Synopsis

Without having to rely on the power of engines, sailing yachts glide effortlessly through the waves, fulfilling dreams of freedom, adventure, luxury or relaxation. Next to the challenges posed by using materials and spatial concepts that must withstand the forces of wind and water, designers and shipyards must also creatively comply with the increasingly extravagant wishes of the owners. The most important current trend is the demand for extreme flexibility in terms of spaces and fittings that turn the time spent on board into a very special experience such as a cockpit table that converts into a sun bed with a simple twist of the hand, or into an inviting lounge at the push of a button. This book presents a selection of 40 sailing yachts constituting the entire range of available models of this type of boat from racers to cruisers, and from the 7 meter-long maritime design gem to the luxury-class mega-yacht with a length of more than 100 meters.
