  1. 81-meter Aluminium Sailing Yacht Starts Construction
    The largest aluminium sailing superyacht in the world has started construction in earnest. The 81-meter has had its keel laid and work on the hull commenced. The impressive rig consists of a three-masted set-up that will hold three boom-furling sails. It is a carbon rig with standing carbon rigging by Rondal. The yacht is of gigantic proportions and even sail yachts in similar general size do not seem to compare adequately. The design is a collaboration between Dykstra and Mark Whiteley Design offering significant interior volume. Main deck level offers stunning internal entertainment areas. Near full-height glazing provides great visual connection to the sea. The main deck of the superstructure is so large that the owner can afford to have the forward section for themselves and favourite guests featuring relaxing couch seating and formal dining for as many as sixteen person around a large table.
  2. The exterior decks hide several special features. For example, ahead of the forward superstructure on the bow, there is a receptacle for a crew-sized tender. When the tender is launched or in use, the sunken area can actually be turned into a cockpit region. Just aft of the tender area, is what looks to be a deckhouse but it apparently an entrance to crew areas. Storage areas under the aft main deck hide watersports toys and equipment and various smaller storage and access hatches are all over the deck. The superstructure features a half-raised bridge for protected helming and full controls for sailing, along with access to the hydraulically operated crow’s nest. The sheltered main cockpit beneath the flybridge features a bar, sofas and a large table for alfresco dining at anchor.
  3. The interior is by Mark Whiteley and will feature wide use of a eco-friendly wood. Mark Whiteley has developed a modern interior in balance with the exterior living spaces based on Alpi walnut bulkheads and Oak floors -Alpi is a composite wood material that provides optimal performance and eco-sustainable quality-.Construction started on Project 400 -as it is being called in build- in June and is expected to continue until delivery in 2020. The project first came to light at the 2016 edition of the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) and was sold to an Asian client. A detailed model of the one-of-a-kind modern schooner rig vessel will be at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) at stand QE14.
