Erica XII

From sleek sloops to stately schooners, our definitive list of the largest sailing yachts in the world starts with a modern classic...

Erica XII is the fifth superyacht designed by Andre Hoek to be built by Dutch shipyard Vitters and one of the largest sailing superyachts in the world. Her hull design shows generous overhangs reminiscent of J Class yachts, with a modern round bilged canoe body.

There are two steering stations on deck, the aft deckhouse being exclusively for the owner’s use. Apart from the owner’s suite, there are four further staterooms, all with en-suite facilities.

Fleurtje

Designed by Robert Clark, Fleurtje was built in 1960 at the renowned Dutch shipyard of De Vries Lentsch. She was previously known as Carita and then Argonaftis.

At 57 metres this sailing yacht has extremely elegant lines. The long overhangs at bow and stern, the rich Awlgrip blue hull and three Douglas Fir masts with stay sail plan, combine into a handsome profile.

Since her launch, Fleurtje has undergone four refits and been maintained to Lloyds class standards. Such is the degree of ongoing improvements that she is now, certainly, one of the finest three-masted schooners afloat, accommodating 12 guests in six staterooms.

Length Overall (includes bowsprit): 57m

Atmosphere is the third yacht in Perini Navi’s 53 metre series and currently 43rd in the list of the largest sailing yachts in the world. Designed to maximise the use of internal space, she offers exceptionally voluminous accommodation for up to 12 guests.

Her enormous ketch rig delivers some 15.5 knots in ideal sailing conditions, a performance also provided by her twin 1,257 horsepower Deutz diesels. Her interior is familiar and warm, with comfortable furniture, russet-tined fabrics and elegant cherrywood joinery. Her lower deck features a sauna and separate Turkish bath.
