Superyacht Cosmoledo under construction at Alu Marine

Superyacht Cosmoledo under construction at Alu Marine

It is a delight to discover a new project kept secret until now, even more so when her future programme is so out of the ordinary. Such is the case with the 33.08m sailing yacht Cosmoledo, currently under construction at Alu Marine, France.

Designed by Geronimo Naval Design and the in-house architects, this privately-owned ketch, built in aluminum will have a special purpose. Based in the Seychelles, she will be mainly used for oceanographic exploration and television production in the Indian Ocean, a role reminiscent of Cousteau's Calypso.

The length of the hull is 33.08m, 34.08m including the bathing platform and 40.47m with her impressive bowsprit. The rig comprises two masts of 35 and 25 metres, and a total sail area of 514 square metres, with the back-up of twin 294kW engines giving cruising speeds of between 10 and 12 knots.

Designed to be an explorer, Cosmoledo will remain far from harbours during long cruises. That's why she was designed with a voluminous engine room, easy for maintenance, and a large stowage area for supplies. Her interior layout will accommodate 10 including a small crew.

Cosmoledo left her construction shed three days ago, and will now be fitted out for a delivery scheduled mid 2012.
