  1. I think this was the original plan for Swan but after all the extra money and effort spent on the 125 project they moved the concept on clubswan 80 class (less complex and cheaper for owners). Said that I agree that if tomorrow a new customer will request a second 125 they will build it… but now the marketing is on the 80 feet!
  2. It’s called Skorpios and will participate at next middle sea race... Also Comanche listed as entrant. Let’s see...
  3. https://www.greatcaperace.com Not seen yet in the forum. Look like an interesting proposal. No idea who is behind that but it’s not really the best period to launch a new format. only doubt is the limitation for boat dimension... why? I think that in the 50 ft range there are several potential contenders. Let’s see...
  4. There was a 100 m sloop concept from Dubois... according to some old interview it was close to production but they never started ( even the potential shipyard was never disclosed): https://www.charterworld.com/news/impressive-101m-sailing-yacht-design-380-dubois-largest-yacht-project
  5. From the front page: https://sailinganarchy.com/2020/05/28/perfect-2/ My Song V? R/P and Nauta are always there... but Royal Huisman and Aluminum build can suggest is not her. Any rumors out there?
  6. Smaller (60 or below) means also a more physically demanding boat and I don’t think it’s the case for the owner. My thoughts. If it is a retirement I’m really sorry... for sure was the most active team in the maxi yacht category .
  7. With Comanche, Arca SGR (former Wild Thing), Blackjack and Rambler around, a really interesting season is taking shape in the Med. Hope this shitty Coronavirus will not smash everything...
  8. Is not the first time they had issue with the masts. The first funnels release was badly oriented on the third mast base. Carbon fiber definitely didn’t like so much heat... Later on the funnels were modified (as they are today) with a Y shape to reduce the exhaust flow on the mast surface. Also today if you look close at the base of the third mast you can clearly see some later patches

Russian interests make me think to a possible Esimit Europa 3. Esimit Europa 2 was the former Alfa Romeo 2 (now Black Jack) and duri

  12. The boat that will stay in one piece is going to win...
  13. https://www.giornaledellavela.com/2019/05/28/my-song-disperso-affondato/ 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.
