing yacht, released in 2018, contained just 330 pieces, making this new set a significant upgrade.

A Landmark Addition to the LEGO Technic Theme

The LEGO Technic Emirates Team New Zealand AC75 Yacht is a monumental addition to the Technic theme, being one of the largest and most expensive boats in the collection. This set marks a rare inclusion of a watercraft in the LEGO Technic portfolio, coming exactly 100 set numbers after the LEGO Technic Racing Yacht (42074) from 2018.

Pricing and Licensing Details

Available for $119.99 in the US, the LEGO Technic Emirates Team New Zealand AC75 Yacht is priced to reflect its increased size and scale. Part of the cost can be attributed to real-world licensing, with the model featuring detailed logos and sponsors, including Emirates, Toyota, and Omega.

Special Features and Playability

One of the standout features of this set is its pneumatic function, which allows builders to pump up the hydrofoil cant arms, mimicking the hydraulic mechanism used on real racing yachts. This adds a layer of realism and playability, making it a must-have for Technic fans.

The LEGO Technic Emirates Team New Zealand AC75 Yacht (42174) is set to join a handful of other LEGO Technic Summer 2024 sets launching on August 1. Stay tuned for more details on this impressive new addition to the LEGO Technic family.
