Vitters Shipyard and Oceanco are thrilled to announce that they are currently working on the construction of the 85-metre performance sailing yacht Project 85, also known as hull Y711 at Oceanco, and as hull 3069 at Vitters. Luxury mega yacht Project 85 features naval architecture by the US-based design studio Tripp Design Naval Architecture, while her interior design is by the Hamburg-based studio Dölker + Voges.
Superyacht Project 85 will be the actual proof that a large sailing yacht can have at least equal sailing characteristics as a yacht of smaller dimensions. As can be expected from both naval architect and builder, this yacht will be a true sailing yacht, performing well across the entire wind range and always a true pleasure to sail and cruise on board.
As an experienced sailor, the Owner’s brief called for a performing and comfortable cruising yacht, suitable for long range world-wide cruising and with long-time independence from shore.
With the powerful rig, special attention was given to the development of sailing systems, which had to be, first and foremost, safe, strong and light. This was a challenging project in itself which came down to the custom development of winches, up to 40 tons, furlers and ground-breaking masts and rigging.
There is accommodation for 12 guests plus a compliment of 18 on board, divided over three decks. The interior in a modern styling by Dolker +Voges has a light wood-tone tone, with remarkable stainless steel details and colourful upholstery.
Project 85 superyacht is a remarkable co-operation between Vitters Shipyard and Oceanco, where both partners contribute experience and knowledge in the, for each yard, relevant areas. This is a unique way of two shipyards working together, as unique as the yacht itself. Both Vitters Shipyard and Oceanco are dedicated to make Project 85 the first large sailing super yacht that combines outstanding sailing abilities with reliability and state-of-the-art comfort and luxury.
Project 85 yacht will be ready for delivery middle of 2015.
