Two dream boats–that you will never be able to afford

It doesn’t cost anything to dream, so here are two dream boats that, unless you’re a real paperie, you’ll never be able to afford.

Please build the boat of my dreams. This is what, in Royal Huisman, they heard asked by a wealthy Asian shipowner. The dream boat will measure a beauty of 81 meters and, once launched, will rightfully enter the top ten longest sailing boats in the world. Built of aluminum to a design by Mark Whiteley in collaboration with Dykstra Naval Architects, it will have a 12-meter beam, weigh 1150 tons, and accommodate 12 people plus 13 e quipment members. The armament will be that of a three-masted Panamax schooner, that is, measuring no more than 62.5 meters in height, the maximum allowed to cross the Panama Canal. No word yet on whether the owner will use the boat for racing, but the winning potential seems to be there. The yacht is expected to be launched during 2020.

French shipyard JFA recently announced the start of construction of a 70-footer named FC2 (which stands for Finot Conq and Fast Cruiser). The yacht will have an aluminum hull and epoxy resin infused superstructure, which will be assembled by bonding and bolting, a technique that JFA has been using for many years now. Signed by Finot Conq and with a wide hull, significant sail plan and low weight the boat will definitely perform. The 4.40-meter draft will also help increase performance, but can be reduced to only two meters if needed. The interiors, made of ultralight materials, will be in zebrawood and include a large salon with kitchen, a full-beam master cabin, two guest cabins, and one reserved for the crew. The boat will be equipped with a 180-hp engine and two bowthrusters to facilitate maneuvering.
