SOLARIS YACHTS // 33.7M // 2020
CEFEA is a 33.77 m Sail Yacht, built in Italy by Solaris Yachts and designed by Monaco Yacht Tempations – delivered in 2020.
A sailor since childhood, CeFeA’s owner knew exactly what he wanted from his new boat resulting in a collaborative process that yielded a 34 metre with performance and family comfort.
From the owner, “I like to sail in the Mediterranean where the wind is often light in the summer. Even though I don’t race, a performance boat means not having to turn on the engine to go somewhere. With my new boat, I can start sailing in a light breeze, and in just eight knots of wind I can go 10 knots.”
He can also do that without a lot of crew, thanks to an easy and carefully thought out sail plan. To make manoeuvring easy, there is no square top main and a long bowsprit. To offset the resulting sail area reduction, they chose a generous high-modulus mast with an upwind sail area of 618 square metres. The jib is self-tacking, while the mainsail can be hydraulically set. CeFeA can tack and jibe with only two crew at the helm. A furling staysail completes the upwind kit, while a code zero, also with furler and tack adjuster, gives the boat more power for reaching. Completing the sailplan is an A2 gennaker with snuffer for a downwind sail area of 1,220 square metres.
SOUTHERN WIND SHIPYARD // 30.5M // 2020
Morgana was built by Southern Wind Shipyard and delivered in 2020 .Her top speed is 13 kn with power coming from a Diesel engine. She can accommodate up to 6 people.With 4 crew members. She was designed by Nauta Design.
Delivered in December 2020, the Custom RP-NAUTA 100 MORGANA completed her maiden voyage from Cape Town to the Mediterranean Sea 30 days after her departure: a 6900-mile sea trial, confirming the great sailing potential of this yacht, delivered by semi-custom and custom sailing yacht builders Southern Wind and powered by Doyle Sails Italy.
“Morgana really ticks all the boxes: style, performance, comfort and cutting edge technology. It is such an experience to helm Morgana, sailing at 16 or 18 knots and feeling completely in control. She is powerful and balanced.” Marco Alberti, SWS General Manager.
SEA EAGLE II
ROYAL HUISMAN // 81.0M // 2020
SEA EAGLE II is an 81 m Sail Yacht, built by Royal Huisman and delivered in 2020. She was designed by Mark Whiteley, Dykstra Naval Architects. Doyle Sails is very excited to be the sailmaker powering SEA EAGLE II, an impressive 81m, triple masted schooner. Designed by Dykstra Naval Architects and built by Royal Huisman, Sea Eagle II is the largest yacht ever built at the shipyard in Vollenhove, The Netherlands and the world’s largest aluminium sailing yacht.
SEA EAGLE II boasts 3,500 sqm of sail area across seven sails and utilises our exclusive Cableless Technology to reduce the loads and make these immense sails easier for crew to handle.
SEA EAGLE II’s sail design, build and installation has very much been an international, collaborative project amongst the Doyle Sails Superyacht loft network – the sails were designed and built by Doyle Sails North America prior to Doyle Sails Palma’s Scott Zebny and Doyle Sails New Zealand’s Chris Blunden fitting the sails and sailing on-board during the sea trials in mid-February.
THE FINAL TWO NOMINATIONS ARE HALEKAI AND GEIST.
