FC   53'



After running us in a contest against another architect, an experienced sailor chose us to design the boat of his dreams. The project's highlights are : a fast cruising yacht, comfortable, safe, very easy to handle double-handed, and very stylish, both outside and inside.

Inspired by our IMOCA racing monohulls, this is a wide and light yacht, with one ton of water ballast each side, for maximal performance. It is entierly made of carbon fiber sandwich, with Corecell and Nomex cores. The pivoting lifting keel reduces the performance-oriented 3.75m draft to 1.6m for access to all harbours and creeks. It also provides unmatched safety in case of grounding.

The front part of the cockpit is comfortable and well-protected, separate from the manoeuvres, which are regrouped in the aft part. All lines are led below the deck. The longitudinal garage opens to the transom and makes the tender's lauch a breeze. The liferaft door doubles as a bathing platform.

Spaces inside the boat are vast and luminous, with very high-level finishes and equipment. The panoramic coachroof gives a great view towards the sea, even to the front. Large water and gas-oil tanks give peace of mind for even long passages. The project was entierly developped in-house, with Pierre Forgia in charge of inside and outside styling, and David de Prémorel as project manager. The baot was launched in July 2016.
