33m Performance Cruising Sloop In Production At Vitters Shipyard
Published: Tuesday, 07 October 2014
Dutch yacht builder Vitters Shipyard will begin the production of a high quality performance sloop. The 33-metre sailing yacht boasts naval architecture and exterior styling by Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design. It is the first yacht under construction for the new design studio.
The shipyard will pay special attention to noise and vibration control. Sailing performance and sail handling will be state of the art. Her lifting keel offers good upwind performance as well as access to shallow waters and anchorages.
The hull will be constructed of lightweight carbon fibre composite and is under construction at Green Marine, Vitters’ composite subsidiary in Southampton. The hull is scheduled for completion in June 2015.
Over the past 24 years the Vitters Shipyard has completed large custom sailing yachts up to 66-metres with an 85-metre vessel currently under construction. Obtaining the highest standards requires the ability to translate the owner’s vision into reality.The Vitters team builds one or two high-quality sailing yachts per year to suit each owner’s specific needs.
She will be delivered in 2016 at Vitters Shipyard in Zwartsluis, The Netherlands.
