Mylius is ready to officially land in the racer world. While the Italian shipyard’s forays into the performance world are well known, all Mylius are in fact designed for dual use, cruising and sporting, this time we are talking about a design expressly conceived for racing at the highest level, while remaining a versatile boat in other contexts as well.

The Mylius 60CK is a completely new design, the sporty evolution of the Mylius 60FD. An offshore-racer & performance cruiser. A yacht designed to take a leading part in the most important offshore races, but also equipped with enough space and comfort to be an excellent yacht for summer cruising in the Mediterranean.

The concept of the project, at the express request of its first owner Guido Paolo Gamucci (owner of the Cippa Lippa, ed.), was developed by envisioning a system of canting-keel of the latest generation achieving a substantial increase in stability with a draft that is not excessive (3,500 mm) considering the size of the boat.

With all-carbon construction (bottom structures are made of pre-preg fabrics) and reduced ballast weight, made possible by canting-keel, displacement values were kept under 15.0 tons in lightship conditions. The hull volumes have been totally rethought for the higher speeds and lower heeling angles envisioned in the design: thus, the new hull features higher LOA/LWL and Bmax/Bwl ratios, fuller bow volumes, more flared center sections to increase shape stability, extremely flat stern exits, and finally a reduced canoe body dive and a less pronounced rocker. Thanks to the increased stability provided by the canting-keel system, the 60 CK offers a very generous sail plan, and the relative upwind and downwind sail area values are close to those of a pure racer.

The deck plan, while retaining the distinctive Mylius canons, has been rethought for more sporting use: the wheelhouses have been moved to a more forward position, the mainsail traveller is at their aft end, the halyard winches are positioned on either side of the hatch, while the primary winches, mainsail sheet winches (German style system) and back winches are in line on either side of the cockpit.

The winch handling system on board is hydraulic (PTO on main thermal engine) for racing use, however, the lithium-ion batteries installed on board have the capacity to provide the necessary power for cruising handling.

The interior has been designed with a light and sporty feel, with extensive use of carbon, while retaining the necessary comfort for sport cruising. Careful study of the levels and interior layouts allowed the canting-keel system to be contained entirely under the dunnage, and the canard foil case is also positioned so as not to interfere with the living spaces. Layout offers a large master cabin with dedicated bathroom in the bow, two guest cabins with bathrooms in the stern, and the sailor cabin in the far bow. The kitchen and chart table are to the left and right of the access ladder aft of the large central dinette, respectively. Cabinets for personal belongings are also provided in each cabin, as well as ample storage space for clothing and navigation equipment.
