Coming to you live from the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show, Baroque Yachts checks out what’s trending right now – the revival of sailing yachts
The excitement is palpable, and there is so much to see here at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show on the first day. The show, which runs from Wednesday 28 September to Saturday 01 October, has opened with a bang. Yacht aficionados and prospective yacht buyers are taking everything in their stride as there’s so much to see and do here. But we’ve already noticed a major trend we thought we’d share with you.
The major trend right now is the rising number of sailing yachts on display at the show. Leading the pack is the 70m Sybaris from Perini Navi, followed by the 48.15m Arzana Navi offering called Nativa.
A definite must-see, Sybaris is also one of the largest yachts at the show. Only launched this year, this sailing super yacht was commissioned for owner Bill Duker, who has numerous vessels in his fleet. Designed by Philippe Brand, this magnificent yacht includes towering carbon fiber masts and a total sail plan of 3,000 square meters. Interiors were created by PH Design and are modern and minimal.
Also making waves at the show is the Nativa, which was launched in 2013. Italian-made, this 48.15 aluminium sloop offers accommodation for up to 10 guests in 5 cabins.
When it comes to classic sailing yachts, the 41.3m Alejandra is one of the best. She may have been around since 1993, but she’s still going strong. She boasts classic styling by Bruce King inside and out and accommodates up to 8 guests in 4 beautiful mahogany cabins.
New on the block is Crossbow, a 31.7m Milanese-styled masterpiece. She boasts four cabins that can accommodate up to 8 guests and space for a crew of four. Another newbie is Shamanna, launched by Finnish yard Nautor in April. This 35.2m yacht was designed for high performance sailing and accommodates up to 8 guests in four cabins.
Of course, that’s just a taste of what’s on offer in the sailing yachts category. There’s also the 37.43m Ludynosa G, from New Zealand’s Fitroy Yachts and Baltic offering, the 32.64m Inukshuk, one of three yachts on display at the show with interiors created by London designers Adam Lay Studio. Also watch out for Emmaline, designed by Dykstra Naval Architects and 32.33m in length, which boasts an aluminum hull and accommodates up to six guests.
