Rob Doyle Design and Van Geest Design created the 63m sailing yacht concept FURY.

Although the concept will have a gross tonnage of 705gt (about 40 % more than other sailing yachts in this class of size), FURY is a high-performance-oriented sailing yacht with lightweight materials like aluminum hulls a superstructure made of carbon fiber.

“A drop-down prop running on a DC bus diesel-electric system and a swing keel performance centerboard, that acts as a long keel when up for motoring, give good directional stability and damping when at anchor. The idea of this project is to offer huge performance gains with an alloy hull (you do not always need to go carbon) and have race boat foils and rig package but still have a safe/clean deck that is client-friendly.”

Tender storage is located on the foredeck that welcomes two 7m tenders. When the tenders are out, the bays transform into pools. Private access from the owner’s cabin is possible. Speaking about the master stateroom, this area has 95 square meters of space and is located on the main deck forward. Moreover, the main deck contains a 130 square meter full-beam salon that has a 270-degree view.

“The approach in Project Fury has been from the start ‘Why Not’. Just because superyachts are what they are now does not mean
they should stay this way. New, never done before, seem impossible or too complicated when first suggested, are no reasons to rule
it out. We were constantly looking at every aspect of the design and saying, ‘I know we do it this way normally but is there a better way?’
If we did not have to worry about any financial, practical, or technological limitations what would we do, then is that better then what we have and can we now make it work within the context of the limitations of the project.
This is why we truly believe that this project will redefine what a 63m sailing Superyacht can be, and we also know where we want
to and can go next in this development.
As a result of a growing demand for larger sailing yachts we have already been asked to take this design philosophy and implement it for yachts above the 2200G”
