Dubois-designed 35m Super Stern wows with convertible beach club

Dubois-designed 35m Super Stern wows with convertible beach club

Dubois Naval Architects has designed a new 35 metre Super Stern sailing yacht that’s set to launch by 2017.

The Super Stern sailboat has been designed for a current Dubois client, who the designer says is an experienced owner and superyacht regatta participant. The brief for the Dubois Super Stern yacht is to be a “fast competitor on the racecourse while not compromising on superyacht luxury and comfort for family oriented, bluewater cruising.”

As the project’s name suggests, the new yacht possesses a unique design feature in a convertible “super stern” platform that opens a full 180 degrees to create a huge beach club.

This sheltered beach club rivals that found on motor yachts. Direct access from the master suite will give the owner private access to the water, and it also creates a secondary aft deck lounge area right on the water’s edge.

A 3.3 metre tender can be stowed beneath this folding stern platform, while the crane to lift the tender is hidden in the yacht’s boom.

Inside, her accommodation includes a full beam owner’s cabin and two twin guest cabins, all with en suite bathrooms. Two crew members will be accommodated in twin bunks and the captain will enjoy a double berth.

Designed to be a cunning competitor on the superyacht circuit, the Dubois 35 metre Super Stern will carry a regatta-worthy sail wardrobe comprising a flat-top mainsail, blade, code and bowsprit-set gennaker.

The hull is designed to be built in carbon fibre with a structural Nomex core and vaccum infused epoxy. A lifting keel will allow for shallow water cruising.

Dubois says the build yard and interior design team is still being decided, but the Super Stern is expected to be launched by summer 2017.
