The new 70m 'defies sailing convention but not the sailing experience' The new 70m 'defies sailing convention but not the sailing experience'

UK–based Dixon Yachts has launched a 'game changing' 70–metre design, offering sailing performance and interior space planning normally associated with motor yachts.

DynaRigs have been chosen to maximise the sailing opportunity and minimise the sailing effort. Unlike a conventional rig which requires a small army of crew, this Dyna rigged vessel can be commanded and operated singlehandedly. The twin rigs have been chosen to maximise the sailing efficiency, and the healthy sail area to displacement ratio will assure an exhilarating sailing experience. The tried and tested control systems have proven in-service reliability.

Internally the vessel shares many design characteristics with motor yachts. The main deck features a large bright and airy glazed deck saloon facing aft to the swimming pool, four comfortably proportioned guest cabins and a full width owners cabin incorporating balconies and a featured backlit glass box wardrobe. On the lower deck the guests are provided with a cinema, a spa with sauna and a gym; on the upper deck with the bridge is a formal saloon and the internal dining room.

An embarkation tender platform with direct access into the main deck lobby has been accommodated. The guests can choose between a 7m limousine and a 7m sports tender; the crew have a 6m day to day tender.

This is a statement yacht, for a customer who is not afraid to do something different. It defies sailing convention but not the sailing experience.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
