Overall length: 46 m

Hull length: 45,145 m

Waterline length: 38 m

Beam: 9,515 m

Draft (Min&Max): 3.4 - 6.4 m

Displacement: 260 Tm

Engine: 2 x 725 Hp

Water: 9,400 lt

Fuel: 40,000 lt

Sail area: 880 m²


The carbon rig (cutter - Style rig) and the furling boom carry 880 m² of sail and ensure exciting sailing performance despite its size. The command consoles, rest areas, solarium and jacuzzi are located on the 60' fly-bridge. A 19' tender is placed under the bow deck and is launched into the water using a hidden crane to free up the space in the shape of a pool.The transom opens as a bathing platform and houses another 16' tender.A pneumatically operated daggerboard maintains the draft low in port (3.4 m) and descends to increase sailing performance in navigation (6.40 m) All The maneuver is automated. The contained beam ensures good performance both under sail and under motor with a speed of 14 knots using two Caterpillar 725 HP engines. in the project and it is estimated that with these two engines it will give a cruising speed of: engines for a cruising speed of 14knots.
