Vitters Shipyard has released more information about 46 metre superyacht project 3072, with the yard describing the first yacht to be built by Vitters to a design by Argentinian designer, German Frers, as a project that displays “the essence of active enjoyment.” Combining extensive experience of high performance cruisers, the inaugural relationship between the two has been an emphatic success.
The vessel has a variety of unique features, one of the most challenging for Vitters to engineer and build being the unique retractable pods for propulsion. Another interesting feature is the headsail storage system developed in-house for the handling of large code sails. Designed for ease of handling with a shorthanded crew, two sail stowing drums are placed under the foredeck.
Project 3072 is primarily designed as a cruiser. However, the involvement of the experienced owners with the teams at the yard regarding high levels of dedication to both performance and sailing abilities ensures that she will be a worthy contestant on the regatta circuit. With this is mind, tilting platforms at the helm stations will enable the owners to steer stress-free for longer periods of time.
The sleek and elegant design of the vessel is typified by a super stylish flush deck, with the contemporary interior created by Oliver Stirling. Project 3072 offers luxurious yet comfortable accommodation over three cabins, including the spacious full-beam owner's’ stateroom with his & her bathrooms, and two guest cabins with ensuite facilities. Delivery is scheduled for late 2015.
