Vitters custom sailing yacht Ribelle delivered to Monaco

The 32.64 metre Vitters custom sailing yacht Ribelle has been delivered to Monaco.

This Malcolm McKeon-designed sloop was officially unveiled by the Dutch yard today (April 8) in the presence of her owners.

Speaking at the official presentation, owner Paola Trifiro said: "My husband and I always have a dream. This time our dream was to experiment with new materials, with carbon and titanium. We also want to feel at home on the boat because it is going to be our home on the water."

Accommodation is for six guests split across three cabins, including an owner’s cabin, a VIP and a twin, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to five people.

Remi Tessier has created a bright, contemporary interior décor for Ribelle, with bleached teak, white leather and lacquered copper, which is further enhanced by an all-glass canopy.

As with the most recent Vitters launch Missy, Ribelle’s carbonfibre hull and superstructure were built by the yard’s British subcontractor Green Marine, allowing for a lightweight displacement of just 84 tonnes. She has a maximum beam of 7.72 metres and a draught of 6.05 metres.

Auxiliary power comes from a single diesel engine, while under sail she is expected to achieve speeds of more than 20 knots in moderate conditions.

Go behind the scenes at Ribelle takes shape

Ribelle will fly a simple self-tacking jib and furling downwind sails for short-handed cruising, while a high-tech racing wardrobe will be reserved for taking on the world’s superyacht regattas.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Dutch yard include the newest and largest J Class yacht Svea, which is due to be delivered in time to race at the 2017 America’s Cup Superyacht Regatta.
