What is it?
Claydon Reeves’ 52 metre raised pilothouse sailing yacht design that uses organic curves in carbon and glass to mimic the compound eyes of a dragonfly.
Why we love it
It’s more than a (very) pretty hull. Sparked by an enquiry from a collector of modern sculpture, Dragonfly was developed from Claydon Reeves’ 46 metre Exo sailing yacht concept with Dykstra Naval Architects — the masters of making fantastical designs buildable. The main load bearing elements of the yacht would be built from a carbon monocoque space frame, like a modern motorbike, allowing for massive areas of glass. The light-flooded interior includes a split-level saloon and a beach club with a pop-out bathing platform.
