Top 50 Largest Sailing Yachts in the World

Top 50 Largest Sailing Yachts in the World

Nirvana | 53.5m (175'6")

built in 2007, Netherlands

Nirvana takes advantage of a large fly bridge sailing yacht experience but has an added, particularly interesting feature: a total draft of no more than three metres.

This has been achieved by developing a full-bodied hull form with generous beam, high ballast ratio and a pivoting centreboard to take the draft to 10 metres when fully deployed. This high aspect ratio foil gives efficient upwind performance, while the combination of generous beam and high ballast ratio gives excellent stability.

Builder: Vitters Shipyard
Naval architecture & Exterior styling: Dubois Naval Architects
Interior design:GCA / Josep Juanpere Miret
