Constructed by K&M Yachtbuilders, the lovely 88-foot sailing yacht ‘TULIP’ will be one of the 19 competitors in the annual Superyacht Cup Palma. The 2013 event will take place in the popular Spanish yacht charter destination – Palma de Mallorca, running from June 19 to 22.
Although the superyacht ‘Tulip’ is the largest yacht built by K&M so far, she is one of the smaller participants in the Superyacht Cup Palma. The yacht is certainly a force to be reckoned with, however, as can be read on the website of the Cup: “The latest yacht to register is the new modern-classic 26m Tulip, designed by German Frers and built by K&M Yachtbuilders in Holland. Tulip was launched in the Autumn 2012 and with her lightweight interior and carbon rig is likely to be a competitive entry.”
The world’s most spectacular yachts will convene in Palma de Mallorca marina over the coming weeks. The 5 participating J class yachts will compete in their own race on the 19th, after which all the yachts will compete for the Cup. With a view to the varying sizes of the competitors, the yachts have been divided into two groups in order to give all participants an equal chance.
K&M would like to wish the ‘Tulip’ yacht and her crew good luck and great fun during the races!
