    The boat that will stay in one piece is going to win...

    My Song fell off a cargo?! It’s in Italian, anyway they say that there are some rumors about a next boat. They also say that at 68 years maybe he doesn’t want to wait too much.

    My Song fell off a cargo?!

    Moving on after this sad story... Any suggestions for My Song V? what are you going to choose in Mr Loro Piana shoes? some hypothesis considering the racer spirit of the owner : An improved Baltic 130 from same molds as My Song IV Brand new project from R/P and Nauta Clubswan 125 Wally cento Going smaller like a Maxi 72 or a more gentle Botin 80 What else? I see option 1 as the fastest and more suitable. After some years on the water they know what was ok and what need to be reviewed.

    My Song fell off a cargo?!

    Really sad about this story... it was a beautiful boat. I had the opportunity to see her last year and was really an outstanding piece of naval architecture and design. About the cradle I found this picture of Comanche during ship transportation: It’s interesting to notice the difference on the cradle structure... no diagonal struts are visible on My Song picture. Then it’s true that Comanche has a longer keel (about 7 m vs 5 m) but My Song weights at least 3 times Comanche and... also the rig here make the difference. I’m really not an expert in this field but or Comanche cradle is over-engineered or on the My Song one something is missing

    Ultime / G-Class Development

    Stupid question: is not the cockpit partially covering the mainsail reducing the sail efficiency? Most probably is a negligible effect but I was wondering if this is one of the reason why is the first time that this configuration has been used on a Maxi-tri.

    Cheap in comparison to a 115 foot superyacht

    Caribbean 600 2019

    Amazed by the match race between Nikata and Falcon. Not clear how to look at them: is the multimillionaire big-crewed supermaxi vs the cheap small-crewed cat or the giant and heavy monohull vs the ultra-light foiling machine? Anyway this unusual and unexpected battles are among the reasons why sailing has no comparison with any other sports!

    Clubswan 125

    Last superyacht regatta was not that lucky for Mr Laidlaws. Highland Fling XV hit a reef during the first day... and if I recall well before the crash they were behind Baltic 130 My Song. Good reason to get new Hardware!

    Clubswan 125

    At least something is moving... I’m not 100% convinced about one design approach on supermaxi world. I imagine that the owner would like to have something unique... Wally (benchmark for the category) with 100 foot class allow different designs and a complete boat customization. But let’s see the first one in navigation before any judgement... hopefully should be on the water in spring timeframe

    Sydney To Hobart 2018

    True or not I just see Harburg’s comment just a way to reinforce their protest

    Clubswan 125

    Make sense... the 125 launch was originally planned for spring 2019, while now on some build list seem to be postponed to 2020.
