As stated by VPLP: “We believe designed elegance is not only a question of style, balance of proportions and harmony of lines it is also related to coherence and cleverness. Don’t we use the word “elegant” for a smart solution to a problem? Despite her length we want KOMOREBI not to appear dominant and overwhelming – we want a sweet giant who we can all love.”

Rolex Fastnet Race 2015 to host a record-sized fleet of yachts

May 08, 2015

August 16, 2015 in the enchanting Solent yacht charter location, will be marked by the start of the Rolex Fastnet Race, the world’s biggest offshore race. This year’s regatta is expected to host a record-sized fleet of as many as 350 offshore racing yachts.

The 603 mile course will once again take the fleet west along the south coast of England, across the Celtic Sea to the Fastnet Rock off the tip of southwest Ireland, south around Bishop Rock and the Scilly Isles and back east to the finish in Plymouth.

The Rolex Fastnet Race also represents one of the most popular events in sailing: the original limit of 300 boats racing for the overall handicap prize under IRC was increased to 340 in 2013 due to the increased demand. When registration opened in January 2015, all 340 places were filled within just 24 minutes!

This year’s race for monohull line honours will be attended by two brand new American maxis, both launched late last year: George David’s 88ft sailing yacht Rambler 88 and Jim Clark’s 100ft superyacht Comanche.

This year’s battle of the multihulls will include the world’s fastest race boat – the 40m (131’) trimaran Spindrift, skippered by Yann Guichard and Dona Bertarelli. In 2009 this superyacht covered 908,2 miles a day at an average speed of 37,84 knots and has been first home in the last two editions of Rolex Fastnet Race.

The 2015 regatta will also see the participation of the three MOD70 trimarans, comprising Musandam-Oman Sail, skippered by Sidney Gavignet. In 2014, this yacht participated in an amazing Sevenstar Round Britain and Ireland Race, setting not only a race record time, but also becoming the outright record holder for the Round Britain and Ireland course.

Eddie Warden Owen, Chief Executive of the Royal Ocean Racing Club, explains the uniqueness of the Rolex Fastnet Race:The Rolex Fastnet Race is a world classic and probably the largest, most famous of its type. This year the demand has been huge with places selling out in 24 minutes and a waiting list of over 80 boats. The challenge for many is completing what can be a very tough adventure, but also its attraction for the experienced offshore racer is that they can compete with the top professionally raced yachts and have a realistic chance of winning. In 2013 the race was won by a very experienced father and son team sailing two handed which shows that anyone has a chance of winning the most prestigious race in the world calendar.”

Fleet of multihulls to compete in Les Voiles de St. Barth 2015

March 18, 2015

One of the principles behind Les Voiles de St. Barth since the regatta’s introduction back in 2010 is that all the yachts, whatever their size or rating, are allowed to have free expression. In this way, in addition to the monohull craft, a number of multihulls also attend the popular Caribbean regatta, annually hosted by the lovely St. Barth yacht charter destination.

The fleet of multihulls competing in Les Voiles de St. Barth is an eclectic one, but the Caribbean Sailing Association has thought of everything. Indeed since last year its measurers have implemented a Multihull Ratings Rule. This special system for boats with two or three hulls aims to be more fair and egalitarian in its rating, since it takes into account the daggerboard and weight characteristics in its awarding of handicaps. This enables a set of very different multihulls to take the same start line, a key factor given that this 2015 edition of the race will, for the first time, play host to Erik Maris’ CG 32 Le Carré Diamond Genesis. A 32-foot foiling one-design catamaran launched in late 2012 and designed by Martin Fisher according to an idea by Laurent Lenne, it will compete alongside a 70-foot trimaran.

The 70-foot trimaran Phaedo3 will also be competing at St. Barths in April. The latter is none other than the former MOD 70 Foncia (launched in August 2011) with which Michel Desjoyeaux set the Round the Island record back in 2012 (two hours, 21 minutes and 25 seconds) shortly before winning the European Tour and finishing second in the Multi One Design Championship. Owned by American Lloyd Thornburg since the winter, the boat recently excelled at the RORC Caribbean 600.

Onboard the famous names include Brian Thompson, Sam Goodchild and Pete Cummings. Suffice it to say that in elapsed time she will be hard to beat, but victory on corrected time is not necessarily a given, far from it in fact. “For this particular boat, the courses we’ll be setting will doubtless be a bit small, so consequently it will be interesting to see how boats like Peter Aschenbrenner’s Paradox  perform” explains Poupon.

This 63-footer regularly demonstrates that she is quick and perfectly adept at reaching over 30 knots of boat speed. She really showed what she was made of during the RORC Caribbean 600 2013 whilst a certain Cam Lewis was aboard. However, neither Phaedo3 nor sailing yacht Paradox will be able to dawdle along the route if they want to offset their rating difference with regard to their rivals. Indeed, Steven Cucchiaro’s 55′ Gunboat Flow and Chris Groobey’s Tocatta 60′ won’t be there just to make up the numbers.

Designed in carbon epoxy to guarantee a lightweight structure, the former includes all the necessary cruising comfort without sacrificing performance in any way. The same is true for the second, built in China at Xiamen, which put in her first appearance on the world stage back in 2013, during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. You get the picture then, in this multihull class at Les Voiles de St. Barth, there is a little something for everyone and some great surprises in store!

Wild Group completes wrap of 70ft Racing Trimaran Phaedo3

March 11, 2015

Wild Group International have already hit the headline hat-trick this year, with the largest yacht ever wrapped, motor yacht Aviva, announcing the exclusive distribution rights for the ground-breaking Färben films, and now they can announce that they have successfully completed the wrap of the striking 70-foot speed demon trimaran Phaedo3.

Sailing yacht Phaedo 3 set the RORC Caribbean 600 course record by over six hours last week. Wild Group International’s team were commissioned prior to her launch earlier this year to wrap the ‘racing weapon’ in chrome and electric lime green in Brittany.

Greg Hoar, the founder of Wild Group International, states: “Really pleased to be involved with Brian and his team on this fantastic project.  It’s a great demonstration of the different effects that can be used with vinyl films and foils and just how striking a result they can achieve.  Well done to the Phaedo3 team!”

First renderings of 84m Echo Trimaran Motor Yacht and her 46m Shadow Vessel

February 23, 2015

Australian superyacht manufacturer, Echo Yachts, is delighted to announce that work on their two new build projects – the 84m Echo trimaran motor yacht and her 46m shadow vessel – is on schedule and progressing well. For the first time, the shipyard is able to release official renderings of both projects.

84m Echo Trimaran Motor Yacht

Under construction at the company’s Henderson facility is an 84m Trimaran superyacht, due in 2017, and a 46m catamaran support vessel, due in the first quarter of 2016. Both projects are under construction for the same owner, with many years of ownership experience.

The 46m shadow vessel is a catamaran design that will be used as a support vessel for the 84m superyacht on its completion. Built in fibreglass with cutting edge vacuum infusion processes and high tech laminates, the vessel has been designed by LOMOcean in New Zealand to house a fleet of 11 watercraft including a 12m catamaran. An impressive strength to weight ratio will see the yacht able to efficiently cruise in a wide range of environments.

A large amount of design and engineering work was invested into the project prior to build work commencing to ensure a construction process that is extremely efficient without any compromise on quality. Focusing on R&D and harnessing innovation is a core goal of the yard, and the 46m project is a clear demonstration of the beneficial effects of this programme.

The 84m Echo Trimaran superyacht will be the latest in a long line of superyachts built for her owner and is the culmination of his many years of experience. Designed by Sam Sorgiovanni, the yacht will not only be the biggest superyacht ever built in Australia, but also the largest tri-hulled superyacht ever built. Huge interior volumes will ensure ample living space on board for her 12 guests to take advantage of.

These two new projects mark the start of a long-term market presence and strategy for the yard, which particularly specialises in large, custom projects. On completion of the 46m in the first quarter of 2016, Echo Yachts will have an 80m+ build slot available and are seeking inquiries for new build projects.

Yard management are confident that this opportunity represents an attractive prospect for owners looking to take advantage of both an attractive exchange rate on the Australian dollar and Echo Yacht’s offering of a high-quality, no fuss build.

Although a young operation, the combined expertise of its staff and their many decades of experience within the superyacht industry means that Echo Yachts is set to be a serious player in large yacht construction. Bringing together the team from Australia and around the world was a key consideration for company senior management Mark Stothard, Jurien van Rongen and Nick Gardiner. Their investment into selecting the right team is already paying dividends in the quality and on-schedule and on-budget builds of the two new projects.

With the yard able to build any hull form in aluminium, steel, composite, or a combination of these materials, it is more than qualified to meet the demands of any custom project. In addition to the strength and skillsets of the yard team, the Australian reputation for innovative high-quality construction makes Echo Yachts a particularly appealing option, especially for those based in the nearby Asia-Pacific where yacht ownership continues to rise in popularity.

The yard welcomes all enquiries, and looks forward to continuing to build its market presence in 2015.

McConaghy Boats & BMT Group to construct Luxury Trimaran Tri60

February 12, 2015

McConaghy Boats and BMT Group have announced that the IY&A Awards 2015-nominated luxury trimaran Tri60 will begin its construction. The unique and well-balanced Tri60 trimaran yacht was created with the perfect balance in mind, incorporating style, speed as well as comfort on board; this should be of great benefit to buyers looking for a trimaran that is well suited both for private use as well as luxury yacht charter.

“BMT worked with McConaghy two years ago on a unique composite project at the same time that the much-celebrated 142-foot Adastra trimaran yacht was being completed. We asked —How can we capture the spirit of this compelling work? How do we create something that is as innovative and exciting, whilst also being accessible to a wider dayboat or weekender market?” says Richard Colwill, Managing Director at BMT Asia Pacific.

With styling help from Henry Ward Design and A Sea Marine, the Tri60 yacht is available in two forms: the open Cabriolet for those who love outdoor activities and the Saloon for anyone looking  for a more enclosed lounging experience. Both styles are built around a traditional trimaran hull and feature a wide beam that is usually found on much larger yachts. The luxury yacht Tri60 has plenty of windows, skylights, and sliding glass doors that offer tons of natural light and help to combine the interior and exterior. The stern garage can fit a 10′ four-person tender, and the pontoons can fit extra deck furniture and water toys, extremely popular with yacht charterers.

Shuttleworth 32M Yacht Concept

Shuttleworth 32M Yacht Concept

Powered by a single 1150hp C18 caterpillar engine with an additional 110hp engine in each outrigger for manoeuvring and back up propulsion, the Shuttleworth 32M superyacht has a top speed of 23 knots and a range at 12 knots in excess of 6,000 miles.

Using state of the art composite engineering the studio has achieved the light weight structure required for exceptional fuel efficiency and performance, as well as the strength and rigidity suitable for heavy weather ocean capability. Ocean voyages can be undertaken with confidence, at high speed and in comfort, allowing you to go anywhere, anytime.

Award Winning Design

All the latest trimaran designs by Shuttleworth are based on the award winning naval architecture principles used to create the 42.5m trimaran Adastra. The slender, shallow draft hull forms are designed to slice through waves with minimal resistance, reducing fuel consumption, improving passenger comfort and enabling faster transit in rough conditions. Unlike a monohull, the shape of the multi-hull vessels mean they require no additional stabilisation to reduce roll. Aerodynamics and hydrodynamics above the waterline were carefully considered as we developed the overall exterior shapes and we kept the vessels streamlined for both air and water passing over the structure. The smooth, seamless, unbroken surfaces also help to reduce weight as the outer-skin forms part of the structure to absorb torsional loads.

Superyacht Adastra has now covered 14,000 miles at sea and has proven herself to be a very comfortable and exceptionally fuel efficient ocean going vessel. She can travel at 17 to 20 knots in most conditions, and has weathered 50 knot winds and seas up to 4 metres. She is incredibly stable and comfortable at rest and rolling is virtually eliminated by the outriggers.

On winning the 2013 Showboats Design Awards for naval architecture, the judges stated: “This yacht will have the best performance in the most sea states of all those presented.”
