Luxury yacht INOUI represents an intriguing project, Philippe Briand became fascinated instantly. The yacht is based on a high-tech carbon structure. The keel is a lifting keel with a draft of 5.25 m. The high aspect ratio sail plan and the square top main sail are seen for the first time in a boat of this size.
On the criterion of style, Philippe Briand have devoted a large amount of their attention to designing a boat that is both well proportioned and very balanced. The studio interpreted the “timeless” request of the owner in the following way: cultivated over many years, yachting is an old tradition which has gradually evolved to have its own culture. Being a ware of this culture enables one to identify the traits that distinguish an elegant boat from each period of time. With this in mind, Philippe Briand designed a hull whose main features are:
– A moderate beam, inspired by the yachts of the 60’s
– A reverse transom with a long slope as with the best racing yachts in the 80’s
– A coach roof with quite simple lines resembling the yachts of the 90’s
– A plum line bow so characteristic of the yachts built since the year 2000
– Finally, the geometry of the rig stems from the studio’s design of the 2007 America’s Cup
Each of these features are in our eyes, qualities of the most beautiful sailing yachts that have existed over the past 70 years. Combining these qualities has made the 108’ superyacht INOUI a truly timeless design.
With her striking green hull INOUI yacht is also distinctive and instantly recognizable. She stands out from the crowd.
INOUI superyacht is also a yacht for cruising. Her accommodation layout shows 2 guest cabins and a larger forward owner’s suite. The crew quarter’s can accommodate up to 6 crew. The raised up saloon is the key feature of the design layout. Its size, protection, full outer panoramic view and fresh ventilation make this main saloon the ideal living area even under sail. The cockpit is the place for enjoying the sun with 2 large sunbeds.
Superyacht INOUI is expected to participate in superyacht races which traditionally see both the most efficient and elegant yachts competing.
