The striking 43,80-metre sailing yacht Project Blue concept has been magnificently penned by Camillo De Gaspari from Italy. CharterWorld has spoken to Camillo to learn more about his superyacht Project Blue concept.
What are the main characteristics of the project?
The project is a passagemaker, in other words an offshore cruiser, but bigger and with more cabins. The requirements are for a yacht optimized for the pleasure of sailing rather than living onboard, agile and fast.
What are the most interesting/special features?
Project Blue refers to features not often seen on other sailing yachts like a fractionated rig instead of a sloop, fending bulwarks instead of candlesticks, a well raised helm position and more.
Would this concept be suitable for a superyacht charter purpose?
Ocean passages and sailing from a charter location to another could be part of the fun for up to 12 passengers and 10 sailors. There is a lounge between stations 10 and 12 where the customer can decide the destination of use, is it a spa, a disco and so on, more technical content like a retractable keel or balconies will be decided with the engineering team. The yacht should compete in the Superyacht rule, Jacuzzi, garage with water toys, and luxury interiors are expected, so I think it would be very suitable for charter operations, too.
