Upcoming launch: 55-meter Vitters yacht "Marie"
Dutch yacht builder Vitters is preparing to launch the 55-meter ketch-rigged yacht "Marie". She is a sister-yacht to the award-winning ketch "Adele" and features lines penned by Hoek Design. Double deck houses aid in the classic appearance of the hull which mirrors Adele's
design. In fact, most aspects of Marie's
hull, (surface and underwater and it's appendages) and associated functions are identical. However, Marie's
interior will be markedly different as she features a new and customizable interior that has been tailored to suit the needs of the owner.
interior is designed by David Easton Design together with Hoek Design and features the renowed privacy concept. The aft owner's cabin is directly connected to an owner's deckhouse and aft cockpit. The two helm stations are incorporated in the main cockpit forward of the owner's deckhouse." On deck her black carbon ketch-rig will be stepped when she is launched.
Considerable weight saving is achieved with the use of composite rigging and high modulus carbon spars
. Additionally the interior fitout has been done to be as light as possible without hampering the optimum sailing/racing prowess. Marie
has been built in Alustar to the standards of ABS and MCA.
