DYD175 01

DYD 55m

Sleek and sporty low profile flybridge design offering effortless sailing performance and a unique relationship between the expandable aft deck/beach and the water level; whilst seen regularly in motor yacht designs is not a feature seen on large sailing yachts.

A Ketch Rig plan has been chosen to provide a flexible and manageable distribution of sail area offering a healthy sail area to displacement ratio that will assure an exhilarating sailing experience.

The headsails are set up as with a large overlapping genoa and a smaller non-overlapping blade sail both furling and on a fixed stay. An off-wind Code sail will be provided on an underdeck furling drum which will be hoisted up through the deck when required.

The principal of the sail set up is to simplify the process as much as possible on tried and tested control systems with proven in-service reliability.

Internally the vessel shares many design characteristics associated with motor yachts. The main deck features a spacious glazed saloon, a formal dining area and the bridge. On the lower deck four comfortably proportioned guest cabins and a full width owner’s cabin with direct access to the aft beach via a private glazed deck saloon have all been accommodated.

The deck design is her tour de force and provides a refined balance to her powerful hull design. A spacious flybridge has been carefully disguised in a sleek profile offering twin helm stations, a jacuzzi and ample entertainment space. The open aft deck arrangement invites guests to the water.

The vessel boasts some impressive technological systems; an advanced hybrid propulsion system that optimizes the energy usage onboard and an energy recovery system that uses the propulsion propellers to generator electricity whilst the vessel is sailing. This is a statement yacht, for a customer passionate about sailing without wanting to compromise on living space and functionality.
