Danish Yachts has recently reached an amazing first at the Superyacht Cup with their diverse, yet eye catching performance fleet in Palma de Mallorca. For the very first time, the J Class charter yacht Ranger, motor yacht Shooting Star, the carbon fibre-built yacht Aerocruiser 38m, as well as the recently launched carbon fibre-built sailing yacht Infiniti 36, were all involved in this popular race.
Luxury yacht Ranger was racing in the J Class fleet, narrowly missing a second place overall and Shooting Star yacht was acting in true ‘chase’ boat style entertaining VIP guests during each day of the Regatta.
The Infiniti 36 yacht was undergoing final sea trials prior to handover, highlighting the exceptional performance, which will be a key factor for her larger sister – superyacht Infiniti 100S from Danish Yachts – due to launch in 2014. All three yachts show the quality for which Danish Yachts is renowned. Both previous World Superyacht award winners, Ranger yacht illustrates the exceptional joinery skills at the shipyard in Skagen, while luxury yacht Shooting Star shows an exceptional quality of finish and unique interior features.
Patrik von Sydow, CEO at Danish Yachts said, “It was an extremely rare treat for both competitors and spectators to see our fleet together in Palma for the first time. It was a very proud and defining moment in the history of the shipyard to have these diverse performance vessels all in the same place at the same time, with a vast range of capabilities and advanced composite materials in common. The Infiniti 36, built using the patented “Dynamic Stability System”, is an exciting forerunner to our new Infiniti 100S from Danish Yachts which gives significantly faster speeds and a safer, more stable style of sailing.”
