Vitters and Oceanco shipyards are very pleased to announce that the world’s largest high-performance ketch AQUIJO, measuring 85 metres, has been delivered to her owner. The sailing yachts is a result of tight collaboration between two important shipyards, Vitters and Oceanco, that worked closely throughout all stages of this custom-made project.
AQUIJO was constructed under project name P85/3069/Y711 with superior naval architecture by Tripp Design Naval Architecture while her interiors were designed by Dolker + Voges. The whole project was overseen by the project management of Master Yachts, the Owner’s Representatives.
This innovative superyacht brings together fantastic sailing performance, the latest in technology and reliability, excellent layout and space, as well as complete comfort and luxury – a combination of aspects seldom found aboard sailing yachts.
The superstructure was created to blend the interior socialising area with those on her exterior, resulting in a clean look with sleek lines. The interiors can also be described as clean, modern with a contemporary decor.
AQUIJO performs well at all points of sail and benefits from exceptional engineering and immaculate craftsmanship. Her one-of-a-kind steering system, developed by Vitters Shipyard, translates the hydrodynamic of the underwater rudder blades directly to the flybridge steering wheels, offering the helmsman an immediate feedback and acute sensitivity to the feel of the boat. This provides for pleasurable sailing at maximum potential.
The yacht boasts two 90-metre masts, representing two of the tallest masts in the world. Her performance sail plan is set up to be safe, reliable and simple to handle. A truly pioneering boat, AQUIJO will impress wherever she turns up.
