A new 33.5-metre sailing catamaran has been launched at the Chinese shipyard Ruiying Yachts, located in Dalian on the Liaodong Peninsula. Built for a Chinese owner, the French studio of Berret Racoupeau were responsible for her design as was revealed to SuperYacht Times by owner and head designer of the firm earlier this year. Although no official photos have yet been released, the above photo shows the very first preview of the yacht in the water for the first time. Built to RINA class, the sailing yacht has a beam of 14.85 metres, a draft of 2.30 metres and a displacement of 150 tonnes. Accommodation is provided for 10 guests in four guest staterooms, with a master suite located forward of the main saloon between the two hulls of the vessel.
