Launched in July at Vitters Shipyard in Harlingen, the Netherlands, the 33-metre sailing yacht Missy has made her way to Mediterranean waters and was recently captured underway for the first time. Designed by Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design, Missy was created as a ‘world-cruising yacht that was lightweight and fun to sail’ with a strong focus on safety on board for the entire family.
Despite her lightweight construction, the engineering team at Pure Composite in New Zealand paid great attention to achieving a noise and vibration free ride by implementing various soundproof and thermal insulating solutions, all the while keeping a close eye on achieving the highest level of performance possible.
“Missy has exceeded all my expectations and is a delight to sail; she is perfectly balanced with plenty of stability to carry her generous sail plan,” commented McKeon. “She will live up to all expectations as a comfortable world cruising yacht as well as a competitive regatta yacht.”
A unique feature on deck is the custom dodger system that is deployed at the touch of a button. This feature works in tandem with a bimini system that is erected with the dodger in position. The solution offers a guest friendly environment that essentially disappears when not in use.
Design Unlimited created the yacht’s modern interior that consists of four cabins below deck in total – an owner’s suite forward and three guest cabins amidships and aft – to accommodate up to eight guests. Missy will be run by four crew members who are comfortably housed in two twin crew cabins. Crew comfort was a priority and will be greatly appreciated by Missy’s team as she is expected to embark on a world cruise following a season in the Caribbean.
