Latest Vitruvius design released

ADVERTISEMENT

Designs for M/Y Acquaintance, a 105m project from Oceanco and designer Philippe Briand, were unveiled at the Monaco show in mid-September. Designed as part of Briand’s Vitruvius brand, the PYC-compliant yacht is designed to be 20 percent more fuel efficient than other motoryachts her size.

Briand’s Vitruvius Yachts design company uses the Briand Optimized Stretched (BOS) hull design, which is based on the ethos of “ideal proportion” seen in Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. The increased efficiency reduces operational costs, extends cruising range and minimizes emissions, the company said in a statement. Three Vitruvius-designed yachts have been delivered: the 50m M/Y Exuma, the 55m Galileo G and the 73m M/Y Grace E, all built in collaboration with Picchiotti (Perini Navi Group).
