Launched last month, the 106-metre sailing yacht project Y712 remains tied up at Oceanco’s superyacht facility near Rotterdam where the yacht recently had her three advanced DynaRig masts stepped. The project is the largest yacht designed by the Italian design duo at Nuvolari Lenard, who has worked with Oceanco before on superyachts such as Alfa Nero and Seven Seas. The design studio brought their usual Italian flair to the table and managed to hide the vessel’s impressive 2,700 GT volume in a sleek and well-proportioned design.
The yacht's DynaRig setup was designed and optimised by Dykstra Naval Architects, who were also responsible for the naval architecture of the project. Technically considered the largest sailing yacht in the world, Y712 will certainly cause a stir once she is operational with full sails deployed on her maiden voyage.
