Owen Clarke Design unveil 40m sailing yacht plans

Owen Clarke Design unveil 40m sailing yacht plans

Owen Clarke Design will be unveiling a new design concept at the Monaco Yacht Show this month. The OCD 130 is aimed at the owner ‘who wants to engage with their sailing and yet can also satisfy the needs of family and guests’. Modern, functional, and capable of fast trans-oceanic passage making, the OCD 130 aims to combine an engaging sailing experience with being a luxurious home for family and guests.

The hull, by nature of its Open Class Yacht pedigree, is both voluminous inside and can be sailed at more comfortable low angles of heel compared to more conventional designs. The dreadnought bow offers a maximum waterline length, reduces the yacht’s displacement-to-length ratio and provides a safer and more secure deck space to tack spinnakers and furling gennakers without the additional complication of a bowsprit. The keel is lifting, with a range of over 2m and a max sailing draft of 6.6m.

The sail plan is ‘both powerful and controllable’, set on a carbon three spreader rig and incorporating many of the latest developments in short-handed sail handling technology, scaled up and applied to the challenges faced on modern superyachts.

The owners have their own private (if they choose) aft terrace on the sea with direct access to their accommodation. The elevated sun lounging deck separates this area from the central cockpit which is at the same time a practical protected safe haven when sailing offshore, as well as a comfortable outside dining and lounging area. One of the prominent features of this sailing yacht is the large sliding glass section of the coachroof which retracts to provide enhanced al fresco dining.

OCD have designed a four and five cabin versions of the same yacht and allow for plenty of flexibility. The skipper and crew are accommodated forward of the main galley and ships office and incorporate separate open plan crew mess, dedicated skippers double cabin and further cabins for four crew.
