VITRUVIUS A new Philippe Briand design to be built by Lürssen Yachts. If Vitruvius looks like it's missing a mast, it's because Philippe Briand has concentrated mainly on sailing yachts in the past. Working in conjunction with Lurssen yachts, his experience in designing sailing yachts is about to be transformed into a 180' - high speed, high efficiency motoryacht. Built of Alustar with a focus on hull and propulsion efficiency, Vitruvius will reach a top speed of more than 20 knots with cruising speed of 18 knots. Impressive figures for a 180' yacht! As a by-product of its Alustar construction and optimized hull, fuel consumption is 50% less than a conventional yacht of similar size. This increased efficiency will give Vitruvius a range of 4000 miles at 15 knots. Essentially, a motoryacht with the trans-Atlantic capability of a sailing yacht.
