Infiniti 105 Sailing Yacht

Infiniti 105

Sail into the future - Infiniti 105 with exterior and interior design by Design Unlimited

The Infiniti 105 comes with a very progressive, elegant, dynamic design and a very clean deck layout. Alongside her dynamic look, she comes also with the Dynamic Stability System – also known as DSS – with horizontal foils. The system is proven in the Infiniti 36 and 46. Also, the Baltic 142 will feature a DSS.

There are two bow options. You can choose the pictured reverse bow or a vertical stem. Another option is the seating area in the cockpit. The renderings show the racing version with space for the regatta crew but there is also a cruising version.

There are two general arrangements available. Layout A sees an inviting full-beam saloon with sofa and TV screen in the middle. The big skylight delivers a lot of natural light in the saloon. The bow area belongs to the owner. Two guest cabins (one with Pullman beds, one with twin bed arrangement) are between saloon and owners cabin. The crew area for four persons is aft and has one bathroom for the crew.

Layout B has a sofa area on the port side and dining on starboard. The galley moved from the crew area to the middle between saloon and guest areas. The crew area is getting more comfortable with ensuites. A tender is stored in a garage aft.

bd120 sailing yacht beiderbeck

bd120 by beiderbeck designs with wheelchair access

36m sailing yacht made in Germany - the BD120 by beiderbeck designsKnierim Yachtbau and Ocean Independence.

Perhaps you are thinking “I’ve seen that before“? Then you know the yacht as Dahm 120, presented in 2016. Now it is a project with a Made in Germany stamp. Although I am not a wheelchair user, the feature that the yacht is wheelchair accessible is one of my favorite features. An optional lift can be ordered to reach the cabins.

Also, other areas have a focus on functional design: The double helm station is placed in front of the deck salon. A solution for owners who want more privacy with their guests. The crew can work forward and the guests can enjoy the aft area. Furthermore, beiderbeck designs explains that the position of the helm station in the middle conveys the feeling of steering a 20m sailing yacht.

The spacious deck saloon has a floor area of 55 sqm and comes with a 360-degree view and window surface of 65 sqm to provide a lot of natural light and a loft feeling. These numbers are usually can be found on motor yachts, explains Immo Lüdeling of beiderbeck designs.

The owners’ suite forward has an own separate office, the two twin-bed guest cabins and the two VIP suites are equipped with en-suites. The crew area is aft with the mess, galley and direct access to the engine room and technical area.

The German yard Knierim Yachtbau is known as the builder of the German America’s Cup yacht Germany 1, Tûranor PlanetSolar and the racing yacht UCA for the experienced sailor and entrepreneur Klaus Murmann (deceased in 2014).

The bd120 is for sale as a turnkey project and has a price of EUR 18.5 Mio.

Yx7 Michael Schmidt Yachtbau

Yx7 by Michael Schmidt Yachtbau

22m crossover explorer sailing Yx7 by Michael Schmidt Yachtbau and Design Unlimited with naval architecture by Lorenzo Argento Yacht Design.

The Yx7 bribes with her very characteristic deckhouse that comes with a strong workboat optic and was developed for people who want to sail around the world including the Arctic.

Interior

Although the deckhouse conceals a clear view over the deck, it has other advantages: Guests can enjoy a 360-degree view from the seating area and the captain has an overview while sitting at the navigation desk. Natural light comes through a skylight in the middle (on both sides are solar panels) and the side windows that can be lowered. Also, the side windows of the cockpit can be lowered.

The owners' suite - bright or brighter?

The Yx7 has a base price of EUR 2,380,000 and a maximum price of EUR 3,104,970 without VAT and special requests. The price with my personal requirements adds up at EUR 3.006.180. Details below.

Y7 Tripp 70 Michael Schmidt Yachtbau

Y7 Tripp 70 by Michael Schmidt Yachtbau

Michael Schmidt Yachtbau presents the Y7 Tripp 70, designed by the American yacht designer Bill Tripp.

The Y7 Tripp 70 is a 22m lightweight sailing yacht made of carbon with a modern and clean design. Like many modern and fast sailing yachts, the Y7 has a wide stern, so the yacht will be equipped with a twin rudder. One disadvantage of twin rudders could be a bad maneuverability in marinas but a twin-engine configuration with two 75 hp Volvo Penta engines will compensate that and streams the rudder blades directly. One of the engines serves also as a generator but a further generator is also available as an option.

The yard has the principle

“Keep it simple”

that a family can sail the yacht by themselves or with a small crew. So the yacht has a self-tacking jib. The draft of the yacht with the fixed keel 3.30 meters. But you can order the yacht with a lifting keel to reduce the draft to 1.90 meters. In the sailing mode, the keel bomb hangs in 3.60 meters. There is also a performance keel with a lower center of gravity.

Interior

The Y7 Tripp 70 has a basic layout and four layout options. Owners’ cabin with en-suite bathroom is always in the forward area, crew cabin next to the tender garage at the aft. Dining and living area with coffee table amidships. The interior is made of lightweight materials with veneer.

The Owners' Suite

The price starts at EUR 1.820.000, my personal configuration (who is interested, the list of chosen options is in the tab below) ends at EUR 2.317.270 (without VAT). When I am choosing all options without special requests, I came on a maximum price of EUR 2.599.630. Price list stand: November 2017.

Wind Motion 70 Trimaran Mathis Ruhl

Wind Motion 70 Trimaran by Mathis Rühl

Mathis Rühl unveiled the Wind Motion 70 Trimaran

Like the R77 concept, also the Wind Motion 70 is equipped with a Rotating Twin Mast. The one on the R77 is called Multiple Rotating Twin Mast (MRTW), the new one on this concept is a further development and is called Rotating Twin Mast² (RTW²). When the yacht is moored, integrated wind turbines can be used to produce energy.

R77 Sailing Yacht Concept Mathis Ruhl Wingmast

R77 with Multiple Rotating Twin Wingmast by Mathis Rühl

Mathis Rühl presents a vision with the revolutionary Multiple Rotating Twin Wingmast on his project R77

The design brief of the R77 was to create a 77m sailing yacht with Panamax height. The result is a sailing yacht concept with the Multiple Rotating Twin Wingmast that has an air draft of 62.5m.

Could the project R77 an example for commercial shipping with sails?

“Furthermore, we see this rig concept as an interesting option for commercial vessels application. If oil price is actually excessively low, making such investigations appearing not directly profitable, we have to keep I mind that the real issue is much bigger and concerns us all. Besides, fossil oil is a much too precious resource to just burn it, when the wind offers us its innocuous, unlimited and beautiful energy.”. – Mathis Rühl

Multiple Rotating Twin Wingmast (MRTW)

Mathis Rühl started the developing of the rig from scratch. The whole running and standing rigging are focused on the rotating platforms. The forestay is very short and offers a helipad on this sailing yacht.

R77 Sailing Yacht Concept Mathis Ruhl Wingmast

Advantages and Disadvantages of different rig types

The designer compared the different rig types Sloop, Schooner, Dyna Rig, Ketch and the Multiple Rotating Twin Wingmast on large sailing yachts. The Dyna and Schooner rig are the ones that would meet the Panamax height requirement but with too many disadvantages.

55m sailing yacht philippe briand

55m Sailing Yacht Concept by Philippe Briand

55m sloop-rigged sailing yacht by Philippe Briand

The ideas for the concept came from a California-based client who wanted a long-range yacht with maximum speed potential, a lot of space inside and outside. Furthermore large tenders up to 6.50m. One is stored under the foredeck, the other one is stored in a lazarette aft that transforms into a beach club. In short: The features of a motor yacht packed in a sailing yacht with a low carbon footprint – also a state-of-the-art propulsion system helps to reach that goal.

55m sloop philippe briand

Designer Philippe Briand comments:

“The building cost for the sailing yacht would be comparable to a motor yacht of the same size. There are a lot of stereotypes in yachting that are not actually true. A sailing yacht is not only for performance and racing. It can be just as suitable as a motoryacht when it comes to exploration, even with a touch more elegance.”

Reichel Pugh 55m Sailing Yacht

55m Sailing Yacht Concept by Reichel/Pugh

Reichel/Pugh designed a 55m sloop-rigged sailing yacht with flybridge (Design 267).

This concept offers an owner’s suite at the aft with direct access to the terrace, walk-in wardrobe, desk and a private salon. Furthermore, there are big windows aft, on port and starboard side to provide a lot of natural light. The yacht features five guest cabins (three double bed cabins and two twin bed cabins). A crew of eight has space forward with crew mess and galley. Each cabin is equipped with ensuite bathroom.

Reichel Pugh 55m Sailing Yacht
Reichel Pugh 55m Sailing Yacht

A lifting keel and double rudder reduce the draft from 7.60m to 4.70m to enjoy the sun beds aft in shallow anchor bays (can be covered by a retractable awning). To visit beaches or other areas for small boats, a 6m tender is stored under the large flush foredeck out of the sight.

The design studio calls it “the next level in luxury yachting”. “The Reichel/Pugh 55m is a pure luxury cruising yacht, that has high performance and easy handling,” says Jim Pugh.

“The curving exterior theme of the yacht is carried throughout the organic shapes of the furniture and particularly reflected in the transom steps down to the aft deck.”, explains the design studio.

40m Perfomance Sailing Yacht Reichel/Pugh

40m Performance Sailing Yacht by Reichel/Pugh

Reichel/Pugh presents a 40m performance sailing yacht for fast and luxurious journeys.

When you like fast sailing yachts, then is Reichel/Pugh one of the first addresses to talk about your project for the right calculations. This 40m performance sailing yacht is also eye-candy for me. Although I like classic sailing yachts like J-Class yachts, I like also sailing yachts with a clean design and a touch of character. The exterior design was created by Adam Voorhees.

40m Perfomance Sailing Yacht Reichel/Pugh

The yacht comes with a flush deck forward, a characterizing deck house and a large aft deck area with sunbeds in the middle. There is also a direct access to the full-beam owner cabin with an office. In the aft area are also two guest cabins. The crew lives forward and includes the mess, the galley, two crew cabins and a cabin for the captain. Dining and lounge area is placed in deck house with a panoramic view. Thanks to the use a lot of glass (windows up to the ceiling and a skylight), the occupants can enjoy a lot of daylight even in privacy when the yacht is docked in the marina.
