Construction begins on 68m ketch at Vitters shipyard in the Netherlands

4 June 2024 • Written by Dea Jusufi

Vitters has laid the keel of a 67.8-metre ketch known as Project 3095. Delivery is scheduled for summer 2026. 

The yacht's exterior and interior are owed to long-standing collaborators Hoek Design and is an evolution of the pair's other projects, including the 54.6-metre Adele and the 50-metre Meraki.

Project 3095 will feature long overhangs, traditional finishes and the "Panamax height" which will allow it to clear the Bridge of the Americas in the Panama Canal. 

Other key design features include three deck houses clad in wood and a large, central guest cockpit. Owner and guest accommodation will be positioned aft, while the crew will be located forward.

The yacht will also be equipped with a low-emissions diesel-electric propulsion and charging system. A permanent magnet electric motor will provide charging for the battery bank and propulsion when leaving a harbour or anchorage, allowing Project 3095 to run for a "considerable silent period".

In a world exclusive, Vitters recently spoke to BOAT International about the revolutionary Project Zero – the mission to build a luxurious 69-metre sailing yacht that doesn’t use a drop of fossil fuel.
