Philippe Briand Presents 62.85 Metre Sailing Yacht Concept Perfect 60
by Miranda Blazeby
London based superyacht designer Philippe Briand has unveiled a 62.85 metre sailing yacht concept named Perfect 60.
The design follows hot on the heels of the 90 metre SY 300, which was presented by Briand in April this year. He described the Perfect 60 concept as the “little sister” of SY 300.
The 62.85 metre yacht will have a beam of 10.5 metres and is the second concept from Briand’s new family of self-sufficient performance yachts.
The ketch features a carbon fibre mast and rig and same contemporary hull and inverted bow as the SY 300.
The design comes as Briand responds to the “growing trend for sailing megayachts,” which he describes as “effectively motoryachts with sails”.
However he added that the Perfect 60 would perform on the racing field and “put her owners on podiums wherever they choose to race”.
Briand said the yacht will also appeal to environmentally conscious owners and is equipped with underwater turbines capable of charging the batteries.
Accommodation is for a total of 10 guests in the owner cabin and four guest cabins, which are placed aft in the yacht’s interior layout. The crew quarters meanwhile sits forward.
