Andy Moore pens a 40m nature-inspired sailing yacht

Andy Moore pens a 40m nature-inspired sailing yacht

Moore Yacht Design has revealed its first sailing yacht concept, a fantastical 40m sloop inspired by nature.

Inspired by the cheetah, the haunches at the aft end of the hull are designed to give the impression of movement, even when the yacht is stationary. Wrapping over the bow of the yacht, these lines are also intended to accentuate its length.

The unique pattern on the sails mirrors that of an insect's wing and is meant to convey the effortlessness with which they move through the air. The stepped, glass panelled areas are inspired by the armadillo’s bony armour and principal designer Andy Moore, believes they give the yacht’s surface a 'glowing' look and gives the interior lots of natural light and the spectacular ocean views.

A full beam owner's suite is located aft on the lower deck, while one guest cabin is situated forward and the remaining two farther aft. The aft tender garage converts into a beach club once the tender has been removed.
