Sailing yacht Bougainville almost ready to be launched editor Maarten visited Claasen Shipyards in the Netherlands on monday, and discovered the yard is currently very close to completing the modern 72 ft racer/cruiser Bougainville.

The exterior of this impressive sailing yacht was designed by Berret Racoupeau and the interior comes from the boards of Rhoades Young. With an LOA of 22.07 m and a beam of 5.63 m, Bougainville is a special project for the way she incorporates the very latest technologies and most advanced yacht building methods. The keel is fitted with an hydraulic lifting system, giving the yacht a depth of 2.30 m and 3.90 m, respectively.

Bougainville is being built to the MCA code for sailing yachts up to 24 m and will be CE-A certified.

Other projects at the yard are a 90 foot Truly Classic, and a 60 foot Dykstra design. The hull of a 126 foot Truly Classic will soon arrive at the yard to be completed
