ADVERTISEMENT

Vitters Shipyard in the Netherlands has signed a new order for a 164-foot (50m) classic performance ketch.

Commissioned by an experienced owner primarily for cruising, the yacht will be built to Lloyd’s special service craft rules. Construction will start by the end of October, and delivery is scheduled for late 2019.

The yacht will have an aluminium hull, built in Alustar, with a centerboard keel and a carbon rig with in-boom furling. Hoek Design is in charge of the naval architecture, and Rhoades Young Design is responsible for the interior styling. MCM, represented by Nigel Ingram, is serving as the owner’s representative.
