The wonderful 42.6 metre charter yacht Sarissa is a 2011 delivered carbon fibre sloop constructed by the prestigious Dutch shipyard Vitters. She is also the largest carbon fibre sloop built to date in the Netherlands. Her naval architecture features an excellent design by Bill Tripp with a fully contemporary hull shape, sail plan and foils. Elegant and timeless interior design of the superyacht Sarissa was created by Rhoades Young Design and the Owner’s representative Jens Cornelsen Yacht Consultant GmbH. Sarissa yacht guarantees matchless luxury Mediterranean yacht charter holiday experience for 8 guest accommodated in 5 cabins catered for by a crew of 6 professionals.
Naval Architect Bill Tripp states: “Sarissa is exactly at the point where the state-of-the-art large sailing yacht world lies. She is a modern, technical boat whose design was guided by close client input and involvement. She will be used to sail all over the world with the family in tow, and will take part in the established superyacht regattas. Technology and modern design merge within Sarissa, providing the owner with luxurious comfort, accessible and easy sailing, integrated design, advanced performance, and confidence to sail anywhere in safety.”
“Following our previous carbon high performance sailing yachts, this increase in size is not the only development.” Adds Louis Hamming of Vitters. “Her hydraulic and deck systems provide improved reaction speed, load and stiffness to safely facilitate the sailing performance she was designed for.” Other custom technical features are a Vitters’ developed hydraulic steering system with rudder feedback, as well as a unique system of back stays and running stays to operate both her cruising and racing sail configurations.
The interior design brief requested for a modern and spacious interior, yet warm and inviting like a family home. Jonathan Rhoades: “Within the length and the yachts fine performance hull lines, our goal was to create the feeling of a much larger interior. We have therefore visually borrowed volume and length from other spaces and integrated double use of certain areas. By staggering the accommodation blocks diagonally, we have stretched the visual length of the interior and effectively making the interior feel 1.5 times bigger. Tripp Design paired the vertical port lights creating a unique window that floods the interior with light. Our design capitalizes on the ample natural light below deck and spectacular views of water and sky.”
