Superyacht-söndag | Aglaia

Aglaia is a spectacular 66m sloop-rigged aluminium yacht designed by naval architect Dubois Design. The large sloop rig is all carbon with EC6 rigging and gives a sail area to displacement ratio equivalent to a racing yacht.
With the motto to develop a 60m+ yacht that sails like a dinghy, the design and build team set specific targets like hoisting the main sail in less than two minutes and tacking the boat within 30 seconds.

Vitters Shipyard developed an innovative storage system on two drums in the forepeak for the Staysail and Code 1. In addition, Vitters designed a new type of furler for the Staysail to increase safety of the crew by completely avoiding manual handling for large sail hoisting and setting.

Aglaia started off her second Mediterranean season with a spectacular novelty: she now carries a Code 1 artwork by the Norwegian art designer Magne Furuholmen. This is the worldwide largest artwork on canvas. Though one can hardly call a 3600 sqm painting a detail, this is yet another confirmation of nearly every single detail of this yacht being extraordinary.

    Såg denna fantastiska båt i Palma förra året. Storleken beskrivs bäst genom jämförelsen: Det satt en kille och jobbade på fjärde eller femte spridarparet. Han såg ut som när det sitter en gråsparv på mina spridare..

    Synd inte våra Norska vänner vill ha sina båtar hemma i Scandinavien. Hade varit trevligt att se henne segla Færdern eller Marstrand Big Boat ;-)

      Årsaken til at den i hvertfall aldri kommer til Norge er vel at det vil koste +/- 100 millioner kroner i moms (VAT), så det hadde blitt en dyr Færderseilas!

    Allvarligt talat, det såg ju skittråkigt ut! Hade mkt hellre seglat CB66 i Marstrand i helgen.

    Hej
    Är det den norske miljardären och fiskarsonen Kjell Inge Røkkes nya leksak ?
