Yacht designers Rob Doyle Design and Van Geest Design have unveiled their latest super sailing yacht, Fury 500. The yacht follows in the wake of the Fury 63 which was revealed with SuperYacht Times in June to much interest from the industry. The design duo have revealed that many clients and professionals had expressed an interest in a sub 500 GT version of the Fury 63, which has led them to developing this latest yacht. The Fury 500 is a 499 GT, 54-metre, hybrid yacht "with all the benefits of the Fury 63 but in a more compact package".Like the 63-metre Fury model, the yacht will have a main deck, full-beam master suite on the main deck, a highly unusual feature for yachts in this size category.

Discussing the hybrid propulsion package, the designers noted that the Fury range is made to be as green as possible in terms of propulsion, with the aim that hydrogen fuel cell technology could be used for the yacht in the future. This would theoretically provide the yacht with zero emission capabilities and an unlimited range allowing her owners true autonomy. In terms of safety, the yacht has been designed for maximum ease of handling, without the need of a large crew, while still hitting high speeds so that she will be a competitor in some of the toughest regattas. The designers will be attending next weeks Monaco Yacht Show to advertise their work, including the Fury projects. You can view the Fury 63 in SYT 3D and compare her directly to other super sailing yachts in the fleet.
