Vitters Shipyard signs new order for Malcolm McKeon-designed sailing yacht

Vitters Shipyard signs new order for Malcolm McKeon-designed sailing yacht

Dutch yacht builder Vitters Shipyard has signed a new order for a 33-metre sloop sailing yacht designed by British studio Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design.

Currently known as project MM33, the high-performance sailing yacht was commissioned by an experienced owner and is expected to be delivered in 2016. The contemporary, lightweight interior will be styled by Design Unlimited.

To be constructed in carbon-fibre, the sloop yacht will be built using Pure Composite engineering with a thick-foam core and carbon fibre laminate to reduce her internal structure and increase her interior volume. Sound deadening materials will also be used to minimise noise and the guest accommodation will be located forward on the quieter part of the vessel.

With 7.5 metre beam, the yacht is designed for top sailing performance and will sport a large sail plan with a sizable righting moment and lifting keel. She is expected to have a displacement of 80 tonnes.

A key feature of the design is an openable all-glass canopy that provides natural light to the saloon as well as good ventilation when open. The canopy's glass will be fit with heat-reflective foil to reduce heat transfer into the interior.
