Nauta pens supersloop superyacht

Aggressive lines, sleek deck design and high performance – this is the 155-foot (47.25m) yacht drawn by Italian studio Nauta Yachts.

It represents the largest sailing yacht drawn to date by Nauta (which also drew the exterior lines for the 180m Azzam in build at Lürssen), and the team collaborated with maestros of speed Reichel/Pugh, which designed and refined the underwater lines and appendages.

The proposed build would be in pre-preg carbon, giving a favourable length/displacement ratio, with an all-up displacement of just 120 tonnes dry. This, combined with a very high-aspect lifting keel, means a suggested speed in VPP (velocity prediction program) of 16.5 knots in ‘displacement’ mode with a thrilling 26 to 28 knots on a downwind plane.

The low-profile coachroof of the deckhouse blends seamlessly into the deck, and is partially hidden by the 30cm-high bulwarks.

Cutaways in the bulwarks afford a view from the deckhouse windows; but the cockpit serves as a multifunction social area for sunbathing, dining and relaxing for an inside/outside space with the saloon. The master cabin takes advantage of the beamy aft end, and offers a sea lounge in the stern. The preliminary studies for the design are at an advanced stage at the request of a client who was looking for a super-performing 150-foot (45.7m) sloop.
