The 85m ketch-rigged high-performance sailing yacht AQUIJO is a collaboration between Dutch shipyards Vitters and Oceanco.

Vitters is well-known for large sailing yachts and Oceanco is a specialist for even bigger motor yachts. Her exterior design and naval architecture were delivered by Tripp Design, while her interior design was made by the Hamburg-based design office Dölker + Voges.

Although AQUIJO is very big for a sailing yacht, her profile looks sporty to emphasize her promise to be the world’s largest high-performance ketch with a two-deck superstructure (and a flybridge on top) for a lot of space inside and outside.

Sailors like me are fans of rudder feedback which is not really given on big yachts. Vitters developed a rudder system which translates the hydrodynamic forces to the steering wheels on the flybridge.

Vitters describes her interior as clean, contemporary and modern (no interior photos yet). The forwarded mast has a height of 90m and is one of the tallest in the world.

Many wishes for a lot of fun and safety journeys to AQUIJO‘s owner and the crew.
