Det är alltid intressant att se vad designers ritar för båtar till sig själva, så när Marcelino Botin valde Brooklin Boatyard så blev man ju lite nyfiken. Cool koncept, och duktiga båtbyggare.
Funderade lite på om vi har motsvarande varv i Sverige? Som bygger “klassiska” båtar på beställning från ägare som vill ha det där lilla extra? Som den här. Men det kanske blir alldeles för dyrt…
TOROA is 22-meter yacht designed by Spanish firm Botin Partners. The modern sloop was launched in summer 2017. She is built of wood, carbon fiber, foam and epoxy composites. In hull shape and sail plan TOROA ia very similar to many of today’s modern racing boats with extended bow sprit, plumb bow, wide beam running well aft, T-bulb (lifting) keel and twin rudders. Unlike today’s stripped-out racing yachts, TOROA has interior accommodations and cruising amenities to allow her owner, family and guests to cruise the world’s oceans in comfort, style and speed.
Botin Partners is perhaps best known for their work with modern race boat design having been responsible for many of today’s successful box rule racers like TP52s, Class 40s, Volvo 70s, HPR/IRC 44s & IRC 52s. Botin Partners has had equally great success in the world of cruising sailboats with designs that marry high performance with comfort and style such as the Grand Soliel 37, 40, 43, 46 & 50, the Murtic 52 and other custom one-off projects.
