OCD featured in Superyacht Design magazine




This concept is a yacht for an owner who really wants to sail. Futuristic yet practical, capable of transoceanic passage making, transporting its owners and their guests in style and comfort over long distances, as well as if necessary being a home from home at anchor in remote bays for significant periods. Key to the design and where often large sailing yachts are compromised is the ease of running the deck and handling the large sail-plan with a small crew. With regard to performance, the goal was not just to create a modern comfortable sailboat, but in doing so retain the feeling of being connected with the water and the wind, in a yacht which is responsive,  exciting to sail and where the main engine is firmly relegated to manouvering in and out of port......................

For their enjoyment underway as well as alongside/at anchor the owner and guests have three separate areas in which they can relax on deck, away if they wish from the sailing activity of the yacht. The owners have their own private (if they choose) aft terrace on the sea with direct access to their accommodation. A sun lounging deck separates this area from the central cockpit which is at the same time a practical protected safe haven when sailing offshore, as well as a comfortable outside dining and lounging area at other times. One of the defining  features of this sailing yacht however  is the  large sliding glass section of the coachroof which can discretely stow away to provide  ‘al fresco dining’ with the full facilities of the saloon area available under a closed or open roof and aft bulkhead.
