Dutch yacht company Ghost Yachts is currently completing the final details of its first sailing yacht, a 130ft sailing sloop named G130SS. Like the company's motoryachts the sailing yacht is designed to push the boundaries of performance and style.
The G130SS is specifically created as a High Performance sailing yacht and boasts a naval architecture that is highly influenced by modern ocean racing yachts. Dual rudders, lifting keel, flat top mainsail and a carbon sandwich hull with high form stability are just a number of details that emphasise the yacht's intentions to compete with the best in superyacht racing. The concept of the G130SS merges the sailing characteristics of an ocean racer without compromising luxury and onboard amenities.
The exterior styling of the G130SS has been created by Stefano Carugno of the Italian design firm Gloss Design. Naval Architecture and engineering is developed by Schickler Tagliapietra who combine a vast experience in both sailing superyachts and racing yachts. The technical consultancy and project supervision is in the trusted hands of Philip Demler.
