    The recently signed Vitters 108' sloop "Inoui" designed by Philippe Briand should be delivered in May of 2013. Andrew Winch is in on the interior design. Here is a look at one of the cabins.

    yep but what are you to say, heck if I owned a 66-meter sloop i'd have blow up all over. Seriously though...it's inflatable so it can be taken down.

    "Inoui" has now left Green Marine's sheds where she her composite structure was built. She was lifted into the hold of a cargo ship to be transported to Holland where naturally she will be finished at Vitters for her delivery a little less than a year from now in 2013.

    "Agalia" is such an impressive vessel not only for her sheer size but her design is very nice. The hull form-lines and curved glass superstructure. Notice her sail art as well by Magne Furuholmen, interesting.

    Here is a nice video to go along with the photos...

    Thanks for the photos and video of a real stunner!

    Everything you mention about her makes her the perfect example of life is art and art is life!

    Apparently the 46-meter in-build at the moment is the new "Ganesha"...

    Anyone know about a supposed 85-meter sloop new order for Vitters?

    This order was mentioned on the global order book some time ago, but only recently they added the name of the yard. If correct, it would be a very nice order for Vitters. And in aluminium, also quite rare considering the length.
    Couldn't find confirmation anywhere, hope the 101 meter Dubois sloop (with 125 meter / 410 ft! mast) will be annouced soon.

    (Although building an extremely large yacht can be risky for a yard, Blohm & Voss apparently lost a lot of money on "Eclipse", and Nabila was not a succes for her yard...)

    Hey,
    I can tell you that the 85m sailing yacht is a cooperation between Vitters and OceAnco so she is probably Y711!! I guess they built her at OceAnco with Vitters' people...She is a Bill Tripp design! That is all I know at the moment.

    Well oceAnco's involvement wouldn't be THAT surprising now since they been contracted to build Project 'SOLAR' (that was surprising).

    If correct, she will be built in aluminium, but where? At Aluship?

    Because it's a sailing yacht, and completely different than the "standard" Y range of yachts, they will probably have given that project another letter/number "name"? As they have done with PA164?

    Perhaps a consultation with the Dalai Lama is in order here

    Perhaps a consultation with the Dalai Lama is in order here, the bodhisattva of compassion, AvalokiteŇõvara.

    Somehow... 66m or 85m just seems over the top.
    I suppose it will be palatial.
    Cost the earth.
    Win awards on the boat show circuit.
    Take a trillion pretty pictures.
    Consume tanker of glossy ink on a forest of paper to sell glossy magazines.
    Spend most of its life bolted to the slip.
    Be operated by two crew members, port and starboard.
    Be on the market when the shine wears thin,
    after a polish job refit.

    Its like Maltese Falcon, Athena and ectectect ... one mans desperate attempt at breathing through a needle gasping for life's knowledge of complete happiness.

    A video by a crew member onboard the sailing superyacht "Nirvana" taken from the very top of her mast while passing under the Bridge of the Americas in Panama.

    That is one brave crew member though but a video that should be kept for eternity!
