Sailing Yacht VERTIGO - Alloy Yachts

Yacht Description

Sailing Yacht VERTIGO is a Philippe Briand designed, Alloy Yachts constructed vessel of 220 foot in length over all with the interior design from Christian Liaigre. Her construction was overseen by the project manager Andrew Senn from Australia.

Sailing Yacht VERTIGO


Vertigo yacht is the first sailing yacht of her size to have an almost vertical bow. She was designed to be large but sensitive to sail, explaining her modern hull lines. Her almost vertical bow allows greater waterline length, thus making for a considerable improvement in speed both under sail and engine power.

With an air clearance restricted to 68m (for access to the Suez Canal) and a draft restriction of 5m, the designer of the AY41 Vertigo Sailing Yacht was particularly concerned with enhancing efficiency of the sail plan and keel.

A Ketch rig was the only option when designing this yacht. Mainsail and mizzen sail include roaches with have never been seen or used on yachts of her size. More surface area of the sails is exposed up where the wind velocity is greater than it is at the proximity of the water.  This led to having sails developing a larger driving force than that of conventional triangular sails.  Therefore runners are used in instead of permanent backstays. This is another first on a boat of this size, made possible via the technology of mast builders Southern Spars. Draft is increased to 9.10 m by a daggerboard extension. Captive winches and vertical winches are custom made by Alloy Yachts.

Superyacht Vertigo is expected reaches a speed of about 20 knots under sail with a true wind speed of 20 knots. She is said to outperform the already existing mega sailing yachts also with light winds of less then 10 knots.

With a use of engine power she can reach a maximum speed of 17 knots and maintain a cruising speed of 12 knots with an estimated range of over 4000 nautical miles.

The main lazarette of the sailing yacht Vertigo is situated in the middle of the vessel rather than aft. As a result, the access to the boat from her tender is more central. The aft lazarette houses a large 8 m “commuter” tender.  It is enclosed by one door serving as a swimming platform and the stairs to this transom door when it is open are formed from the aft passerelles.

On the foredeck there are two lockers that house 2 x 6m tenders. The foredeck and passage way are entirely flush. This gives the aesthetic a very sleek appearance to the AY41 Vertigo yacht which is unique for a yacht of this size.

Particular attention has been given to the exterior relaxing areas, cockpit and flying bridge, affording the possibility to be outside and sheltered as you wish. The aft cockpit is especially well protected by a large hard-top that incorporates a louvre system and by lateral sliding windows. The flybridge is open but on demand it can be protected by a removable bimini top and a large dodger.

The sun pads at the rear of the cockpit conceal a swimming pool.

Inside Vertigo sailing yacht is extremely comfortable; light floods in all around, as the designer intended especially in the saloon on the main deck. The sides of the superstructure are transparent, bringing the outside into the saloon. The perfect integration of deck saloon and cockpit create a seamless living area 30 m long.

The lower deck layout shows 4 x guest rooms and huge owner’s state room aft.  The passage from this cabin leads directly to the lazarette and swim platform. Forward there is enough accommodation for 11 crew.
