No thread yet and a quite intresting lineup:
4 Maxis (3+ 1 superyacht)
8 Vor (6 70’s and 2 65)
nearly other 15 boats in the 50-60 feet range
I Think that many has to confirm but it’s a good starting point!
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...
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...
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):
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 .
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...
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.
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
