This is a concept design for blue water racer cruiser with a raised deck saloon that maintains the sleek appearance of a Mediterranean day sailer. The sailplan and deck layout are optimised for the ORCsy superyacht racing rule and the yacht is designed for an owner to cruise and take part in bucket racing and superyacht regattas. To arrive at the design we researched similar projects, layouts and specifications for vessels of this size and developed performance models for them. One of the advantages of a modern hull form is the additional volume and usable hull area and deck space.

The aft 30% of the yacht is left entirely for the exclusive use of the owner and comprises the secluded aft terrace leading to the owner’s accommodation. Between the private aft terrace and the low profile coachroof there is an expansive lounging area and sailing cockpit with twin helm stations. The working area at the base of the mast blends into a clean foredeck with flush glass hatches. There are ‘bomb bay’ doors let into the foredeck for storage of the staysail, storm jib and gennakers in the dead space between the deck and crew area.

The owners have a private entrance to their suite via the aft deck/terrace and a glazed pneumatic hatch. On entry the private stateroom is symmetrical port and starboard or can be set up for private dining on one side and lounge on the other. The owner’s bedroom suite with shower and Jacuzzi are on the starboard side. The passage way forward is offset to port and provides access to an en-suite guest cabin which would be suitable as a children’s cabin or dual cabin/office space. Proceeding forward, at the end of the companionway there are steps up into the main saloon.

The primary entrance to this area is from the working cockpit, stepping down into the main saloon which has 360-degree panoramic views. To port there is a navigation station and lounge area on a raised section which provides good visibility when seated. To starboard, a dining area, couch on the forward bulkhead and access to the machinery spaces under the saloon. A short flight of steps leads down into the forward half of the yacht which contains two en-suite guest cabins as well as the crew quarters. The aft lazarette/tender garage, and foc’sle compartments are watertight areas.
