Dixon Yacht Design has revealed renderings for a 33-metre sailing superyacht concept named Mini Juno. The project is defined by a single-mast DynaRig sail system and is the scaled-down sibling of the 106-metre Juno concept presented by the UK-based design house at the end of last year.
Similar to the larger concept, Mini Juno “harmonises the best of both motor yacht and sailing yacht design.” A Southern Spars DynaRig has been planned to optimise sailing performance, reaching up to 12 knots under sail, while its smaller footprint minimises the helming effort operated from the flybridge helm.
Environmentally-conscious features have been integrated throughout the 200GT concept, such as the solar panels on the flybridge and an energy recovery turbine that generates electricity under sail. Mini Juno also boasts a hybrid propulsion system that optimises energy usage throughout.
Blending interior with the exterior, the sailing yacht renderings showcase open aft deck space ideal for entertaining. The beach club enables easy access to the water from the flexible stern platform and ladder, while a dedicated garage can house the Williams 505 tender, or it can be stowed on deck with a sub-deck mounted crane for easy launch and recovery.
Accommodation is a four-stateroom configuration across both decks, with a full-beam owners suite aft with adjoining access to the beach club, while plans locate the three additional guest staterooms forward, as well as space forward for four staff.
"This is a future-proof statement yacht, for a customer who is not afraid to do something different. It defies sailing convention but not the sailing experience," said Dixon Yacht Design.
